The Exile Experience: A Journey to Freedom

Monday, Sep 24, 2018 from 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM - English

The Exile Experience: Journey to Freedom is a pictorial account of the struggles that the Cuban exile community has endured since Fidel Castro's rise to power, and the successes they have achieved in the United States. Having covered the Cuban exile community and its struggle for freedom extensively throughout the years, Miami Dade College and The Miami Herald Media Company now present this journalistic chronology, which showcases the spirit and accomplishments of the Cuban American community. The permanent exhibition is housed at the College’s National Historic Landmark Freedom Tower, itself central to the story of Cubans in the United States.

MDC’s Freedom Tower was operated by the U.S. Government as a reception center for Cuban refugees from 1962 to 1974. “The building is significant because it represents the important story of the Cuban exodus to America and resettlement during the Cold War,” reports the U.S. Department of the Interior, which has also called the Freedom Tower the “Ellis Island of the South.” Though it operated in that capacity for only 12 years, the building has become an icon representing the faith that democracy brought to troubled lives, the generosity of the American people and a hopeful beginning that assured thousands a new life in a new land.

The Writing on the Wall

Monday, Sep 24, 2018 various times - English

Hank Willis Thomas and Dr. Baz Dreisinger

A collaborative installation, The Writing on the Wall: Hank Willis Thomas and Dr. Baz Dreisinger presents essays, poems, letters, stories, diagrams, and notes written by individuals in prison around the world, from the United States and Australia to Brazil, Norway and Uganda. During her years teaching in US and international prisons, Professor Dreisinger actively collected the hand-written and typed pieces.

Show more >>

The Writing on the Wall calls attention to the prison crisis in the United States as well as the Western modern prison system, which has spread across the globe. Just as mass incarceration is a growing global phenomenon, The Writing on the Wall constantly evolves and shifts focus based on the material written by those living behind bars in prisons around the world.

This exhibition is a part of the For Freedoms initiative founded by artists Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman. For Freedoms is a platform for civic engagement, discourse, and direct action for artists in the United States. Inspired by artist Norman Rockwell’s paintings of Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Four Freedoms (1941)—freedom of speech, freedom of worship, freedom from want, and freedom from fear— For Freedoms uses art to encourage and deepen public explorations of freedom in the 21st century.

We are grateful to members of the Frost Art Museum for their support of this exhibition. The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum FIU receives ongoing support from the Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Cultural Affairs Council, the Miami-Dade County Mayor and Board of County Commissioners; the Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs, the Florida Council on Arts and Culture and the State of Florida.

Karen Rifas Deceptive Constructions

Monday, Sep 24, 2018 various times - English

For more than thirty years, Miami-based artist Karen Rifas has amassed a body of work that endeavors to understand and re-imagine space. Well known for her minimal cord and leaf installations, and precise, methodical line drawings, in 2016, Rifas began a focused exploration into the constructive possibilities of color. Employing densely hued shapes and irregular lines, Rifas creates spaces that oscillate between the two- and three-dimensional. Deceptive Constructions surveys this recent body of work for the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in over 10 years. Through variegated floor and sculptural installations, works on paper, and wood panel, Rifas uses a concise language of richly contrasted color to alter our perception of space.

Karen Rifas (Chicago, b. 1942) lives and works in Miami and is a professor at New World School of the Arts. Recent solo exhibitions have been held at: Emerson Dorsch (2017), Meeting House Gallery (2016), De La Cruz Collection (2010), Pinnacle Gallery, Savannah College of Art and Design (2007), Polk Museum of Art (2004), and Museo De Arte Comtemporaneo, Panama City (1993).

