The de la Cruz Collection Contemporary Art Space is pleased to announce In Process by Miami-based artist Amanda Keeley. For this project, Keeley has initiated a unique partnership utilizing her project EXILE Books, which will serve as a collaborative catalyst connecting the de la Cruz Collection with its neighboring facility, the Little Haiti Cultural Complex. Keeley will install a temporary screen-printing studio within the de la Cruz Collection, allowing students from the Little Haiti Cultural Complex to participate in live-printing sessions, thereby producing new work that will activate the on-site installation.

EXILE Books will concurrently curate a selection of artist books that employ screen-printing techniques, publications that reflect the cultural diversity of Little Haiti, as well as titles by artists represented in the de la Cruz Collection's current exhibition. This "Magic City Collective" will explore the numerous ways artists use the printed medium to communicate, connect, and impact communities beyond our own. As a documentation of this participatory process, EXILE Books will also produce a publication, Ink Process, created on a risograph machine, employing similar techniques to screen-printing. This publication will be a collective artist book; all students contributing a "work in process" will be displayed on-site and included in the publication. The finished artist book will be available at the closing of the exhibition. As part of the de la Cruz Collection and EXILE Books' commitment to educational outreach and enrichment, all equipment and supplies used during In Process will be donated to the Little Haiti Cultural Complex for future community use.

This exhibition is made possible with the generous support of Rosa and Carlos de la Cruz
(de la Cruz Collection) and The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

With additional support from The Little Haiti Cultural Complex, City of Miami,
Printed Matter, Inc. and Sonos.
