Miami, FL (JANUARY 2013) – Ricart Gallery’s latest exhibition is a seductive boundary pushing exploration of sex, fame, and curiosity including works by renowned photographers Tiziano Magni & Carter B. Smith opening Saturday, February 8th from 6-10pm.

The exhibition “Curiosity Killed the Cat” is a collaboration of photography, live dance, and film including famous photographs of Kate Moss, Elle Macpherson, Laetitia Casta by fashion and fine art photographer Tiziano Magni. Carter B. Smith will exhibit his most provocative images and a Curiosity Booth with a live dancer to evoke inquisitiveness.

“Curiosity Killed The Cat is a personal exploration navigating through this hyper-accelerated reality fueled by fame, sex, decimated nature, curious geometries and getting lost in the frivolity of it all,” according to Smith.
