To understand the mission of BFI, WEIRD MIAMI is a place to start. The program is an eccentric look at odd attributes of this city through bus tours and art exhibits, launched by BFI as a special summer group show and transformed into an ongoing adventure. They're all about bringing the 305 into the international mix, curating a local-global conglomoration of work and experimental exhibitions. From the work of Mike Diana (the first artist ever to receive a criminal conviction for obscenity for artwork in the U.S.) to Miami notables The End/ Spring Break to beach painting parties, their lineup is eclectic, eye-opening and oh-so-Miami. They're also into collaboration, working with other local art institutions and bringing attention to the growing downtown art scene.
