Under My Skin

curated by Grela Orihuela


A phrase lifted from the lyrical echoes of Sinatra in the very same spot where the Ratpack threw back the Jack in Miami. The impetuous ghosts of the original jetset commingle with an international medley of video artists in a program curated by Grela Orihuela located in the Jazz Club. Under My Skin is an exhibition of body and soul, its characters and conceptions insinuating their yearning and conflicting passions into the cool, dark confines of this historic venue’s iconic lounge.
