VERSUS by Pepe Mar is temporary installation taking the form of a gay bar. The the installation incorporates Mar's recent body of work involving the artist's own designer clothing worn during the halcyon club days of the 90’s and early 2000’s framed in baroque-style frames and a collection of queer ephemera and eclectic art from Reniel Diaz. VERSUS also hosts performances by queer artists Jacolby Satterwhite and Elijah Burgher, art exhibits by young queer artists including Brian Kokoska. VERSUS offers vestiges of a gloried gay past, now virtually forgotten, and fills a void in Miami’s mainland which is completely without this kind of venue. The project will operate as a real bar, inviting the community to engage with a queer aesthetic.
