PRESS RELEASE: August 1, 2020



SUMMER WINDOWS @ SWAMPSPACE OPENS IN THE MIAMI DESIGN DISTRICT


Art in the time of COVID on view 24/7 


MARCUS BLAKE STOREFRONT   August 3rd through September 1st, 2020


“Nothing is important... so everything is important”  Keith Haring


For our August installation in the windows we celebrate art on the streets of Miami and beyond with an encore view of Markus Blake’s iconic mural. One could say affectionately that Marcus is the prince of storefronts. He has perfected a distinctive and lyrical technical style aptly called Tapenology. More so Blake demonstrates prolifically the power of creative leadership that is highly regarded by our community. Blake is a prophet of positive thought and an undeniable champion for our times.  




Art enthusiasts are familiar with the Windows at Wallgreens where art is on display for everyone to experience.  The Inside Out USA project places copies of blue chip art in unlikely places with the hope that regular people will appreciate it. These beneficial partnerships aim to build an audience that is agreeable to a collective awareness of the power of art. The result is a greater understanding of civility affecting change. Windows@Swampspace offers a much needed soulful relief from the lashing of our times.

A window is not a mirror. It is not a reflection of reality. A window is a portal and a barrier at once.  A window is a veil through which one may spin the filters of experience to focus on resplendent fields of analytical inquiry.

3 GRACES - Naughty Then & Now






















Update: Press!

THREE GRACES - Naughty Then and Now. 
Bunny Yeager / Kitty Brophy / Eve Eurydice

Opening Reception: November 16, 2019 7-11pm 

Open Daily: Monday - Saturday 11-7pm 
Closing: December 27, 2019

Bunny Yeager offers us a glimpse into a sultry and ribald society seemingly marooned on South Florida in the 1950’s. Her photographic work underscores a mythical underbelly of beauty and fertility depicted with grace and gray scale. Yeager’s most indelible impressions are of the notorious Bettie Page.

Kitty Brophy is a Charites of the west. Nature is her domain. Her work is like an Erté without the nightgown, a Schiele without the angst. They are auto-anatomical landscapes adrift in tactile abandon, precision and passion. For Kitty, beauty is in the eye the tiger.


Eve Eurydice speaks to the fetish of manners, popular culture and risk assessment. Eve is the greek tycoon of an erotic socio political economic divide. Her ability to smash the moralist and decentralize systems of understanding a fuel that blasted outward broadcasting all cardinal points of view.

As our mythological goddesses of Charites, Yeager, Brophy and Eurydice lure us towards a right of passage. These three graces captivate us with lasting images of the fairer sex. They grab our gaze with their charming distillations of human creativity that are befit the retinue of Aphrodite.

Jewbana by Susie K. Taylor



J E W B A N A

By Susie K. Taylor and Nedra Gallegos

One Night Only - Miami Premier - October 19th  6-10pm

Showtime 8:00pm

“Eggcellent Show” Edinburgh Fringe Review

Jewbana is a theatrical monologue about a girl named Susie. Like most of us, Susie is many things. She is a native, a Jew, a wife, daughter, sister, mother, best friend, an actress and escape artist. With so many hats to wear, you may wonder who exactly is Susie?  Well ask no more. Join Susie as she hurls through a surreal and tribal wonderland. The vapors of time and space transform her into vignettes of the major characters in her life. The result is a delightful absurdist drama, ribald and the occasional poignant satire.
