The MIA Portrait Project film series is the first original programming of the art-centric video site WAYPOINT, which debuted at CONTEXT Art Miami 2015. The portrait-making encounters between four diverse artists - Jessie Laino, Christina Pettersson, Kerry Phillips and Kristen Thiele and their subjects, Miami International Airport employees – are the focus of the new series of films.
WAYPOINT is a public electronic art exhibition project inaugurated at one of the world’s largest transportation hubs, Miami International Airport (with annual traffic of more than 40 million passengers). Its mission is to present and engage travelers with a rich and vibrant stream of programming that includes short documentary films about artists creating work and visually inspiring video artwork by established and emerging artists.
WAYPOINT was developed by the Division of Fine Arts & Cultural Affairs, Miami International Airport, in association with contemporary art filmmakers Wet Heat Project.
