David's Pick


When the summer heat descends upon Miami, a syrupy slowness begins to permeate the city, and the art districts are no exception. During these months, foot traffic and events slow down, which can spell disaster for working artists. Enter the Collabo show. Dating back to 2005, the show is organized by and for artists as a means of keeping momentum in the city through the sweltering summer. The last iteration was in 2015, and the event has been sorely missed in the interim. But fret not. Collabo is back on August 31 with its sixth installment. Boasting some of the most out-there, performative, and interactive works one can see in the city all year, Collabo gives artists free reign to create work with a lone stipulation: they must collaborate with each other. Past highlights include a piano played by loosed chickens, glow-in-the-dark dance performances with live musical accompaniment, and a splatter-paint piece created by audience members tasked with throwing darts at pigment-filled balloons. Collabo 6 promises a continuation of the creativity-run-amok that has become the show’s trademark. August 31, 7:00 to 11:30 p.m., 141 E.
