The FIU College of Architecture + The Arts has partnered with Helmut Schuster (owner of Gallery Schuster in Berlin, Miami, and Potsdam), Jeff Lawson of UNTITLED Art Fair, and Avra Jain, preservationist and developer of The Vagabond Hotel to provide a four-part, community-based lecture series called FIU UNTITLED ART TALKS. The first very successful talk occurred at the Vagabond Hotel on Monday, August 18th, 2014 and featured speaker Terry Riley, architect, former Director of the Miami Art Museum and Philip Johnson Chief Curator of The Museum of Modern Art. The event gathered more than 300 arts patrons at the recently renovated, prime example of Mid-Century Miami Modern architecture.
Dean Brian Schriner of The FIU College of Architecture + The Arts created the ART TALKS as part of the CARTA 2020 vision, which emphasizes the College’s creativity and innovation, as well as its connections to the local community and the Arts Community. We welcome your attendance, as the series will continue with a talk at the Bakehouse Art Complex on October 20th and with another at C1 Bank in Wynwood on November 17th. During December’s Art Basel-Miami Beach week, the FIU UNTITLED ART TALKS will culminate in a CARTA exhibition, curated by Helmut Schuster, at UNTITLED Art fair.
