After a late-night build, Diana Garcia prepares on the morning of her show "Is this a Staind song, or a Mexican grave dance?" with a key object in the performance.


On the morning of Diana Garcia's show her vital possessions rest on a worktable backstage.


Diana Garcia's installation, bathed in blue light, awaits her confinement on the morning of her show.


As the show opens, Diana Garcia makes a first mark with shovel and red paint in her installation "Is this a Staind song, or a Mexican grave dance?"


And so Diana Garcia's 11-hour performance begins the morning of her show "Is this a Staind song, or a Mexican grave dance?"


Viewers of Diana Garcia's "Is this a Staind song, or a Mexican grave dance?" must walk through a narrow tunnel to fully encounter her piece.


Halfway through the day of Diana Garcia's 11-hour performance "Is this a Staind song, or a Mexican grave dance?"


As Diana Garcia's 11-hour performance "Is this a Staind song, or a Mexican grave dance?" neared closing time, the artist seemed to collapse in exhaustion, a position she maintained for nearly 30 minutes.

In the very early hours of the morning, Renata Rojo prepares her installation space for "Jenk".


Just before doors open, her installation complete, Renata Rojo places herself within the context of her piece, "Jenk".


Renata Rojo's bed in her piece "Jenk" is placed at a window beside a bus stop on NW 2nd Avenue, where as day turns to night, the artgoing crowds of Wynwood and local bus riders will be increasingly optioned the opportunity for voyeurism. Renata and a performer are here positioned for easy visibility as they share a bed in this early day photo.
