Join us for a conversation between Miami-based artist Odalis Valdivieso and Berlin-based writer, curator and researcher, Federica Bueti discussing Valdivieso’s current exhibition Arrhythmic Suite on view at the museum. An accompanying publication containing images of the artists work, an essay written by Federica Bueti and designed by Kristin Metho, will be released later this month.

Arrhythmic Suite unites four bodies of work: fifty inks on paper, six watercolors, six photocopies, and two c-prints. It was conceived by Odalis Valdivieso’s month-long residency in Berlin, Germany in the summer of 2014 establishing a dialog between a sense of place and her own practice, with place serving as a catalyst for the formation of investigation.
