Haitian-born Artist To Display Works At The Art and Culture Center of Hollywood

HOLLYWOOD – The exhibitions “Adler Guerrier: Out to Lunch” and “Josafat Miranda: Sacred Flight” open on Saturday, Feb. 27, 2010 at the Art and Culture Center of Hollywood. Both artists’ work along with that of Balbone Martinez and Doug Crocco will be shown through Sunday, May 23, 2010. Adler Guerrier and Josafat Miranda’s exhibitions are funded in part by grants from Funding Arts Broward.

Haitian-born, Miami-based contemporary artist Adler Guerrier will present a site-specific exhibition that explores the effects of geography, politics and history on Hollywood, Florida, and nearby environs. The multi-dimensional exhibition includes a variety of media, including photography, drawings, sculpture and video to express a “psycho-geographic” narrative of a distinctive landscape.

Alongside Guerrier, Miranda’s work begins with the basic principle of drawing with extreme precision and detail, then incorporating different materials such as graphite, silver and gold leaf, acrylic, and the ancient technique of encaustic. His installations are representational of many of his paintings and give a feeling of movement and performance.
