Miami, FL      O Cinema, in conjunction with the Calix Gustav Gallery, present their inaugural exhibition of video art titled, Monitoring Art, on Saturday, December 5th with a reception open to the public and held in celebration of Art Basel and the Wynwood Art Walk.
Monitoring Art showcases the talent of burgeoning and established artists working in video and the moving image. It will be a signature feature of O Cinema, a new independent & art movie theater set to open in early 2010 in Miami's Upper East Side. 
Featuring the works of ten different artists, including Clifton Childree, Xavier Cortada, Dinorah de Jesus Rodriguez, JC Espinosa, Christina Petterssen, Alette Simmons-Jimenez, Nikki Rollason, Russell Chartier, and Paul J. Botelho the exhibition will also showcase the now classic piece, I'm Not the Girl Who Misses Much, by renown international artist Pipilotti Rist.  I'm Not the Girl Who Misses Much is a lush work in which pop culture's repetitive strategies and the representations of women in the music video genre are elevated to absurdity.  
"We are thrilled to have the opportunity to exhibit the work of these wonderful video artists, many of whom live and work in South Florida.  We strive to underscore the importance of this often overlooked but fascinating medium" said Vivian Marthell, O-Cinema Co-Director and the shows curator.  This exhibition is made possible by a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation and the Miami-Dade Department of Cultural Affairs.
Monitoring Art will open simultaneous to a group exhibition at the Calix Gustav Gallery titled, "Grit: to endure a trying situation and continue on without complaint," which will feature works by Yanelis Lopez, Jonathan Stein, and Spunk and the Orange Kittens and was curated by Gallery Director Amanda Fernandez-Leon.
 "Monitoring Art" and "Grit: to endure a trying situation and continue on without complaint" will run from December 1st, 2009 through February 2nd, 2010 at the Calix Gustav Gallery 98 NW 29th Street. Monitoring Art opens Saturday, December 5th from 6pm to 9pm.  Visiting hours are from Tuesday to Friday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.
The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation promotes excellence in journalism worldwide and invests in the vitality of the U.S. communities where the Knight brothers owned newspapers. Knight Foundation focuses on projects with the potential to create transformational change. For more, visit
