A Performance Reading by Avi Hoffman of Address Unknown – March 30th

Hosted by Next Generations, Actor & Jewish Culture Activist Avi Hoffman and adjunct professor of theatre at Florida Atlantic University, Lynn University, and Broward College, Bruce Linser will perform a reading of Address Unknown by Katherina Kressman Taylor, the story of a friendship between a San Francisco-based Jewish art dealer and his former business partner, who has returned to Germany as the Nazi Party comes to power. As these dear friends become ideological enemies, one commits a cowardly betrayal while the other plots an ingenious – and deadly – revenge. The play demonstrates how the seeds of prejudice take root in an atmosphere of hatred. This performance is part of Avi Hoffman’s 2017 Yiddishkayt Initiative programming which focuses on education, entertainment, tolerance, and Holocaust awareness.

Gary Nader Art Centre Presents “Territorios” by Claudio Tozzi – March 2nd thru April 2nd

Gary Nader Art Centre is proud to present an exhibition by Brazilian contemporary master Claudio Tozzi. The exhibition “Territorios” will feature Tozzi’s most recent work and will be on view from March 2nd through April 2nd at the Gary Nader Art Centre in Wynwood.

Born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Claudio Tozzi initiated his career as an artist in the early ‘60s, with the appropriation of objects, images taken from newspapers, comics and photos associated with social issues through symbolic connotations. In the ‘70s, he created a new syntax through the construction of a thread of reticules and chromatic granulations that led to structures and spaces full of intense symbolic meanings. From the ‘80s until his more recent works, he intensified his formal concerns and started to work with basic structural elements such as lines, planes, colors and organic forms and materials that create formal analogies with pre-existing images and enlarge their constructive characteristics.

Admission: Free
Monday – Saturday: 10:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
