BFI’s WEIRD MIAMI program invites artists to create tours that reflect their relationship with the city as a kind of expanded studio visit. In the pandemic-present, BFI has evolved this program into the WEIRD MIAMI ANTHOLOGY, a collection of Self-Guided “WEIRD MIAMI” tours, excursions and experiences! Each “tour” is an experience designed by local artists to highlight unexpected sites and provide insight on why Miami is wild, weird and wonderful, while critiquing and imagining its future.
We are excited to be launching the next 3 chapters of the Weird Miami Anthology in partnership with Deering Estate. Join BFI at Deering Estate on Sunday morning, September 26th, to receive the next three physical zines in our ongoing publishing project, designed and printed with Exile Books. This trilogy of zines groups together site-specific activities and experiences that the audience is invited to participate in along the Old Cutler state historic highway.
- A Kayak Float with Fereshteh Toosi at Deering Estate, in the spirit of the artist’s Weird Miami Zine: Water Radio: Launch Frequencies.
- A smartphone video screening, and Bodymovement introductory workshop with Jenna Balfe for her Weird Miami Zine: SWAMP BALL.
- A reflective walk along Snapper Creek for Jessie Gold’s Weird Miami Zine: Pop that Vespucci or Reflections on Land, Water, and Rhythm.
