Things To Do This Week: 01.12.2015


Beverly Hills John, 2012

The last time we saw John Waters, he was at the Miami Book Fair shocking audiences with terms like "anal-lingus." He's back at it with a new show Beverly Hills John, of painting and sculptures, at the Marianne Boesky Gallery. His goal: to make you laugh uncomfortably and uncontrollably while he satirizes the film, art, and literature industries. Everyone's a target and nothing is sacred, as you can see in the work above where Waters Photoshopped himself with an extreme face-lift in Beverly Hills John, 2012.

Kate Gilmore, Wall Bearer, 2011 (David Castillo)

Virginia Woolf's 1929 feminist essay, "A Room of One's Own" is at the core of Making Space: Beyond a Room, a multi-media exhibition that examines the creative avenues available to female artists. Teresa Diehl, Tracey Emin, and Kate Gilmore (shown above) are among the local and international artists presented in this discussion of women's creative practices.

Have you met our own of batch of feminists, who presented Literally Bye at The Standard, Miami during Art Basel? [NSFW]
