Homeless is a site-specific project space that will take place in Axel Void’s house in Miami, Florida, United States. The aim is to create quality shows outside of the conventional art scene, cutting the middlemen, galleries or institutions. Favoring the direct dialogue from the artist to the public.
For this second edition of Homeless, Void Projects proposes a show and residency formed by local, national and international, classical painters. As well as live music, gastronomy and installations.
The works will be presented with in a quotidian home environment. It is a old house built in the 1920's situated in North Miami just outside of the wall that divides Miami Shores, a upper class neighborhood from a working class area of unincorporated Miami-Dade.
The concept of this collective show is to talk about the idea of a home from a political, social or personal viewpoint. Addressing this idea based on cultural heritage, identity and patriotism.
This years edition focuses on classical painting, which serves as bridge to talk about tradition and its purpose or influence in society.
In a young country like the United States that is composed by different cultures and nationalities who have set base here, and in light of the current political situation. This project is pertinent to a brooder sense of commonality as well as a more introspective view of shelter and community.
Void Projects is also proud to collaborate this year with Juxtapoz for their annual Clubhouse event. Artists reflect on their experiences of time spent in Miami through a series of original works and on site installations.
