LargeUp Presents: Chi Ching Ching X Eccentrix Sound in Europe

chi-ching-ching

Chi Ching Ching, one of our 21 artists to watch for 2014, and the Eccentrix Sound crew are about to take Europe by storm this month. Thanks to Team No Sleep, Four Star Foundation, and oh yeah, LargeUp, the Jamaica and Miami-based artists are set to bring the bashment with stops in Sweden, Austria, Germany, and Italy.

To follow up on the tour preview video we dropped a few weeks back, Eccentrix and Ching have dropped a video for their remix of Lil Jon’s “Turn Down For What” (endorsed by Jon himself!) just in time to get y’all hyped for their first visit to the Continent.

Visual Culture: Finding the Caribbean at Art Basel

Words by Natalie Weiner—legagneur 2 Art Basel, though legendary in the art world (and for the crazy parties that inevitably go along with it), is not necessarily known for its commitment to diversity. Miami is just one of the festival’s three locations, and especially given the extraordinary variety of cultures found there, the main exhibition is often surprisingly unrepresentative. Luckily, local Miami arts organizations that work to advocate for diasporic artists time some of their most exciting exhibitions to coincide with the festival.

legagneur The “Caribbean Fantastic” exhibit, for example, is taking place at the Multitudes Gallery whose curator Babacar Mbow specifically focuses on presenting art from around the African diaspora. This exhibit, which runs from December 3rd to January 2nd, is centered on Haiti and features Haitian artist Jean Claude Legagneur. Legagneur’s work uses bright colors and strong textures to show the many different faces of Caribbean and American culture, generally through intimate portraits. The show opens tonight, and naturally the gallery is throwing a party to celebrate – specifically, a “Night of Haitian Diplomacy” for Haitian, American, and Haitian-American art fans to eat, drink, and enjoy the paintings. It starts at 7:30 – check out all the details here.

It doesn’t get any more Bahamian than conch salad. But the best conch salad around might just be in Miami.
