Monday - Saturday, November 28 - December 3 from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Alejandra von Hartz Gallery will present Invisibles Palpables, a solo exhibit of works by Guatemala-born artist Luis González Palma.

The show, which was prepared in two stages, is an incursion into what the author calls Lyrical Abstraction, and in order to produce these two marvelous series, Luis González Palma dug into the photographic archives of the Mesoamerican Regional Research Center (CIRMA) in Antigua, Guatemala, and the Astronomic Observatory of Córdoba, Argentina. Open Sunday and Monday, December 4 and 5, by appointment.

Q & A, Nine Contemporary Cuban Artists

Wednesday - Sunday, November 30 - December 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

MDC Museum of Art and Design presents an exhibition of nine contemporary Cuban artists working in various media, highlighting artistic practices that reflect a polyvalent vision of Cuban reality today. Addressing their country’s national and political myths, they examine history, failed ideologies, corruption, censorship, and the manipulation of public opinion. Rather than a complacent view, Q & A, Nine Contemporary Cuban Artists emphasizes these artists’ critically aware point of view, acknowledging the existence of a line between art and political activism that they cannot cross without the risk of reprisal from Cuban authorities. Organized by Havana-based curator Cristina Vives, Q & A includes work by Alexandre Arrechea, Alejandro Campins, Javier Castro, Humberto Díaz, Fidel García, Alejandro González, Lorena Gutiérrez, Tony Labat, and Fernando Rodríguez, the majority of whom live and work in Cuba. On view through January 15, 2017. Admission is free.

Miami Street Photography Festival

Thursday - Sunday, December 1 - 4

​​The MSPF© is an international photography festival that showcases the best of contemporary street photography viewed through the eyes of emerging photographers in this genre. The goal of the Festival is to establish a global platform for learning through exhibitions, workshops, lectures and other events. ​This Festival is a collaborative effort to advance the work of photographers who pay attention to everyday life in order to capture the world around us.​ Street photographers use their keen sense of observation to capture compelling candid moments in the everyday life of strangers, whether it be a gesture, facial expression, action or scene. Their method is often likened to a mirror held up to society, reflecting reality. There is no set-up involved, no manipulation of the scene and very little or no post-processing of the image. At the heart of street photography is the "decisive moment." This is the split second when an image becomes complete in its composition - when each element of the image is in balance, in context and essential to the scene. This is when the shutter is released and the moment is captured forever. Fair hours are Thursday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m.

Coral Cross III

Saturday, December 3 from 9:30 to 11:30 p.m.

Coral Cross III is part of BFI's new Nomadic Miami model, which presents a series of roving exhibitions, performances and programs in specific locations determined by cutting-edge artists. The launch will feature the first solo art exhibition of Miami-raised artist Jorge Elbrecht in conjunction with a multi-media installation by Los Angeles-based sculptor Max Hooper Schneider. The band Coral Cross will perform for this installation at Miami Beach’s historical Colony Theater. This one-night only exhibit and performance will be open to the public. Jorge Elbrecht (born San Jose, Costa Rica. 1978) is a composer and visual artist. Max Hooper Schneider (born Los Angeles, CA, 1982) graduated from Harvard University in 2011 with a master’s degree in landscape architecture. Coral Cross was born out of conversations between Hooper Schneider and Elbrecht. It is a choral thrash metal band helmed by Elbrecht and drummer Lev Weinstein (Krallice). The band's music is simultaneously blurry and fast paced, characterized by single-note guitar lines layered over with barely-audible cathedral harmonies. Joining Coral Cross for this performance will be James Richardson (guitar) and Mike Morrell (bass).

Wallpaper* Handmade Exhibit

Wednesday - Sunday, November 30 - December 4

Wallpaper* is set to exhibit its extraordinary “Handmade 2016: Hotel Wallpaper” exhibit at the Studios at W South Beach with a Vernissage on Wednesday, sponsored by Cadillac. Art observers are invited to browse through this year's masterpieces and see the ideas that first inspired them in the Wallpaper* Sketchbook. There is drama, from Jean Nouvel's what-a-welcome aluminum installation piece to Wonmin Park's monumental marble reception desk; sophisticated play, from JinSik Kim's sculptural mini golf course to the late, great Vladimir Kagan's Ferris wheel magazine rack; and, of course, innovation and attention to detail, from Christian Liaigre's writing station to David Chipperfield's always-at-hand 'Butler' stand.
