Chef Creole to spotlight social injustice with Urban Uproar Edition
The Miami Urban Contemporary Experience (MUCE) and Chef Creole are set to present the ‘Now or Neverland Art Fair: Urban Uproar Edition’ during Art Basel weekend starting Thursday. At center stage of the art fair is Urban Uproar, an exhibition featuring a collection of over 40 local, national and international visual artists including Miami native and artistic genius Anthony Lumpkin of Lavish-n-Looney, whom with canvas and paint brush explores social issues affecting the black male experience in America. The exhibit reflects the dynamic process of forging cultural identity in urban landscapes.
The uproar is the urban voice as it maintains cultural evolution among the often chaotic pulse of food, migration, climate, politics and economics. The four-day event will also feature a fashion show, an awards block party for the winners of the South Florida Web Fest (SoFloWebFest), live and interactive art for the entire family, and live performances from artists such as The Florensics featuring Ja’Nia Harden, The Tattooed Ballerinas, the Kamaria Dance Group and poetry powered by Poetry & Talents.
“We want the diverse community that makes up Miami to be center stage during Art Basel,” said Chef Wilkinson “Ken” Sejour, the owner of Chef Creole. “I want all 80 thousand visitors, guests to come experience excellent art and fantastic foods in what locals call the ‘real’ Miami.”
