The World Premier of The LIGHT Performance Art Series Exhibition is one-of-a-kind for installations. This is the ultimate arrangement, Art Basel 2016 being the perfect platform and The Gleason Room at The Fillmore Miami Beach the ideal venue.
Artist, Juan Diaz, began this body of work in early 2010. Each of the fifteen works in this series was created live at major art and cultural events in front of large audiences in collaboration with DJ’s and musicians, creation time between 20 to 40 minutes. The following is the description of the series:
LIGHT Performance Art Series
The “LIGHT” Performance Art Series is my invitation to live the CREATIVE PROCESS without any interruptions. The piece tells a story by unpredictable FLOWING COLOR, that transforms as the Sounds and Lights alter; all in one metamorphose.
This event will be open to the public only on December 3, 2016, from 4 p.m. till 1 a.m. at The Gleason Room at The Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33139. This is a two-part event, the exhibition portion is from 4 p.m. till 10 p.m. and there is no charge to attend. From10 p.m. till 1 a.m. is the performance lounge, where a LIGHT performance artwork will be created along side with a guest DJ. There will be a a $15 charge at the door after 10 p.m..

About Juan Diaz
Juan Diaz’s work has been included in important exhibitions at the Patty & Jay Baker Naples Museum of Art, The Naples Depot Museum and Florida Gulf Coast University, as well as the Alliance for the Arts. His LIGHT Performance Art Series has been commission and treasured by the Holocaust Museum of Southwest Florida, The Naples Art Association at the Von Liebig Art Center, The Sidney & Berne Davies Art Center and the Naples Film Festival.
Since the late 1990‘s, Diaz has used painting and drawing to explore and expose the complexities of life seeking freedom, respect and equality. Diaz added to his creative outlets, performing art and installation in 2010, using them to investigate the relationships between life and death. Diaz’s work shows his need to break away from the comfort zone. His work is the reflection of constant search to express his process of understanding the human experience.
In early 2006, Diaz met renowned artist Jonathan Green who resided in Naples, Florida. Green and his art manager Richard Weedman were impressed with Diaz’s compositional skills and his outstanding use of geometric planes and understanding of perspective and color, and offered him a mentorship to learn about art business, administrative and management methods, which lasted three years. Diaz was the recipient of Southwest Florida 2013 FACE Award for Culture & Arts awarded by Gulfshore Life Business Magazine and the 1999 Porter Goss Award.