william cordova now’s the time: narratives of southern alchemy

Monday, Sep 24, 2018 various times - English

william cordova now’s the time: narratives of southern alchemy is the first extensive museum survey of cultural practitioner william cordova (b. 1969, Lima; lives in Miami, Lima, and New York). It presents a selection of works embodying the three main themes that have inspired the work of this celebrated Miami artist for decades: transmission, alchemy, and transcendence. In his nationally and internationally recognized drawings, sculptures, installations, and collaborative projects, cordova collapses linear concepts of time and history to address contemporary notions of displacement. Like an ethnographer, he extensively researches symbols, people and the common threads that binds different cultures to one another, foregoing the boundaries between the past and the present. Then, he uses ephemeral and precarious materials to create elegant works that challenge traditional Western typologies. Striving to create a flexible and critical space for the understanding of our contemporary moment, he builds bridges between various intersecting narratives such as architecture, cinema, literature, and music. This exhibition will be the artist's first ever U.S. survey exhibition and will be accompanied by an extensive museum catalogue, available at PAMM Shop.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species

Monday, Sep 24, 2018 various times - English

Augmented Reality (AR) Exhibition

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is a virtually interactive, digital exhibition of commissioned works by Miami-based artist Felice Grodin. The series employs the immersive technology of augmented reality (AR), and is accessible to visitors using iOS devices in PAMM’s outdoor areas and in the Padma and Raj Vattikuti Learning Theater on the museum’s first floor. This AR project is made possible thanks to a generous grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.

Influenced by geophilosophy—a field of thought shaped by Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari that analyzes the relationship between physical and mental territories—Grodin draws on her training as an architect to explore the mutable within landscape, architecture, and her urban surroundings. Felice Grodin: Invasive Species interacts with PAMM’s architecture, evolving and transforming the museum’s environment for the duration of the exhibition.

Featuring a total of four digital works, the show launches with two AR site-specific works—Mezzbug and Terrafish (both 2017)—that engage with and virtually enhance the museum’s building. In Terrafish, Grodin overlaps PAMM’s hanging gardens on the waterfront terrace with the translucent body of a digital species she created, which is suggestive of nonnative jellyfish found in South Florida waters. By drawing on the destructive impact of invasive species and creating a new digital environment, Grodin highlights the transformative and unstable state of our ecosystem, speculating about a not-so-distant future affected by climate change and overtaken by uncanny creatures.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is an augmented reality exhibition that can be viewed via the PAMM App which is available for free from the App Store on iPhone or iPad. iOS 11.0 or later. Compatible with iPhone 6s, iPhone SE, iPad Pro, and newer.

Femme à la montre by Pablo Picasso

Monday, Sep 24, 2018 various times - English

Femme à la montre (Woman with a Watch) is a classic example of Pablo Picasso’s highly prized works from 1932. The subject of this painting, Marie-Thérèse Walter, is among his most revered. Between 1927 and 1937 he made countless pictures of Walter, who was his lover at the time and is known as his “golden muse.” The subject of a current museum survey in London—the year 1932—was a particularly fruitful year in Picasso’s production. Most of the works produced in that year are in the collections of major museums in the world’s largest capitals; PAMM is fortunate to be able to present this important work on loan from a private collector.

Show more >>

Born in 1881 in Málaga, Spain, Picasso created the distinct look and line in his paintings and drawings beginning in the early 1900s in Barcelona, and then in Paris, where he settled for good in 1904. The artist appropriated and invented styles from the beginning of the 20th century until his death in 1973, constantly challenging himself and other artists to create something truly new in the spirit of modernism. Influenced by African art he encountered in Paris, Picasso, with fellow painter Georges Braque, originated the style known as Cubism, characterized by geometric shapes that often contort an object or figure as if it is being seen from many different angles at once. He was also an integral part of the foundation of Surrealism, while always working from a representational, tangible image. By any account, Picasso was a prodigious artist and perhaps the most influential of the 20th century. It is estimated that he made 50,000 artworks in his lifetime. Yet it is the quality of his work that has dictated his dedicated place in art history.

