The Retrofit

Feb 18 2024
3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


Deering Estate Visitor Center, 16701 SW 72nd Avenue, Palmetto Bay Fl 33157

Deering Estate Artist-in-Residence and Emmy-award winning filmmaker Marlon Johnson presents the second season of The Retrofit, an interdisciplinary series inside the Deering Estate theatre. The Retrofit is a five-part multimedia film and live performance series at the intersection of the arts, natural environment, and social justice. The Retrofit is a campaign to reimagine spaces and expressions while celebrating a shared foundation. It is where we set out to reframe a better version of ourselves. Hosted by Miami-Native Carla Hill, and curated by local filmmaker Marlon Johnson, this series champions the transformative power of the arts through storytelling and invites its audience along for the ride.

Marlon Johnson is the Charles Deering McCormick Fellow of the Deering Estate’s artist-in-residence program. The fellowship is sponsored in part by the Deering Estate Foundation and the Charles Deering McCormick Friends of Art Fund.

This iteration of the Retrofit will commemorate Black History Month and reimagine it as Black Future Month. The program will showcase a diverse array of artists that contribute to a dynamic exploration of culture, creativity, and the limitless contributions that shape the narrative of black excellence, both past and future.

The program will take place indoors inside the Deering Estate theatre on Sunday, February 18, 2024. The program is from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Cost: $20 per person (members and non-members). Recommended for ages 18+.
