The Little Haiti Cultural Center and Max Pierre hosted a pizza party and screening of Ruth Burotte – SOLO but not alone, a short film chronicling 23-year-old Haitian-born artist Ruth Burotte. The painter also displayed her first solo show at SwampSpace, an experimental art space located on the outskirts of Miami Design District.
The film’s plot follows Burotte’s process and cultural inspirations, introducing to viewers the people who have helped and mentored her on her artistic journey. Local Miami art personalities featured include Oliver Sanchez of SwampSpace, JP Sanchez of Miami Art Society, Dominique Denis of Broward Cultural Division, Alisa Pitchenik Charles of the New World School of the Arts and ABSTRK, who is a street artist. The film was directed by Aaron Glickman and executive produced by Stephanie Ansin.
The screening accompanied the grand opening celebration of Simply Good Pizza by Max Pierre, a Haitian entrepreneur dedicated to telling the stories of the Haitian diaspora. His pizza stand is located in the cultural center’s bazaar.
