Blog: LOS JAICHACKERS (Chile)

For the opening of Pérez Art Museum Miami, LOS JAICHACKERS are debuting a new project, Night Shade/Solanaceae. Enjoy a preview of Chile, one of five animation videos by LOS JAICHACKERS on display at PAMM's Miami Art Week/Art Basel Miami Beach opening celebration on Thursday, December 5

Night Shade/Solanaceae builds on LOS JAICHACKERS' previous performances and collaborations and responds to Miami's unique cultural and visual landscape, which they have explored in multiple visits to the city during the last year. Night Shade/Solanaceae takes its title from a family of flowering plants indigenous to the New World. It references the history of trade, particularly the import and export of new and exotic fruits and vegetables, which linked South and Central America to Europe. LOS JAICHACKERS' performative project will include sculpture, video and music. It will transform the museum into a site of cultural collisions, where music and art reflect Miami's influence as a site of exchange and metamorphosis.
