Please join us as we steal a few precious hours from the working week to toast the first year of the Miami Writer’s Prize and its winner, Annie Hollingsworth, at Locust Projects tomorrow.

Locust Project’s current exhibition How To Read A Book was curated by Michael Wilson and features works by Becky Beasley, Guy Ben-Ner, Lorin Davies, Harrell Fletcher, Jeff Gabel, Anna Gray and Ryan Wilson Paulsen, Graham Parker, Christina Pettersson, Leanne Shapton, Eve K. Tremblay, and Matt Wiegle.

At the same time, a few doors away from Locust Projects, Dimensions Variable will host their Roast performance, an event spearheaded by current exhibitor Carlos Rigau.

Gallery says: “A roast, in North American is an event in which an individual is subjected to a public presentation of comedic insults, outlandish true and untrue stories. The implication being that the roastee is able to take the jokes in good humor and not as serious criticism or insult, and therefore, show their good nature. It is seen as a great honor to be roasted, as the individual is surrounded by friends, fans, and well-wishers, who can receive some of the same treatment as well during the course of the evening. The party and presentation itself are both referred to as a roast. The host of the event is called the roastmaster. Anyone who is honored in such a way is said to have been “roasted”.

See you tomorrow! 7 – 9 pm, NE 38th Street, Design District, Miami.
