Before Godlis was photographing CBGB during the punk heyday, he was shooting Miami Beach right before everything changed.

Godlis intentionally chose to shoot in black and white with a Pentax SLR, creating a body of work that captures a slide of American life that has long since disappeared. Now, more than four decades after they were made, the 12 of the photographs from this pivotal series of work are on view as part of Kitsch and Kulture: Transition in South Florida 1960-1990, a group show on view at The Box Gallery,West Palm Beach, from July 15–August 30, 2017. -by Miss Rosen

Transition in South Florida Culture 1960-1990

811 Belvedere Road, West Palm Beach, Florida 33405

The art exhibition, Kitsch and Kulture, which opens at The Box Gallery this evening, explores three decades of work by four artists who have left an indelible visual account of South Florida’s Kitsch Kulture of the 60-90’s era. The exhibition, co-curated by Rolando Chang Barrero and Sandra Schulman, opens with a reception 7 p.m. at the gallery, at 811-b Belvedere Road. The exhibit continues through Aug.30.
Although Kitsch has become recognized as a style and movement in the arts, it is considered low-brow among many intellectuals — seen primarily through a sentimental pane of melancholia created by the non-traditional artist. Ironically South Florida, which is currently at the top of the international fine art scene, has served as the bulwark of kitsch art and culture for more than 25 years. For information on the exhibit, call 786-521-1199. -Palm Beach Post
