- La Mirada. Looking at Photography in Latin America Today
The Daros Latin America Collection has been taking shape since the year 2000. Its main aim is to gather contemporary Latin American artists. “ La Mirada. Looking at Photography in Latin America Today,” an exhibition organized with works from this collection, attempts to capture the points of view and the artistic and mental approach that accompanies each experience of registering an image through a photographic camera. Dermis Pérez León’s article describes the importance of this Latin American photography show within a European context. Read article



- Ernesto Neto. The sensorial and the temporal. “My works are sites of sensation”

Lisbeth Rebollo Gonalves explains this in her text. The author analyzes Netos creations, the importance of the materials he uses in his works, and describes the particularities of some of his most recent work. Read article

New Work for Sale in Virtual Galleries

- ArtSpace/Virginia Miller Galleries
For more than 35 years, Virginia Miller has introduced artists with unique personal visions and techniques to the South Florida art community. These have included numerous mid-career artists as well as such historically significant ones. Since its inception in 1974, the gallery’s monthly or bimonthly exhibitions have included a history of photography, with 136 images dating to the invention of the medium; a major exhibition of paintings and sculpture by Karel Appel; documentary photos and an installation of grass growing in the shape of Ana Mendieta’s body. The common denominator has been the "spirit" or artistic integrity of the work, a highly accomplished technique, and outstanding value. Miller strongly believes that a dealer in contemporary art has a greater responsibility to help people learn how to look at art, to feel what it’s about, and not to be intimidated by new art forms. Miller exhibits at such shows as Art Miami, Art Palm Beach, and Arte Americas.
