Masks & costumes, carnival and tranvestism, the 3rd edition of the ABECEDARIUM took place at Pérez Art Museum (Miami). The Miami edition of the ABECEDARIUM explored twenty-six topics related to the Masquerade Ball from A
to Z: from its fashion accessories to its political agenda, from paganism to secret society. Twenty-six iconic issues from the universe of masquerades, spanning the early 18th century to the present. The Masquerade Ball has traditionally been a cultural product rooted in elegance and luxury. This ABECEDARIUM looked beyond the traditional bounds of its canonic history. It is not by coincidence that the Masquerade Ball has often taken place over several days and nights. Through lust and decadence, it proves to be a subversive act. Indeed, it questions the outcast. It reverses the order of society and its numerous rules, as it is open to a libertarian and permissive temporary society where classes, color and gender can be diversely combined, yet this dis-order only lasts for a determined time lapse, before reverting to the normative rules of society. The Masquerade Ball is also experienced as an element of a complex network of practices. It can represent an ideal synthesis of the arts through music, costumes and rhythm, often articulated and linked with Caribbean tradition. Finally, the masquerade ball is an expanded formulation of a political stance: what needs to be hidden, how and why?
