the selected artists of the fifth annual:
Art Takes Miami
Without question, the act of creation has always been a historical marker; a civilization’s culture is judged first and foremost by the art left behind. Just as archaeologists offer hypotheses about ancient societies based on cave paintings, historians of the future will base their conjectures about us on the contemporary art that is happening at this very moment.
As technology makes our world more interconnected, the act of creation has become a universal language and a vital conversation. The artists of "Art Takes Miami",
on view this week, are thrilling contributors to that dialogue.

United Arab Emirates / United States
Multimedia performance artist CHOKRA harnesses music, rhymes, light, pyrotechnics, video, scents, vivid powders, traditional ceremonial practices and attire, and gender-bending posturing to present performances full of joy—and his queer-spirited challenge to the status quo. Originally from the United Arab Emirates, where his performances were banned, he moved to New York to find freedom to pursue his work.
United Kingdom / Thailand
Control of the image and visual elements play a significant role in my work and contribute greatly to the portrayal of negative emotions. Experimentation with animation and photo manipulation create a juxtaposition of what is popular with a highly personal viewpoint influenced by my past.
Minneapolis, United States
I am a portrait photographer infatuated with the presence of darkness and how it effects narrative. I rely on serendipity and happenstance to capture the simple suggestion within a gesture or expression.
Los Angeles, United States
My work transparent imaginary something that is tangible. Being able to see sound and hear shadows. A guide to what is invisible.
I am painting with a photorealistic approach using malfunctions and side effects from the media world. I use corduroy to translate the digital character into paintings. By painting these malfunctions, I want to create an area of conflict between the digital world and the traditional medium of painting.
The color co-stars in the work, without it there is nothing. While it combines and accompanies the photography, it fights for its placement in the surrounding space. I use photography and the chromatic spectrum as a means of social expression; a good marriage to build a new formal dialogue.
Philadelphia, United States
My work is an attempt to wrestle with two approaches, creating out of the struggle to join a personal faith a mixture of influences; insecurities, doubts, vanities, and culture. The work is an exploration of theology and imagination, Christ working through chaos and diluted ethos to establish hope, a reconciler for the graceful and the grotesque.
Chae Won Kim
In this installation I create my own virtual world, telling my version of the Genesis. Through this I'm searching for 'the essence.' This exhibition bears the results of an investigation that is rooted in the idea of a 'deep simplicity.' The pieces resemble cumuli floating in space: They form my imaginary inner world that begins from that simple principle – but becomes chaotic and unpredictable with constant proliferation.
Norway / United States
This particular work is about being a voyeur, sitting at 14th-floor balcony looking down at people expressing themselves in a pool where they think they are private. These photos are about their space being invaded, but not knowing it is.
Brooklyn, United States
This project, entitled 'Movie Star' documents the life and fantasies of my aunt Janet, a 39-year-old woman with Down syndrome. My aunt asked me to make images of her, so this project became a collaborative effort working together to create each photograph. Through this process, Janet is able to express herself in ways she would not normally be able to without the presence of a camera.
Seoul, South Korea
There is another face of South Korea, one that is rarely seen outside the country. My photographs are a document showing the less familiar.
