The Banner project.


On July 20, 2013,CLANDESTINE CULTURE created the Banner Project. The concept of the project was to raise or hang flags around the city of Miami as art installations. The first flag was raised over Julia Tuttle Causeway. The banner was 10 ft x 16 ft, constructed of synthetic fabric, and painted with latex paint. It featured a black and white image of a police officer in riot gear, with a red "Clandestine Culture" logo stamped at the bottom. It was raised on high-mast lighting, at a height of 30 metres (98 ft). The method used to raise the flag has not yet been revealed. The flag remained for five days until it was removed by the Florida Highway patrol. In the summer of 2014 another Banner Project took place, this time in the Miami Marine Stadium. The size and materials were similar to the one used on the Julia Tuttle Causeway. In December of the same year, Clandestine Culture displayed another piece in front of the Miami Beach Convention Center, during Art Basel Miami Beach 2014. Since then no other flag has been placed in the Miami area.
