a vacant lot in Miami
LOT was a process-driven and research-based project located in Miami's Little Haiti neighborhood. Developed over two years and culminating in a weekend of events, the project highlighted a residential vacant lot as a point of departure for a considered, complex and creative investigation of current trends in development, land use, speculation, space, and power. Co-curated by Erin Elder and Felecia Carlisle, the project aimed to address the dynamics of rapidly changing neighborhoods through live fieldwork, creative on-site togetherness and temporary artistic interventions.
Artists involved: Alberto Aguilar with Alex Bradley Cohen, Archival Feedback, Marcus Blake, David Bulit, Felecia Chizuko Carlisle, Fictilis, Dr. Kevin Grove, Catherine Hollingsworth, Lori Kelly, and Rob Ray.
Support for LOT was provided by Cannonball through its WaveMaker Grants program, which is part of the Andy Warhol Foundation’s Regional Regranting Program. WaveMaker Grants is supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs. Emerson Dorsch Gallery was the lead sponsor.
