Miami, FL – December 4-6 of 2014  – A state-of-the-art, live performance experience by visual artist Nina Dotti is to happen around Wynwood, during Art Basel Miami week. Presented by The Chill Concept Museum, Dotti is to point out controversial public affair issues in Miami Dade County through a performance where she dresses and acts as a beauty queen who becomes a Major of the “Independent Republic of Wynwood”. The event will feature a fusion of performance art and storytelling. It is a parody of the former Venezuelan beauty queen who became a Major of a wealthy municipality of Caracas.

An art walk, costumes and a newspaper will be part of the performance. The audience will follow Miss Wynwood around town, starting at The Chill Concept Museum, located on 114 Northeast 20th Terrace, and going on 2nd NW from 20th St towards 36th St in Miami. Events dates are December 4th – 6th of 2014 at 8 pm.

Gay marriage in Florida, legalization of marijuana, parking tax for Wynwood galleries are some of the issues Miss Wynwood includes in her political “campaign”, rich with irony.

“Through installations, performances, video and photography I represent using irony and humor any issue of the XXI century society. Throughout them I articulate the complex dynamics of my intertwined feelings in connection with the traditional society”, says Dotti about her artwork.

Nina Dotti (B.1968) is a Venezuelan artist who lives and works in Miami, Florida. She has a Bachelor’s in Museum Studies and Art History from Jose Maria Vargas University in Caracas. Dotti also specialized in photography at Roberto Mata School and went to the Art Student League of NY for sculpture and drawing. Galerie 13 Jeanette Mariani in Paris has represented her since 2006. Exhibitions include Paris, New York, Miami, Buenos Aires, Caracas, Berlin, Basel, and Shanghai, among others.

Her main focus is performance, installation, video and photography. Dotti’s inspiration derives from social clichés attached to women and female behavior in general. Defined as a new media contemporary artist and a “pluralized woman” by French critic Frederic Charles Baitinger, Nina attempts to evoke through her work, women’s role in the XXI century.

Miss Wynwood Performance begins at The Chill Concept, located at 114 Northeast 20th Terrace, Miami, and will go on 2nd NW from 20th St to 36th St. December 4th to 6th at 8:00 pm
