Overview

“Miami is Nice” is a group art exhibition, queer performance series, and gay wedding celebration, inspired by the fearless irreverence of the hit television show The Golden Girls. “Miami is Nice” will take guests to Blanche Devereaux's idealized version of South Florida in the 1980s, a decade primarily known within the queer community for the devastating aftermath of the AIDS crisis and the triumphant acts of perseverance which mobilized a generation to fight for recognition. Utilizing The Golden Girls as a symbol of strength, subversion, and profound acceptance, “Miami is Nice” continues that fight by offering a joyful, nostalgic, and leisurely escape from the struggles of daily life to an actualized paradise: a world in which love wins. With the U.S. presidential election, and the recent closings of safe queer spaces in Baltimore, “Miami is Nice” will provide a temporary refuge for members of the community who have been isolated by these events. Utilizing Golden Girls nostalgia, this public exhibition and series of programs will provide a safe space for artists and patrons, and spark conversations around what it means to live openly, create freely, and continue fighting for equality with LGBTQIA+ allies and art lovers.