Picasso’s voluptuous and sensual pictures of Walter mark a departure from his Cubism phase. This portrait shows the young woman from the front and side, more or less clothed, unlike many of the nudes he made of her. An exposed breast perhaps hints at the erotic quality of many of his portraits of her. Here, he synthesizes the softness of the figure and the hardness of the chair into one full picture. But, it is her single, unmistakably clear eye that gazes out at us that suggests the inner life of the sitter, lover, and muse.

Picasso’s Femme à la montre (1932) is on loan from Emily Fisher Landau. The exhibition of this work of art has been made possible in part by the generous support of Leslie and Greg Ferrero.

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center Presents David I. Muir’s Reggae Ree

Monday, Sep 24, 2018 from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM - English

The Pompano Beach Cultural Center is proud to present a dynamic exhibit that celebrates the music, message and masters of reggae. David I Muir's collection of 26 iconic reggae-music performance photos will be on display at the venue from August 10 through September 30, 2018. The collection, appropriately entitled Reggae Reel - Moments in Music features stunning images of reggae royalty including Marcia Griffiths and Buju Banton, today's hottest artists including Tarrus Riley, Mavado and Chronixx, plus rising stars like Koffee and Sevana. The experiential exhibit will also feature a video installation and graphic montages featuring select lyrics. In addition, the Center is presenting a concert by Rootz of Music entitled, The American Roots of Jamaican Music on August 26, 2018.

“I am thrilled to bring this collection to The Pompano Beach Cultural Center,” said Muir, whose photographs have been featured in national and international exhibits as well as the coffee table book, Pieces of Jamaica. "I've had a love affair with reggae for as long as I can remember. I took most of these images for my own, selfish gratification. Now, it's a welcome pleasure that I'm able to share them in this way.”Muir, a former disk jockey, manager of music talent and concert promoter, had a unique vantage point when taking these photos, and his love of the genre and its messages are evident in every shot. “The lyrics in reggae music are a path to the truth,” he said.

“They teach us how to love and unite. Through this music and through the strength of the Jamaican culture, we can learn many lessons. That is why this exhibit, especially at this time, is so important.”Reggae originated in Jamaica in the 1960s as a rhythmic language giving voice to a voiceless people. At its origin, its lyrics shared messages of peace, unity, and the protest of injustice. Today, it is embraced worldwide, conveying love, pride, struggle, and every human emotion in every language. Just as the featured artist-messengers share their stories through the music, Muir shares the passion and power of their performance in still shots. ​About David I. MuirDavid I. Muir, who was born in Jamaica, is a photo artist, author, entrepreneur and community leader living in South Florida. His photo collections, including the critically acclaimed Pieces of Jamaica and its accompanying coffee table book, have toured in national and international exhibitions.

Tracing the Red Thread

Monday, Sep 24, 2018 various times - English

TheMuseum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) North Miami will present the exhibition “Tracing the Red Thread,” by distinguished South Florida-based artist Mira Lehr. The multimedia, museum-wide installation will reflect Lehr’s eco-feminist philosophy, the concept of mankind working with nature rather than dominating over it. Lehr uses the classical myth of Ariadne to explore the beauty, fragility and interconnectedness of the endangered aquatic ecosystem of the South Florida coast.

In Lehr’s mesmerizing installation, two and three-dimensional works evoke dense thickets of mangroves, the dangerous beauty of jellyfish and the ethereal luminosity of the coral reef. Lehr creates a mysterious world whose seductive beauty reminds us not only of the gifts that nature gives us, but of the importance of preserving them for the future generations.

Show more >>

Comprised of a variety of multimedia works, “Tracing the Red Thread” focuses on climate change and environmental issues as a major factor facing mankind today. The exhibition draws on the lessons Lehr learned six decades ago working with Buckminster Fuller on his “World Game Project.” As Lehr learned in her work with Fuller, the earth must be seen as a unified island within the oceans so one is made aware of the interconnectedness of all life.

Admission to MOCA is $5, but free for MOCA members and North Miami residents. An artist reception will take place on Thursday, Sept. 13, with an admission cost of $10 to the general public, free to MOCA members and North Miami residents.
