Trina making ‘Waves’ at Perez Art Museum Miami


“Waves,” the Perez Art Museum Miami’s ongoing program colliding music and performance art, continues April 30 with “En Plein Aire: Diamond Princess,” a collaborative piece by Jacolby Satterwhite and Miami-based rapper and model Trina, as Phillip Valys reports for

Satterwhite is a painter, digital artist and dancer who gained attention for his 2014 show at the Whitney Biennial and for collaborating with Jay-Z for the rapper’s “Picasso Baby” art installation. Trina, meanwhile, found acclaim in her early 2000s collaborations with Trick Daddy, Ludacris and Miami rap boss Rick Ross. Their resulting video is pure kaleidoscopic weirdness, scored by DJ Total Freedom and combining animation, drawings, Satterwhite’s interpretive dance and the remixed voice of Trina. Satterwhite and Trina will re-create parts of their video during an outdoor performance. The “Waves” series, consisting of one-night-only commissions, will run through May 14.
