"The Black Factory," an art instillation of wheels, will be rolling into town next week. The brainchild of William L. Pope, the Factory invited people to bring objects that represent "blackness" to the truck. Many of the projects are then broken down and resold in the truck's gift shop.
Other projects include Eduardo Abaroa's "Aierel Diary," in which free parasailing rides are offered, but the parachutes used must have the day of the week writen on the back, "as if one had to be reminded of the day of the week during vacation." Jeez, art with the wit of a Ziggy cartoon.
Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Miami with no paywalls.
