Feels Like 97°
During Miami Art Week 2021, Oolite Arts present Feels Like 97°, an exhibition exploring photography and video artworks produced under the warmth of South Florida’s sun. The compulsion to focus on South Florida comes not only from the dreamlike imagery but an opportunity to look at the diversity and socio-economic divide that exists in a community fraught with the effects of climate change and gentrification. Two things that further complicate the already present issues of class and race.
The title speaks to jargon used by news sources to articulate the experience of leaving cool air-conditioned environments to face the predictable but harsh conditions outside.
