mujer_cita_MIACONFRONTS ISSUES OF CONCERN TO WOMEN
EQUAL-OPPORTUNITYPROVOCADORADINORAH DE JESUS RODRIGUEZ PREMIERES NEW PUBLIC-INTERVENTION ART APRIL 18-20 Miami On Stage 2013 Showcase "The Ladies’ Room is that ironic place of utmost privacy in public," says artist Dinorah de Jesús Rodriguez, about the location of her public-intervention video art installationmujer_cita_MIA. It premieres April 18-20 in the common areas of Miami-Dade County Auditorium (including the women's restroom). This will be the first of her series of public installations tackling issues of concern to women, presented during FUNDarte's Miami On Stage weekend of orignal music and art by Miami-based artists.
"The women's restroom is a place where fleeting moments occur between random strangers. We wash our hands and apply lipstick in a mirror together and wish each other a nice day - after having just taken care of our other, more delicate personal matters," says Dinorah.
"Imagine if, as we do this, we are surprised by the presence of a unique video-art piece on the wall. Then this unexpected work provokes us with images about issues we are discussing through social media, among friends in private and public places, and quite possibly, in the Ladies’ Room itself. Imagine if this unexpected provocation reminds us of our strength as women, of the difficulties we face daily, and our power to continuously evolve."
