International Biennale Miami

Today Thursday, June 6th, 2013 at 7PM, the City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado along with the Chairman of the Miami Arts & Entertainment Council Mercedes Cisneros will formally inaugurate the 7-day contemporary exhibition entitled “International Biennale Artists Exhibition Miami, IBAEM” at the Upper East Side's Miami Iron Side.


This second edition of IBAEM is produced by a new marketing company based in Miami “The Art Marketing Mind, LLC” owned by Maria Napoles and Tata Fernandez, a creative duo that direct their business to emerging and mid-career artists that don’t have gallery representation in South Florida.

Their first experience showcasing a whole gamut of international artists was at LMNT in Wynwood during the first edition of IBAEM that took place last year in June.

The International Biennale Artists Exhibition was an idea conceived by Elisha Ben Yitzhak who in 2009, as one of the 77 U.S. participating artists at the Florence Biennale, decided to create a group that would establish a dialogue among artists making arrangements for group exhibitions around the world.

The Art Marketing Mind saw an opportunity to use Miami and promote the city, venue, exhibition and blog with an international show that encompasses 79 artists from 19 countries.

Knowing the difference between what a biennale stands for, the organizers of this show took advantage for marketing purposes of the 1930's concept that implies a large art exhibition usually held biennially, but in this case it would showcase mostly emerging art.

This second edition of IBAEM will have a new visual experience with a multiple installation set by Miami-based artist and eco-fashion designer Luis Valenzuela, IBAEM’s Creative Director.

“For this edition, we asked Valenzuela to bring his artsy concept by maximizing the artistic surfaces of the venue with contemporary art installations by invited artists,” said Maria Napoles, President of the Art Marketing Mind.

Valenzuela will create his innovative “Artistic Surfaces” throughout the two-story 10,000 square feet complex and will present a unique and distinctive performance installation as well.

“I will be the only male artist showcasing an art installation with the pieces for the 'art to wear' fashion performance inspired by Marie Antoinette in which I will be exalting the extravagant aspects of this French queen executed during the French Revolution,” said Luis Valenzuela.
Other artists presenting installations are Colombian-born Alicia H. Torres with “Recycling Path to the Future,” Peruvian-born Anica Shpilberg with “The Clones,” Mexican-born Araceli Salcedo with “Tradiciones,” and U.S. artist Stephanie Bloom with “What is the use of a house?”

The theme IBAEM 2013 was centered in the “Coexistence of Traditional and Modern Values in Contemporary Society,” a broad exhibition subject that was selected by Vero-Beach curator Silvia Medina.

“As we all live in society and coexist with nature, people and with the public environment, this theme selection allowed artists to present their own perspectives on this ample proposition,” said Silvia Medina.
IBAEM 2013 will have other art-related events that are included as part of this 7-day mega-show. A VIP Preview by invitation only is scheduled today at 6PM for IBAEM’s Invited Guest Artist, Chilean-born Jose Garcia Chibarro.

“Two additional events will be as important as the formal inauguration,” said Tata Fernandez, VP Art Marketing Mind, “one is the IBAEM Auction that will take place on Thursday June 13th and the Campus Collective event at Miami Iron Side on Tuesday June 11th.”
