PRESS INFO: MOVING FORWARD
Dot Fiftyone gallery proudly announces the moving into its new building .
Dot Fiftyone gallery is a Miami based gallery focused in contemporary emerging art. Founded in 2003 by Alfredo Guzman and Isaac Perelman, the gallery aims to be a production laboratory for contemporary art as well as an exhibition space. Dot Fiftyone¹s objective is to create a conduit between the artists and the community local and global, by generating a flexible and mobile structure accessible to all.
For the past 10 years, the gallery established its reputation as leaders in emerging artists, as well as a pioneer in developing the Wynwood Art District.
The gallery strives to erase the gap between geographically diverse cultures, as the directors believe these boundaries do not exist in the artists’ intentions.
Today, Dot Fiftyone (Perelman and Guzman)Gallery is looking forward to entering a new phase, as we move to a different location, with a novel vision of what Dot Fiftyone represents.
The space is located in the heart of Wynwood (187 NW 27th Street, on the intersection of NW 2nd Street). The gallery now has 3500 square feet of available space, to include a project and video room, with 15 feet high ceilings; in addition, it provides private parking. We will also, be launching our updated website.
Currently, the gallery is limiting its operational abilities to the needs of our loyal collectors and friends,and we are looking forward to be open to the general public in March 2013.
Dot Fiftyone Gallery new address:
187 NW 27th street, Wynwood Arts District - Miami Fl 33127
Further information regarding the new location of Dot Fiftyone Gallery and its artists, is available by calling (305) 573-9994, via e-mail to Isaac@dotfiftyone.com
We are working on the new web of Dot Fiftyone Gallery. This is just a preview’s shot of how it will look. In the upcoming weeks, the new web will be on.
By Nina Dotti
March 14 – April 30, 2013
Opening Reception, Thursday, March 14, 2013.
Nina Dotti (B.1968) is a Venezuelan artist who lives and works in Miami, Florida. She has a Bachelor’s in Museum Studies and Art History from Jose Maria Vargas University in Caracas. Dotti also specialized in photography at Roberto Mata School and went to the Art Student League of NY for sculpture and drawing. Galerie 13 Jeanette Mariani in Paris has represented her since 2006. Exhibitions include Paris, New York, Miami, Buenos Aires, Caracas, Berlin, Basel, and Shanghai among others. Her main focus is performance, installation, video and photography.
Nina’s inspiration derives from social clichés attached to women and female behavior in general. Defined as a new media contemporary artist and a “pluralized woman” by French critic Frederic Charles Baitinger, Nina attempts to evoke through her work, women’s role in the XXI century.
“Tipping Point” is her fourth solo show. This body of work is made up of photographs, sculptural objects and fixtures of golden tones that attempt to convey a statement on the balance between being, feeling, thinking and doing that we all desire to achieve.
Dot Fiftyone Gallery participating in VOLTA NY 2013, presenting Muro Giaconi’s project: “Ruin is Abstraction”.
VOLTA NY is an invitational show of solo artists’ projects and is the American incarnation of the successful young fair founded in Basel in 2005. VOLTA NY was conceived by art critic and fair director Amanda Coulsonto continue the original mandate of a tightly-focused, boutique event that is a place for discovery. Both Basel and New York fairs provide a showcase for current art production and relevant contemporary positions regardless of the artist or gallery’s age.
By putting the focus back on artists through exclusively featuring solo projects, VOLTA NY promotes a deep exploration of the work of its selected projects, an opportunity for discoveries that move beyond those afforded by a traditional art fair. While many fairs provide a broader overview, with more represented artists in each booth, visitors to VOLTA NY compare the experience to a more focused series of intense studio visits.
A platform for challenging, often complementary, sometimes competing ideas about contemporary art, the strictly solo format is what gives the New York fair its unique character.
Ruin is ABSTRACTION
Ruin is abstraction is a proposed study of drawing that researches in a confined space (12 square meters) landscape, and space in a poetic state proposing the juxtaposition of two contradictory spatial states: closure and release.
The focus of the project will be framed by a study of drawings that I’m currently developing and are mainly part of the idea of expanded drawing, drawing far from the traditional format, which is projected as a transformer and generator of spaces and thoughts.
In a state of decay, insecurity and tension of the landscape, space, embraces and envelops the viewer to walk or dwell in a place to be aware of the precariousness of the surrounding environment.
From the drawing processes in which the image is built and destroyed from successive layers of drawing and blurring (The drawing is done with graphite, and the blurring is generated from gestural strokes of eraser, electric sander, diluent and different corrosive materials) is constructed, and in turn destroys the image, the representation, the gesture.

Dot Fiftyone gallery is participating again in PINTA NY 2012, (The Modern and Contemporary Latin American Show) November 15 - 18, 2012, presenting a solo exhibition by Jose Luis Landet.
About Jose Luis Landet:
The works by Landet are characterized by their simplicity and masterful use of color, simple forms that the artist breaks down and rebuilds in an act of creation and destruction that functions as an analogy for memory and oblivion. Notions such as cutting, fragmenting, recomposing, serializing, and reiterating are some of the core concepts Landet employed in his inquiry into the intricacies of memory. His works are reconstructed canvases. Once the artist finishes his work, he then proceeds to cut the canvas into identical portions; these will be combined with fragments from other canvases to create an entirely new work. Once reconstructed on the wall as a result of meticulous recomposition, this new piece emerges as a sort of visual grid of graceful and alternating rhythms.
About Pinta NY:
PINTA is a unique event exhibiting annually for sale through the participating galleries the best of Latin American art, coinciding with Christie¹s and Sotheby¹s Latin American art auctions and with important exhibitions in museums and cultural institutions in New York City. The fair organizers have invited the most prestigious galleries from the United States, Latin America and Europe to participate in this event. Thus, PINTA will be an exclusive fair which will include the participation of fifty select art galleries showing museum-quality works representative of abstract, concrete, neo-concrete, kinetic and conceptual art, as well as of other contemporary art movements.
GONZALO FUENMAYOR AWARDED TRAVELING FELLOWSHIP FROM THE MUSEUM OF FINE ARTS, BOSTON
Gonzalo Fuenmayor, Colombian artist residing in Miami, has been awarded a Traveling Fellowship by The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. A jury comprised of Ambreen Butt, Boston-based artist; Katherine French, Director of the Danforth Museum of Art and Anthony Greaney, gallery owner, awarded 10 fellowships from a pool of 134 alumni applicants.
Throughout its long and distinguished history, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (SMFA), has been fortunate to be the beneficiary of bequests designed to support student work. None has been as important or as enduring as the Traveling Fellowships, which were created in 1894 to encourage post-graduate work and travel. While the selection criteria have changed through the years, the awards have consistently provided support to launch individual careers through independent work, travel and exhibition opportunities.
Fuenmayor’s proposal featured Leticia, Colombia, as his destination. The city is located in the epicenter of the Amazon, making it an enticing and exciting place to further explore ideas of dislocation, exoticism and hybridity, which have been paramount in his current work.
The 10 recipients have approximately one year to complete their travels. At the conclusion of those travels, their works will be reviewed again and one artist from this distinguished group will be selected for a solo presentation at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, to be held in the spring of 2015.
Complementing this unique opportunity, Fuenmayor has also been selected as an Artist-in-Residence at the Bemis Center in Omaha, Nebraska for 2014. 723 artists from around the world applied for just 18 spaces. The Bemis Center provides a private live/work studio, a monthly stipend and 3 months to concentrate on artist’s creative practice. More info at www.bemiscenter.org
About the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston: Founded in 1876 and accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design, the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston (SMFA), is one of only three art schools in the country affiliated with a major museum—the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.

Through an extraordinary public/private partnership with Broward County, Young At Art Museum is proud to present its new 55,000 square-foot, Gold LEED-certified permanent facility. The new YAA is a project of social inventiveness for families. The new museum has been envisioned as the first art museum experience for children – nurturing the child from birth through teens and into adulthood – creating a no-fail, arts-based learning environment that will transform the way children embrace the arts, become tomorrow’s patrons of the arts and develop into future advocates and supporters of the arts.
Years of extensive planning have gone into the visualization of the new Young At Art Museum. Experts from some of the nation’s finest museums including The Getty, Museum of Modern Art in New York, Noguchi Museum, Museum for African Art, Chicago Children’s Museum and Brooklyn Museum of Art convened in a symposium to inform the content and context of our Exhibit Master Plan. Parents, educators, artists, cultural groups, children and teens from across South Florida contributed their insights as well. A nationwide search for architects and exhibit designers resulted in the selection of an exceptional design team – AECOM of Miami and Glavovic Studios of Fort Lauderdale as architects; Architecture Is Fun of Chicago as exhibit designer; Redbox Workshop of Chicago as exhibit fabricator.
The new YAA is a place where families can gather; where children can build a sense of identity through art, architecture, history and culture; where artists can teach their aesthetics; where teachers can develop new art-integrated classroom skills; and where teens can expand their potential, whether through CD production in our Teen Center’s recording studio or through volunteer opportunities throughout the museum.
The new YAA embraces art reflective of the cultural diversity of South Florida, enabling children and adults of diverse ethnicities to build bridges of understanding. Through art children will discover themselves and their role in society.
Above all, children and teens, adults and seniors, teachers and students will have fun – exploring, experiencing, discovering and learning by creating art that explores our diverse and complicated world and helps us understand the broad range of human experience.
El YAA (por sus siglas en inglés) tiene cuatro galerías permanentes: ArtScapes, CultureScapes, GreenScapes y WonderScapes. La primera sala es una aventura a través de los más de 5,000 años de creación visual. La segunda, CultureScapes, está dedicada a celebrar la diversidad cultural. Aquí el público tiene la oportunidad de experimentar e incursionar en los magníficos universos creados por artistas de disímiles procedencias culturales. Son ellos Edouard Duval Carrié (Haití), Leonel Matheu (Cuba), Chisseko Kondowe (África), Kenichi Yokono (Japón) y Pedro Zepeda (artista seminole).
La sala creada por Leonel Matheu se basa en la idea errante de la nación cubana. Las estaciones y las estrellas sirven como referencia a la búsqueda de asideros -de hecho, los niños pueden hurgar en las puertas y gavetas que encierran cada uno de los paisajes. Lo mismo ocurre con el personaje central, una media cabeza que a modo de iglú, descansa en el suelo. Una vez dentro, los niños pueden descubrir toda la imaginación y los recuerdos que atesora el personaje en su interior.
Por su lado, la intervención de Edouard Duval Carrié se basa en el imaginario haitiano, creando interesantes calados de juegos de luz y sombra con personajes propios de la cultura popular creole.
