A spokesperson said, “During the globally recognized Miami Basel art week, Atlantic Arthouse will be set in the beautiful Villa Paula, an historic building designed by Cuban architect Cayetano Freira in the 1920s in the heart of Little Haiti, a location that echoes the spirit and culture of Miami’s long-established Caribbean communities.

“Carefully selected artworks from various gallery partners and artists will be presented as a curated group show throughout the whole villa, thus enhancing the visitor experience with a meaningful narrative, instead of the traditional compartmentalized approach of an art fair providing one booth per gallery.

“One of the gallery partners is Lisa Howie’s Black Pony Gallery. For this selling exhibition, she will present seven artists: ABWilson, Meredith Andrews, James Cooper, Charles Zuill [Bermuda]; Aimée García, Niels Reyes and Humberto Diaz [Cuba]; Nasaria Chollette [Cayman].

“This first iteration of Atlantic Arthouse will explore a contemporary interpretation of “The Open Boat”, a text by philosopher and poet Édouard Glissant from Martinique.

“The transatlantic journey on the ocean, through the door of no return, ends not in an abyss of totality; rather, this open sea beckons our freedom in our contemporary moment, encourages us to be courageous, to express, to create. Because we can. Because we must. Glissant demands this courage. This curated fair exhibition explores Glissant’s timeless understanding of the human condition.

“In addition, a live program will be presented by Tout-Monde Art Foundation, which will deepen understanding of the region. All our welcome. Join Atlantic Arthouse as we embark on this exciting journey of ‘The Open Boat’.”
