Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is pleased to announce an exciting line-up of virtual programs for 2020 Art Week that highlight the museum’s new exhibitions, Allied with Power and MY BODY, MY RULES, while celebrating the unique diversity of Miami’s arts community. 

PAMM’s Art Week schedule includes a variety of free virtual programming, such as a Scholl Lecture with internationally acclaimed Ghanaian-British architect Sir David Adjaye OBE and PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans, who will both discuss Adjaye’s bold artistic vision and practice; a panel discussion titled “Black Diasporic Feminism, Intersectionality, and Solidarity in the Age of Protest,” featuring Allied with Power exhibition artists Genevieve Gaignard, Naudline Pierre, and Deborah Roberts, PAMM Curator María Elena Ortiz, moderated by PAMM Director of Education Marie Vickles; and “Virtual Views: MY BODY, MY RULES,” a special look into the recently opened group exhibition MY BODY, MY RULES, organized by Jennifer Inacio, PAMM Associate Curator.

Throughout Art Week, guests will be able to enjoy the museum’s exhibitions in person, which include: Allied with Power: African and African Diaspora Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection, an exhibition of over 35 works by international African and African Diaspora artists on view from the collection of Jorge M. Pérez; MY BODY, MY RULES, an all-female group exhibition that examines the mainstream portrayal of women, confronting the stereotypes, violence, limitations, and ideals imposed on the disputed image of the female body; What Carried Us Over: Gifts from Gordon W. Bailey, an exhibition of gifts made by Gordon W. Bailey, who has donated 60 artworks to PAMM since 2016; Meleko Mokgosi: Your Trip to Africa, an exhibition of newly commissioned works by the artist that address themes of colonialism, nationalism, tourism, and race; Polyphonic: Celebrating PAMM’s Fund for African American Art, an exhibition showcasing a selection of artworks acquired through PAMM’s Fund for African American Art; and Theaster Gates: Breathing, a video work inspired by the artist’s avid interest in Eastern Buddhism as well as his lifelong personal relationship with traditional gospel music.

The museum has put new safety precautions into place, including required face coverings for guests, one-way paths, and hand-sanitizing stations.
