Miami has been an open format of sorts, a canvas transforming before our very eyes. Wynwood is often cited as the recent pioneer of this change, and it’s certainly produced some of the city’s most noteworthy projects and initiatives. As with any area, once it becomes “a thing” the outskirts are where the most interesting activities lay.
We’ve seen this happen with Brooklyn, which was the funkier more potent version of its famously oversaturated Manhattan (and that has since been replaced with Queens). It never fails: if you want to get to know the truest expression of an area… visit its outskirts.
Case and point, the Gesamtkunstwerk. To call it a building would take away from what it’s striving to accomplish. The Gesamtkunstwerk is encapsulated by its name, a German word meaning “total work of art”. The word refers to a work of art that makes use of all or many art forms; or strives to do so. In the same spirit, the multi-disciplinary creative initiative located west of the Wynwood Arts District in Miami, FL lives up to its name.
The Gesamtkunstwerk project was designed to give a curated group of businesses and individuals, who were influential in the development of Wynwood as an arts community, with the long-term stability needed to continue their efforts. The building houses a diverse range of tenants that include Butter Gallery, Wynwood Radio, product/81 creative lab., Plataforma, Panther Coffee and WynwoodMurals.com
In preparation for Miami Art Week, the Gesamtkunstwerk’s creative inhabitants have an exciting week of cultural and artistic ventures planned. Don’t miss out…

Recent work by Tatyana Fazlalizadeh and Diana Larrea
alizadeh’s work moves effortlessly between the street and the gallery. Her street art series, Stop Telling Women to Smile, has garnered attention around the world for bringing light to street harassment and women’s rights via visual art.
“One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is to witness the interaction between the street artist and his surroundings, the complex dynamics of community and how ephemeral their work can be. Through photography I have witnessed the honest and sometimes wild side of Miami’s urban culture.”

“My work explores the relationship between abstract and organic objects, drawings, paintings, and photographs.”
