‘La Habana’ Exhibition Features Works of Cuban-Born Photographer Victoria Montoro


The University of Miami School of Architecture presents “La Habana,” an exhibition of photographs by Victoria Montoro. The exhibit will be on display from July 7 to August 12, Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the Korach Gallery of the Jorge M. Perez Architecture Center. A reception will be held on Wednesday, July 13 from 6 to 8 p.m. The reception is free and open to the public.

Cuban–born Victoria Montoro left Havana in 1961 and returned for the first time in 2008. The daughter of a former political prisoner, she calls the trip the most important of her life. It was a time for her to reconcile her memories from those invented ones or imagined ones acquired through the years. This body of work reveals how the buildings in La Habana have endured.

This course, offered through the Professional Development and Training Office in partnership with the Faculty and Staff Assistance Program, will help participants learn how to actively listen in a variety of situations, listen for different types of input and respond appropriately, and identify pertinent information. Note: This is a Series I core course for Emerging Leaders.

M.F.A Exhibition ‘Metrouroboros’ to Open at Wynwood Project Space


Ashley Ford, untitled prints from Privy series, 2008.

The University of Miami presents a Master of Fine Arts exhibition by Ashley Ford. “Metrouroboros,” which will be on view at UM’s Wynwood Project Space beginning July 9, is the examination of the contemporary non-place. The term “non-place” as coined by French anthropologist Marc Augé indicates a kind of place that has a sense of liminality. These are spaces that are common to our everyday lives, that we pass through with frequency yet don’t hold enough significance to be regarded as places—highways, public restrooms, airports. “Metrouroboros” examines the psychological and sociological impact of these places and the interactions we have within them.
Ashley Ford has been exhibiting work in print, photography, drawing, and bookbinding since 2001. She received her B.F.A with honors in studio art as well as a B.A. in psychology from the University of Central Florida. Her work often has heavy psychological and anthropological themes. She has exhibited her prints and books across the country and has been collected by the Miami Dade Public Library System as well as the University of Alabama’s W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library.
“Metrouroboros” by Ashley Ford will be on view from July 9-29 at UM’s Wynwood Project Space, 2200A NW 2nd Avenue, Miami. There will be an opening reception for the artist on Saturday, July 9 at 6 p.m. A full schedule of exhibitions can be viewed at www.as.miami.edu/art. For more information about the exhibition or Wynwood Project Space, call 305-284-2543 or email [email protected].
