tropic panorama 12 T R O P I C M A G A Z I N E Visual art often uses narrative subject matter, and an upcoming exhibition at the Girl's Club Collection in Fort Lauderdale honors the prevalence of narrative and the power of storytelling in contemporary art. "The Moment. The Backdrop. The Per- sona.," an exhibition from the Francie Bishop Good and David Horvitz collec- tion, examines the relationship between the artist and the viewer — the desire of the artist to tell a story, and how the viewer interprets that story. It features the drawings, paintings, video and other media of more than 30 mostly female artists and invites viewers to join in and be a part of the story. Opens November 7 Girls Club Collection 117 NE 2 Street Fort Lauderdale girlsclubcollection.org Exile at Books & Books If you're looking to stock up on art books, head over to Exile, a pop-up artist's bookshop that has presently landed at Books & Books in Coral Gables. Occu- pying the west wing of the store, Exile is the brainchild of artist and 2014 Knights Arts Challenge finalist Amanda Season Keeley. Keeley decided to open the unique shop-within-a-shop to raise awareness for artist's publications and also as a means of making art more accessible to Miami locals. The Books & Books location (its second stop) features titles that focus on the history and legacy of artist's books, representing a smart, diverse cross section of art pub- lications. Exile can be found at Books & Books until November 20, when it will migrate across town to its next station at the Miami Book Fair International. Now you see it, now you don't.

"One Way: Peter Marino" features artwork installations by Gregor Hildebrandt, Guy Limone, Farhad Moshiri, Jean-Michel Othoniel and Erwin Wurm that were commissioned by Marino for his architecture and design projects. It also includes pieces from his per- sonal and extensive collection of contemporary art as well as some of Marino's internationally ac- claimed architectural designs.
