Pecha Kucha Miami celebrates six local visual and multimedia artists selected to participate in Miami’s s first live/work artist residency program scheduled to open in the Downtown Arts and Entertainment District this spring.
The highly competitive LegalArt Live/Work Residency is Miami’s first subsidized live/work, professional development, and community-building artists’ facility. Designed as an incubator, artists in residence live and work in private 900 square foot studios and have access to exhibition, lecture, legal counseling spaces and a comprehensive resource library.
The residency brings together some of Miami’s most promising artists, along with national and international artists and curators; allowing them to collaborate in ways only a residential model can offer. Visiting curators and scholars will engage both with resident artists—by mentoring, leading critiques and exploring exhibition opportunities beyond Miami—and the public through lectures, workshops and exhibitions.
