  • ICA Miami 4040 NE 2nd Ave Miami, FL, 33137 United States

Our friends at ICA Miami are presenting a talk and interactive workshop by writer/educator Suhail Malik. Malik’s program is presented in conjunction with Cannonball, where he has served as faculty member in the r.a.d (research.art.dialogue) program. The talk will begin at 7pm on Friday, July 24. The workshop will begin at 2pm on Saturday, July 25. Admission is free for both events with RSVP. (Click here to RSVP.)

Malik will discuss transitions in the market of contemporary art, what it means for those involved, and what advantages it may present for those who are currently not beneficiaries of the art market. Malik will then conduct an interactive, practice­-oriented workshop that draws heavily upon concepts discussed during the talk.
