at The Screening Room, Wynwood, Miami
Wednesday, October 28, 7-9pm
Girls’ Club presents the premiere of the video project Art Trichotomy on location at The Screening Room in Wynwood, Miami. The screening includes 4 short videos, a brief intermission, and is followed by a Q&A session with the project producer Megan Castellón and portrait subjects Dina Mitrani, Tami Katz-Freiman, Lisa Rockford and Jillian Mayer.
Art Trichotomy: Portraits of the Industry is an independent project created by Spring 2015 fellow Megan Castellón. A multi-part video blog series, the project offers a behind the scenes look at how gallerists, curators, and artists interface within the art world, exploring each’s perspectives, and the factors that helped to shape their career trajectories.
Art Trichotomy featured portraits of leading South Florida arts professionals including gallerist Dina Mitrani, curator Tami Katz-Freiman, artist/curator Lisa Rockford and artist Jillian Mayer. Each short video utilizes photos taken by Castellón of the subjects’ environment, workspace, personal objects, and surroundings to present a comprehensive and layered perspective of their public personas.
