‘Function + Will’
Function + Will, an installation by Miami artist Luis Garcia-Nerey, is on view through July 13 at General Audience Presents, an alternative art venue at 769 NE 125th St., North Miami.

Viewers are encouraged to climb the stairways on each side of the structure and put their heads through holes that afford a view of the faux forest Garcia-Nerey built inside.
Gallery hours are 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday; 786-489-3889, generalaudiencepresents.com.
