Join us for a lively conversation with FIU Honors and CARTA faculty member, Pioneer Winter and Frost Art Museum Chief Curator, Amy Galpin. Inspired by the civil rights histories explored in the Art After Stonewall exhibition, Winter will discuss the resonance of the exhibition and notions of identity, resilience, and place. The notion of place is inherently tied to the museum’s spring exhibition Transitional Nature. The conversation will reveal new information about Winter’s forthcoming project Birds of Paradise for the Adrienne Arsht Center.

Pioneer Winter is a Miami-based choreographer and dancer, recognized in Dance Magazine's 2019 “25 to Watch". He directs Pioneer Winter Collective, a contemporary dance and physical theater company of allied bodies, who democratize performance in public spaces, museums/galleries, stage, and film. The Collective is freed through an ethos tied to sharing human experience as wholly as possible.
