Opening: November 9, 6-9pm

Although borders between countries can separate and entrap people, they are also illusory and capricious. Cuban artist Abel Barroso explores the dynamics of migration in his multimedia interactive exhibit, Un país, una ilusión. The centerpiece is Pinball del emigrante, a row of stark pinball machines set against the New York City skyline. In this virtual frontier between the third and first world, players must overcome many obstacles to reach a seemingly inaccessible Shangri-la. Then there is Mi casa es tu casa, an immense bird cage overlaid with a giant world map. Participants can enter and exit any part, like birds which naturally migrate across hemispheres. There are also works that propose ingenious solutions to common predicaments of migration, such as a machine that dispenses visas and other documents based on supply and demand. Keeping with Cuban tradition, Barroso uses a playful approach to bring attention to serious historical and contemporary issues.

Wynwood Art Walk

November 10, 6-10pm

The temperature has dropped and the atmosphere is electric. With only one month left to Art Basel, the multitudes at the Art Walk are building momentum. If you get there after 8pm and the galleries are overwhelmingly full, you can still get your fix of visual kicks watching the stylish throngs of “hipsterati.” Highlights include Minimo, a survey of Latin American minimalism in the 1960s at Sammer Gallery; A visual diary of Jaime Ferreyros, an exhibit for the iPhone generation at the Lunch Box Gallery; and the geometric sculptures at Art Nouveau Gallery which celebrates its 2nd anniversary in Wynwood and 25th in Maracaibo.
