MIAMI, FL.- Naomi Fisher's Jungle Sweat, Roseate is the fall/winter exhibition of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens' Contemporary Arts Project (CAP), a commission program that invites artists to develop site-specific projects inspired by the historic house museum and National Historic Landmark. Jungle Sweat, Roseate will be on view through January 16, 2012 at Vizcaya.

South Florida native Naomi Fisher weaves her lifelong memories of Vizcaya within a fictional narrative to create Jungle Sweat, Roseate, a video piece and installation on view throughout the Main House. Fisher's ongoing exploration of nature and our desire to tame it comes into focus at Vizcaya, where the imposition of formal architecture on a native landscape presents striking contrasts. The work features a female character who stumbles upon Vizcaya from the depths of the mangroves, covered in the residue of nature. Fisher tells the fantastical story of the woman's experiences in this new environment and her struggles to dethrone the "civilized" Lady of the House.

Naomi Fisher is an artist whose practice encompasses live performance, photography, painting and works on paper. Fisher has exhibited nationally and internationally and is a recipient of a 2008 Knight Arts Challenge Grant from the John S. & James L. Knight Foundation. She co-founded and jointly directs the Bas Fisher Invitational, an artist-run space in Miami.

The Contemporary Arts Project (CAP) reinvigorates Vizcaya with the creative dialogue that characterized its foundation, engaging artists whose practice establishes a discourse or a critique with the physical and cultural contexts of the place. In addition to Naomi Fisher's project, Vizcaya has commissioned site-specific work from Ernesto Oroza, Francesco Simeti and Josiah McElheny throughout 2011 and 2012.

The Contemporary Arts Project (CAP) is supported by The Danielson Foundation, Harpo Foundation, Stella M. Holmes, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Chauncey and Marion D. McCormick Family Foundation and Mayfair Hotel & Spa. Additional support is provided by: The Vizcayans; the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners; and the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.

Built by businessman James Deering in 1916, Vizcaya Museum & Gardens, a National Historic Landmark, features a Main House, ten acres of formal gardens, a hardwood hammock and a historic village that will provide additional venues for programs and community outreach. Located at 3251 South Miami Avenue, Vizcaya is open daily from 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. except Tuesdays, Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.
