MPAC PRESENTS CARS & FISH – A
ONE-TIME-ONLY DIGITAL ART INSTALLATION – DECEMBER
It’s a free show. It’s
a work of art. It’s Cars & Fish!
Miami Performing Arts Center presents Cars
& Fish – a huge video and sound installation commissioned
by MPAC and presented one time only on Friday, December
The first large-scale event produced on
the grounds of Miami Performing Arts Center
Multimedia expert/video artist Charles Recher
and master composer Gustavo Matamoros have been commissioned
by Miami Performing Arts Center to create and present Cars
& Fish - a massive site-specific work of digital art
that will inaugurate the Plaza for the Arts at MPAC during
Art Basel. For the one-time-only video and sound installation,
Recher will project digital images onto the granite facades
of the MPAC theaters, transforming them into a dazzling
canvas celebrating Miami’s colorful culture. The public
watching the show will also become part of Recher’s
moving light sculpture. Matamoros will simultaneously create
a synchronized interactive soundscape which incorporates
the acoustics of the exterior architecture and a myriad
of sounds from around the city, such as cruise ship horns
and crashing waves.
The free outdoor event also features a colorful
parade of youthful stilt walkers dressed as “Creatures
of the Swamp” and a giant 35-foot “Alligator
Schmalligator” created by Clifton Childree. Cars &
Fish will be the culminating performance for the children
who are students of “Walking Tall,” MPAC’s
community outreach program of free after-school training
sessions designed to develop physical theater skills, encourage
creativity, and boost self-confidence in children.
A “hypersonic flock” of street
performers will also roam the Plaza for the Arts and interact
with the crowd at the colorful public event, which is funded
in part by the City of Miami Community Redevelopment Agency
and the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs.
