Radio Juxtapoz, ep 036: The Homeless Podcast
Homeless is the latest project from artist and past Radio Juxtapoz guest, Axel Void and his ongoing residency, Void Projects. In association with Fifth Wall TV's and Radio Juxtapoz co-host Doug Gillen, Homeless offers an intimate insight to life inside Axel Void's Miami residency. Over a period of two weeks, Miami based artist Alejandro Dorda invites roughly 15 artists from around the world to stay in his house to eat, sleep and create together. Throughout the experience the artists are asked to explore their relationship to concept of "home" through their work. The residency culminates with the house transformed into a very special kind of exhibition.
The aim is to create quality shows outside of the conventional art scene, cutting the middlemen, galleries or institutions. Favoring the direct dialogue from the artist to the public. For this second edition of Homeless, Void Projects proposes a show and residency formed by local, national and international, classical painters. As well as live music, gastronomy and installations. The works will be presented with in a quotidian home environment. It is a old house built in the 1920's situated in North Miami just outside of the wall that divides Miami Shores, a upper class neighborhood from a working class area of unincorporated Miami-Dade. The concept of this collective show is to talk about the idea of a home from a political, social or personal viewpoint. Addressing this idea based on cultural heritage, identity and patriotism.
