The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami – Our Legacy

When: December 5, 2023 – early 2024

Where: The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami (10295 Collins Ave, Bal Harbour, FL 33154)

What: The Ritz-Carlton Bal Harbour, Miami presents Our Legacy by Israeli – born artist Ronen Azulay. The exhibition presents a deep and personal tapestry of Ronen’s family history, showing traces of the origins of a union that transcended tribal boundaries, a testament to love’s power to bridge divides. As Ronen examined his family lineage, he discovered an ever-changing world – one marked by escalating intra-Jewish tensions that necessitated the concealment of our roots, particularly the precious North African heritage. This body of work comes from profound self-discovery. The mosaics are painstakingly assembled from cherished recycled fabrics and scraps of leather, generously bestowed upon Ronen by his community.  In this pivotal moment, we are entrusted with shaping future generations. How will history judge our behavior, our actions. Our Legacy.

Ronen Azulay is an Israeli-born artist, living and working in New York City. Informed by his early career as a men’s fashion designer, his practice examines the role of the consumer in our world of mass production. Using repurposed cast-off denim, leather, and textiles, Azulay’s work actively disrupts the relentless cycle of manufacturing and consumption. With his technical skills and informed eye, Rnen further processes and transforms the materials and incorporates found objects to create a new vernacular in his work.

Tickets or How to Attend: Free to the public
