Pablo Cano at The Bakehouse
See Pablo Cano’s Musical Marionettes, an ingenious theatrical performance, at The Bakehouse Art Complex on Saturday, February 2, at 2 p.m. Sure to captivate young and old and everyone in between, Pablo’s whimsical marionettes are equally charming sitting quietly on display or performing in all their glory. At Saturday’s performance, you’ll have the pleasure of experiencing both!
With influences from the Dada and Fluxus movements, Cuban-born artist Pablo Cano uniquely forms fragments of inconsequential found objects that come to life through music and choreography in his theatrical performances. His annual exhibitions and holiday performances at North Miami’s Museum of Contemporary Art are legendary, and he just celebrated his tenth consecutive year at the museum. Collected internationally, Cano’s work has been displayed at prestigious institutions including the FIU-Wolfsonian, Lowe Art Museum, Bass Museum of Art, Museum of Art in Fort Lauderdale, the Cintas Foundation in New York City, the Columbus Museum of Art in Georgia, and the Minneapolis Institute of Art.
His exhibition at The Bakehouse Art Complex, entitled “Pablo Cano at Wynwood,” is his first exhibition in the burgeoning Wynwood Arts District. It showcases not only his distinctive marionettes, but also his versatile works in oil painting, mixed media, sculpture and fine ink drawings. The exhibition closes February 3.
The February 2 performance will be the last opportunity to view this incredible exhibit. Tickets for the show are $5 for general admission and free for children 5 and under. Take this opportunity to join as a member of The Bakehouse ($45) and receive an autographed catalog from the exhibit.
