DUSK curated/organized by Raul Zamudio,The Village, Ocean drive(Diva Fair)12/07-10/2006 7 00 pm - 10 00 pm Price: Open to the public Every day at dusk, Raul Zamudio invites a curator to present the work of selected video artists. - - -DIVA Miami and Raul Zamudio Presents: DUSK /dʌsk/–noun 1. The state or period of partial darkness between day and night; the dark part of twilight. 2. Partial darkness; shade; gloom: “She was barely visible in the dusk of the room.” Dusk, as it definition implies, is an in-between state; and this designation is used as curatorial framework for a series of video exhibitions that will be part of DIVA Miami Beach. DUSK consists of programs of video art selected by local, national and international curators under the directorship of Raul Zamudio. Each curator will be given a slot in the program to interpret dusk either in its literal guise as a register between lightness and darkness, in its implication as “partial darkness, shade, gloom”, or will use the term as metaphorical foil.
