solista is a collection of solo performances integrated into the landscape of the Pinta Miami art fair. Confronting the viewer with these interventions close-up provides an opportunity to consider the contained universe of the live act. From the panorama of isolation created by the living images of Camila Cañeque’s work to the densely woven soundscapes and poetry of cellist Shanti Lalita and the intensely physical performances of pianist Vicky Chow, the projects in solista make starkly visible the intricacies of ordinarily solitary endeavor.

Tuesday, December 4, 6–8PM

Camila Cañeque, I’ll wait in the car
A performance consisting of a long wait inside a car in the fair’s parking lot, suggesting an absurdist form of passive resistance.

Shanti Lalita, PM
PM
is named for the “post-María” condition in Puerto Rico, and for the artist’s affinity for a nocturnal creative schedule. It mixes spoken word, live looping, and narrative soundscapes.

Camila Cañeque, Sunless Beach
A work that imagines a world where there is no longer a star called the sun; it's not the sun but a sun, or just some light.

Wednesday, December 5, 6–9PM

Rolando Peña, The Seven Vanishing Points
A recreation of the last performance by the groundbreaking 1960s collective The Foundation for the Totality by one of its founding members. Mylar, projected animation, and a 55-gallon drum are used by the performer in a public confrontation of the ego.
