All That Is Solid

Next date: Aug 17, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

When considering the idea of form and function, a conversation arises between objects that exist as façade-inaccessible metonymic references to that which is concrete. ALL THAT IS SOLID exploits this concept to examine both social and economic development and the implications on urban growth as it relates to Miami's creative ecology.

Coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the Bauhaus movement, ALL THAT IS SOLID pays homage to this brief yet defining moment in history that succeeded in pollinating disparate relationships between design, architecture, and performance. The exhibition highlights artists who converge at the intersection of form, function, material, and action.

ALL THAT IS SOLID is presented by MDDA and co-organized by Miami collaborative groups Ground Control and Placeholder, collectively known as GCP.

Hew Locke: For Those in Peril on the Sea

Next date: Aug 17, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

This exhibition presents the second iteration of For Those in Peril on the Sea (2011), an installation by Hew Locke (b. 1959, Edinburgh; lives in London) first shown in 2013 during PAMM's inaugural programming. Consisting of dozens of scaled-down replicas of ships suspended from the ceiling, the installation creates the impression of a massive exodus taking place throughout the architectural space above the viewer. It features a broad range of vessel types, from cigarette boats, catamarans, and cruise liners to ragged fishing skiffs and timeworn cargo ships. In light of Miami's history as the site for numerous waves of immigration particularly from the Caribbean, and specifically by sea For Those in Peril on the Sea will have a particular resonance for the Museum's audiences. With its significant links to the South Florida community, this installation, part of Pérez Art Museum Miami's permanent collection, promises a powerful experience for visitors.

Anna Gibson’s Bio:
Anna is predominantly self-taught in what she sees and the technical knowledge she has. She calls it a gift, but just does her work naturally and it turns out. Anna still loves learning new photography techniques. She loves to photograph locally and often heads to the beach long before others even think of waking. “The best shots of the sunrise, after all, start roughly an hour before the sun peeks over the horizon. I’ve gotten some of my best photos in the rain and the bitter cold and the sauna-caliber heat of a Florida day,” she said. When commissioned to do a particular piece you will find her in the same spot again and again, vying for the perfect lighting or perfect colors for what she envisions. “I wouldn’t quite call it an obsession, but some people might,” Anna said.

Sam Carfora’s Bio:
Sami has always felt drawn to capture moments, well before ever owning a camera. Her drive to tell as many stories as she can is what propelled her into the art form of photography. Each of her photos is backed by an internal need to seek out beauty, to put truth to pictures, and to convey raw emotion. The goal of her pieces is that the viewer will experience the same feeling she had while taking it; that in the cross-hairs of creativity and perfect timing, a connection between artist and audience will be formed. Sami feels that the ultimate compliment is to have her art displayed in someone’s home – to have been invited into their sacred space.

Diago: The Pasts of this Afro-Cuban Present
(October 24, 2019 – January 19, 2020)

A leading member of the new Afro-Cuban cultural movement, visual artist Juan Roberto Diago (b. 1971) has produced a body of work that offers a revisionist history of the Cuban nation. His “history,” a term that he frequently inserts in his works using the visual language of graffiti, contradicts the official narrative of a racially harmonious nation created through the selfless efforts of generous white patriots. Diago’s Cuba is a nation built on pain, rape, greed, and the enslavement of millions of displaced Africans, a nation still grappling with the long-term effects of slavery and colonialism. To him, slavery is not the past, but a daily experience of racism and discrimination.

Africa is not a root, but a wellspring of cultural and personal affirmation, the ancestors that sustain him in his journey. This exhibit examines Diago’s creative work over the course of his entire career. It traces his singular efforts to construct new pasts, the pasts required to explain the racial tensions of contemporary Cuba, the pasts of this Afro-Cuban present. Guest curated by Dr. Alejandro de la Fuente (Robert Woods Bliss Professor of Latin American History and Economics, Professor of African and African American Studies, Director of the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, and Chair of the Cuba Studies Program at Harvard University).

José Carlos Martinat: American Echo Chamber

Dec 4, 2019 to Jan 26, 2020 - various times - English

For PAMM's double-height gallery, Jose Carlos Martinat created American Echo Chamber (2018), an installation that responds to the amplification and reinforcement of ideas in the current social and political landscape. This large-scale work is composed of mechanical light sculptures that collectively generate a dramatic and entertaining space for visual consumption. The sculptures are inspired by symbols of both American and Peruvian cultures ranging from historical images such as the political cartoon "Join, or Die" attributed to founding father Benjamin Franklin to popular internet memes. These symbols are often composed of images related to violence, manipulation, racism, or migration. The artist also includes artisanal pyrotechnic castle fireworks from Lima. By creating a space that amplifies the consumption of these symbols, Martinat compares the contemporary political scene to an echo chamber, emphasizing a dynamic in which people seek information from media outlets that reinforce their beliefs as an unconscious exercise of validation and prejudice.
