L’éléphant dans la Salle–  (The Elephant in the Room) is an idiom for an obvious truth that is either being ignored, or otherwise unaddressed. The purpose of this exhibit is to provide a safe  place for issues and topics that are normally hidden from public view. Through visual and performance art, the artists participating in this event  will share secrets and taboos, discussing openly to find solutions for our own individual and collective emancipation. Viewers are invited to enter the ‘Confessional’,  an interactive safe space installation to share their ‘elephant’.

L’elephant dans La Salle will be hosted by 2 of 1310 Gallery resident artist Niki Lopez (visual artist & designer), and Alana DaCosta, (singer/songwriter).

Resilience: Survive. Grow. Thrive. – Exhibit opening

Posted on 13 May 2014 by Niki lopez

Interactive arts event brings Resilience to Foster Care Youth 


Artists:
Andrew Innerarity

Dennica Pearl Worrell

Collaborators:

Cameras For Kids Foundation
Voices for Children of Broward County
Prizm Art Fair
Supreme Esteem, Inc.

FORT LAUDERDALE – When you ask Neri Street, a community advocate and public speaker, what the word “resilience” means, she lights up. “It’s the concept that will make our community sustainable, address changing job markets, and how we teach the next generation of youth,” she says. “Innovation lights a spark, but resilience keeps the fire burning.”

On Saturday, May 17, Street curates an interactive arts and storytelling experience designed to immerse the audience into Resillence. That is the theme of 1310 Gallery’s 6th Annual May Arts Extravaganza. Every May since 2009, Street has collaborated with artists to raise awareness for causes supporting children and families. e.

“Resilience is critical for everyone, even for people whose lifestyle appears to be easy,” says Andrew Innerarity, an internationally acclaimed photojournalist whose work will be displayed at the event. “No one gets a completely easy path.”

That night, the event will feature 2-dimensional artists pushing the envelope on their work, and inspired performance. It will also feature short films (comedy, drama and experimental) on resilience, and the audience may choose to participate in “An Exercise in Resilience”. A portion of proceeds from any sales that evening supports Cameras for Kids, an innovative program that builds resilience in Broward’s foster care teens.

Betsey Chesler launched Cameras for Kids after volunteering with orphanages in South Africa. She saw how empowered vulnerable teens were behind a camera, and saw the same needs right here at home. Her program is now across the US and Canada. Funds go towards purchasing a basic point and shoot camera, memory cards, photography printing, framing, and shooting trips. “Photography opens a door that allows the kids to see their own potential,” says Chesler, “and it gives them an innovative skill set.”

Cameras for Kids works locally in partnership with Voices for Children and HANDY (Helping Abused Neglected Disadvantaged Youth), but they need community investment to continue. Street and Chesler have come together to raise the funds to sustain the program. The teens’ photography, and other select pieces at the event, will be on sale to support the program—which gives the youth a direct experience in entrepreneurship.

Culture Clash: Art, Fashion & Aliens July 21

Posted on 19 July 2012 by Niki lopez

Niki Art Studio & Circa24 presents:

Culture Clash

Artists transform cultural expectations with unexpected art

at 1310 Gallery: 1310 SW 2nd Court, Fort Lauderdale FL 33312 – map

Culture Clash by Niki Art Studio & Circa 24
Facebook RSVP here

Culture Clash explores how modern influences affect our perspective of unexplored truths and ancient tradition. Art, fashion and aliens. What else do you need?“ Culture Clash gives us a platform to bring diverse groups together and cultivate positive energy,” says Lopez. “I have a different way of approaching art shows and pick art that reflects the vibrancy and energetic aesthetics not always seen in galleries.”

  • Niki Lopez
  • Greg Gibbs
  • Greg Dubois

Lopez (Artist & Designer) is also known for exploring the concept of “alien” in her work. To her, alien isn’t just about the cosmos. “We’re all aliens in some way, not just feeling out of place in this new economy, but being transplanted in new surroundings and having new frames of mind. At our root, our ancient knowledge is alien to us, and it’s my job to help people rediscover it.”

Her co-curator, Asanyah Davidson, creative director of the apparel company Circa24 LLC, found a synergy with Lopez’s mission. Her fashion line is described as fierce sophistication, and she’ll reveal her new Grace Jones-inspired evening line on opening night. Opening night performances include: Fashion show by Adjanie and Circa 24; music by DJ Onestar and DJ Lerue; and live performance by Atlanta’s Profound Breadth (who has opened for artists including Flo Rida, B.o.B., Ludacris, New Boyz, Gorilla Zoe, and Bubba Sparxxx.) and Dana DellaCamera of Nakedown

Ask anyone who knows Niki Lopez and the first word they use to describe her is “community”. A founding member of the 1310 Gallery in Downtown Fort Lauderdale, her studio is a meeting place for church pastors, youth workers, LGBT activists, artists, entrepreneurs, singers, poets, and folks just looking to have a good time. Saturday, July 21, she brings all those interests together in “Culture Clash”, the 4th show she has curated at 1310 Gallery.
Lopez (Artist & Designer) is also known for exploring the concept of “alien” in her work. To her, alien isn’t just about the cosmos. “We’re all aliens in some way, not just feeling out of place in this new economy, but being transplanted in new surroundings and having new frames of mind. At our root, our ancient knowledge is alien to us, and it’s my job to help people rediscover it.”
Davidson also teaches fashion design, and encourages her students to be leaders in the field. “Fashion is a vehicle to communicate culture and change a person’s perspective about themselves,” says Davidson. “Sometimes expressing culture leaves people feeling alien from the collective, but being apart also means standing out.”

About the curators: Niki Lopez is a multi-disciplinary visual artist, graphic designer, and art teacher. Her often ‘other-worldly’ art has been featured in local and national publications, as well as exhibited across South Florida. She is an Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Alumni, member of the Broward Arts Guild, and Artspace’s Sailboat Bend Artists Lofts.

Asanyah Davidson is a Fashion Designer born in Clarendon, Jamaica, is owner of Circa24 LLC. as well as Adjunct professor at Ai Miami (Fashion Dept) and Broward College (Continuing Education Dept). Circa24 promises the convergence of simplicity, lush-sophistication and feminine lines that deliver distinction and command attention.

Although this creative enclave has transitioned through a flux-housing both prestigious and emerging local artists since their 2008 inauguration, this exhibition will be proudly featuring the wide-scope of talent nestled there.

  • Phillip Curtis

The visiting audience can also share their “love” by contributing non-perishable food items in a drive for LifeNet4Families (formerly The Cooperative Feeding Program). With any three or more canned/boxed food items donated, each contributor will receive a raffle ticket for an opportunity to score original artwork from one of the generous artists-in-residence.

The artists at Sailboat Bend form a community located in downtown Fort Lauderdale through Artspace. The various disciplines and media include painters, photographers, writers, poets, sculptors, dancers, musicians, actors, graphic designers and non-profit organizations. Since 2008, the gallery has hosted monthly art exhibits, workshops, open studios, live performances, film screenings, and book readings-with over 48 events hosted in 2011 alone.
1310 Gallery is open by appointment in addition to the event times. For further information, please call 305-975-6262.

The Open House listed on Sunday, February 26th will be in conjunction with the Sounds on the Bend free live music concert and the Sailboat Bend Civic Association’s Walking Tour. For more information please visit:
