Beatriz Monteavaro "Nochebuena" @ Locust Projects In Miami

Locust Projects presents Nochebuena, a new immersive installation by Cuban-born, Miami-based artist Beatriz Monteavaro. The exhibition is centered around memories of family gatherings in the artist’s childhood home, with a focus on the celebrations surrounding Nochebuena (Cuban Christmas Eve). Monteavaro’s work is influenced by the English Punk Rock music scene, science fiction and horror movies, and the fantasy environments of Disney Theme Parks. She has adapted and transformed some of her existing paintings, drawings and sculpture for this installation, which are presented in combination with new sculptural pieces, seasonal decorations, and special lighting. Beatriz Monteavaro "Nochebuena" will be on view until January 9, 2015 at Locust Projects, 3852 North Miami Avenue, Miami Florida
