News from Faena District in Miami Beach, where the Biennale of Moving Images (BIM) will be presented this year, for the first time in North America, beginning April 13th.

Originally created for The Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève, under the artistic direction of Andrea Bellini in collaboration with Cecilia Alemani, Caroline Bourgeois and Elvira Dyangani Ose, the Biennale of Moving Images is a one-of-a-kind hybrid event that brings together visual artists, film directors and performers.  This marks the 15thedition of the Biennale of Moving Images and the first time it will be presented in the United States. Comprising a wide array of multimedia installations, films and documentaries as well as performances, it is situated somewhere between a cinema festival, a constellation of solo video installations, one-night only performances and a site for research and experimentations.  All works presented are new, having been commissioned specifically for the event in 2016 in response to the current sociopolitical climate and as such are representative of the most innovative works in contemporary video and film production today.

A selection of the highlights from the biennial will be installed in non-traditional spaces in the Faena District and will be free and open to the public during exhibition hours.  The installations will be accompanied by open-air screenings in the courtyard of Faena Bazaar, which additionally will be free and open to the public.

The exhibition will be presented from April 13th – 30th, open from 3:00 pm – 9:00 pm, Wednesdays through Sundays.
