Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is pleased to announce an exciting lineup of events, exhibitions, and programming for 2019 Miami Art Week that highlights the museum’s dedication to Miami’s diverse arts community, while igniting global conversations and celebrating the closing of the museum’s 35th anniversary year. 

“We’re excited to close out PAMM’s 35th year with a dynamic Miami Art Week program, including a range of exhibitions on view and as always our celebration, PAMM Presents, on Thursday evening,” said PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans. “Our goal at PAMM is to lead the conversation on modern and contemporary art in our city, while showcasing our position in that discussion from Miami’s rich cultural landscape, representing the artistic diversity that is integral to our city. Teresita Fernández is an artist of the world with roots in Miami where she grew up; Purvis Young is a hometown hero whose work is contextualized amongst other artists from the American South in What Carried Us Over: Gifts from Gordon W. Bailey; The Other Side of Now: Foresight in Contemporary Caribbean Art surveys new voices in our region; and Zhao Gang and Jose Carlos Martinat’s solo presentations offer a worldly and lively take on today’s world.”

PAMM Presents, the museum’s signature Miami Art Week celebration, will take place at PAMM on Thursday, December 5 from 8–11pm, featuring headliner Jamila Woods with an opening act by Ama Lou, a DEFY Production. Throughout the evening, guests from the worlds of art, fashion, business, and philanthropy, including PAMM members and donors, will enjoy drinks, live music, and dancing on the museum’s waterfront terrace.

Guests will also be able to view the museum’s exhibitions, which include: Teresita Fernández: Elemental, a monumental retrospective featuring more than 50 of the artist’s large-scale sculptures, installations, and mixed media works that challenge definitions of landscape and the psychology of looking; What Carried Us Over: Gifts from Gordon W. Bailey, featuring more than 60 works donated to the museum from collector Gordon W. Bailey; The Other Side of Now: Foresight in Contemporary Caribbean Art, which looks to the future of the Caribbean region through works by 14 artists from the Caribbean diaspora; Zhao Gang: History Painting, in which the Chinese-American artist explores the multicultural aspects of both the east and the west; and José Carlos Martinat: American Echo Chamber, an exhibition in PAMM’s double-height gallery of 15 kinetic light sculptures that explore the current state of our political and cultural landscape. 

PAMM will also host a series of dynamic programming and events for visitors during Miami Art Week, including an art talk with Teresita Fernández on Tuesday, December 3, where she will be joined by PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans, PAMM Associate Curator María Elena Ortiz, and Seattle Art Museum Director Amada Cruz for a discussion about her work and its relationship to nature, history, and perception of place; After the Fracture on Wednesday, December 4, a collaborative performance created by interdisciplinary artists Marvin Fabien and Nyugen Smith, in conversation with and a continuation of Smith's work within The Other Side of Now: Foresight in Contemporary Caribbean Art; and the first-ever PAMM Art Week VIP Lounge, open Tuesday, December 3 through Thursday, December 5, where PAMM members can sip, socialize, and unwind from the Art Week madness.
