Jazz Legends at the Ali Exhibition 12:00 am | Ali Cultural Arts
Jazz Legends at the Ali Exhibition

Jazz Legends at the Ali is an exhibition that showcases historic photos of jazz legends curated from the open domain photographs from the William P. Gottlieb Collection from the Library of Congress. Gottlieb’s “Golden Age of Jazz” publication is an acclaimed documentation of American Culture in Washington D.C. and New York City from 1938 to 1948, a time where jazz music thrived, featuring photographs of jazz musicians such as Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Earl Hines, Thelonious Monk, Stan Kenton, Ray McKinley, Benny Goodman, Coleman Hawkins, Ella Fitzgerald, and Benny Carter.

Showcasing this exhibition at The Ali Cultural Center is especially significant for the Pompano Beach community as popular oral history states that renowned jazz legends such as Louis Armstrong, Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington stayed with Mr. and Mrs. Ali when they were booked to perform in Miami Beach.

While there is no photographic evidence of these visits, the folklore is widely accepted, and with this exhibition, these legends are brought back to be honored and celebrated.

About William P. Gottlieb

"The collection consists of jazz photographs taken by writer-photographer William P. Gottlieb, from 1938 to 1948, the "Golden Age of Jazz" when swing reached its peak and modern jazz developed. While on assignment for the Washington Post, Down Beat magazine, and Record Changer, Gottlieb photographed and interviewed jazz pioneers primarily in Washington, D.C., and New York City. A skilled craftsman, the self-taught photographer captured the personalities of jazz musicians in a sensitive, storytelling manner. The collection is an important contribution to the documentation of American culture during a time when jazz music thrived. Gottlieb's photographs are perhaps the most widely reproduced images of jazz musicians, such as Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Charlie Parker, Billie Holiday, Dizzy Gillespie, Earl Hines, Thelonious Monk, Stan Kenton, Ray McKinley, Benny Goodman, Coleman Hawkins, Ella Fitzgerald, and Benny Carter." ~From the collection of the Library of Congress.

The Edge of Seventeen 12:00 am | Bailey Contemporary Arts
The Edge of Seventeen

This exhibition celebrates a decade of introspective work by Jordan Guzman. As her artistic processes are taking her in new direction, the work at The Edge of Seventeen, provides us a glimpse of her life after a moment of epiphany.

“In January 2008, at seventeen years of age, an internal light switch was turned on and the question was asked of the person standing in the mirror looking back at me: Who are you? Out of this awakening came an outpour of poems and paintings expressing more than teenage angst. Displayed before you are tactile, visual journal entries documenting the subsequent decade of spiritual self-discovery that followed that fated 2008 epiphany. My hope is that as you meditate on my work you will contemplate the delicate, yet profound connections made between family, upbringing, home, and the self.” ~ Jordan Guzman

Art Talk with Jordan Guzman

Join us for a Virtual Artist Talk with Jordan Guzman, hosted by the Pompano Beach Arts Consulting Curator Juliana Forero. Jordan digs into her exhibition, "The Edge of 17", and the meaning behind that title and her work.

About Jordan Guzman

Jordan Guzman was born in Kissimmee, FL and currently resides in Pompano Beach, FL. Her parents immigrated to New York from Central and South America in the 80's. Upon their arrival, her father, a spiritual seeker started his own commercial painting company, and her mother became an early childhood educator. They maintained these vocations since before Jordan was born and this has deeply inspired her to become an artist and an early childhood art educator. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Central Florida and is the Art Curriculum Coordinator at BB International School of the Arts in Pompano Beach, FL.

The Story of Ruby Bridges

By Robert Coles

The year is 1960, and six-year-old Ruby Bridges and her family have recently moved from Mississippi to New Orleans in search of a better life. When a judge orders Ruby to attend first grade at William Frantz Elementary, an all-white school, Ruby must face angry mobs of parents who refuse to send their children to school with her. Told with Robert Coles' powerful narrative and dramatically illustrated by George Ford, Ruby's story of courage, faith, and hope continues to resonate more than 60 years later.

do it Exhibition curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist 12:00 am | Ali Cultural Arts Center
do it Exhibition curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist

This is a joint exhibition at the Pompano Beach Cultural Center (July 9 - September 30) and the Ali Cultural Arts Center (August 20 - October 21). The celebrated do it exhibition which evolves as audience and staff perform the instructions of selected artworks in the exhibition; we may also be able to invite community members and artist to volunteer and assist in the completion of some of the projects while the exhibition is on view. In addition, do it (home) provides content for at-home instructions that can be shared through social media and websites. This traveling exhibition will retire at the end of 2021, making Pompano Beach one of its last iterations.

Curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, do it began in Paris in 1993 as a conversation between Obrist and the artists Christian Boltanski and Bertrand Lavier. Obrist was concerned with how exhibition formats could be rendered more flexible and open-ended. This discussion led to the question of whether a show could take “scores,” or written instructions by artists, as a point of departure, each of which could be interpreted anew every time they were enacted. To test the idea, Obrist invited 12 artists to send instructions, which were then translated into 9 different languages and circulated internationally as a book.

Nearly 20 years later after the initial conversation took place, do it has been featured in at least 50 different locations worldwide, including Australia, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Mexico, Costa Rica, Slovenia and Uruguay. The driving force behind the exhibition is aptly summarized in the words of Marcel Duchamp, who states that “art is a game between all people of all periods.” He is only one of several predecessors to have shaped the modus operandi of this exhibition, which also draws from Conceptual and Minimalist art of the 1960s and 1970s as well as Fluxus practices. Each do it exhibition is uniquely site-specific because it engages the local community in a dialogue that responds to and adds a new set of instructions, while it remains global in the scope of its ever-expanding repertoire. This also means that the generative and accumulative aspects of do it’s ongoing presentation are less concerned with notions of the “reproduction” or materiality of the artworks than with revealing the nuances of human interpretation in its various permutations and iterations. In this way, do it is able to bridge the gaps between the temporalities of past, present and future.

This open exhibition model has become the longest-running and most far-reaching exhibition to ever take place, giving new meaning to the concept of the “Exhibition in Progress.” In addition to the production of an on-line version of do it created by Obrist in conjunction with e-flux in 2004, other versions that do it has grown to encompass include do it (museum), do it (home), do it (TV), do it (seminar), do it (outside), do it (party), as well as some anti-do its, a philosophy do it and most recently a UNESCO children’s do it.

In building off the 1997 collaboration of ICI with Obrist to create a do it that took place in 25 cities across North America, a new version of the exhibition, which marks the 20th anniversary of this landmark project, presents the largest selection of instructional works to date—including 50 newly commissioned pieces from artists selected by Obrist and ICI. Organized around the instructions submitted by artists, venues will select at least 20 instructional works to present from a list of 250.

do it is a traveling exhibition conceived and curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, and organized by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York. The exhibition and the accompanying publication were made possible, in part by grants from the Elizabeth Firestone Graham Foundation, the Robert Sterling Clark Foundation, and with the generous support from Project Perpetual and ICI’s International Forum and Board of Trustees.
