We all know about Art Week, when thousands descend upon Art Basel and the other international art fairs and galleries dotted around the county. But really, every week in Miami is art week – with a wide range of year-round activities to satiate the appetite of even the choosiest connoisseur.
The latest case in point: a series of conversations exploring the intersection of art and technology at Oolite Arts. Kelani Nichole is Oolite Arts’ first Digital Arts Fellow and oversees Oolite Arts’ new Media Art Lab. She explained that there is more need for this multidisciplinary exploration than ever.
“We’re in a real cultural crisis moment where certain technologies have accelerated so fast that culture at large can’t really understand and parse them,” Nichole told Refresh Miami. “That’s what great art does: it helps us understand our current moment, and parse all of the complexities of our life.”
