“What I really want to tell you...”

Next date: Jun 26, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Presented by The55Project and Curated by Jennifer Inacio with Flávia Macuco Pecego this exhibition explores the cultural, social and political histories of Brazil. The participating artists question these issues and externalize their examinations through art that impact, inspire and engage, becoming their own manifestos of exploration, interrogation, and change. While responding to our contemporary moment, the exhibition highlights ways in which art stimulates and inform new ideas in times of divergent realities.

The exhibition features 14 Brazilian artists: Almandrade, Jonathas de Andrade, Liene Bosquê, Paulo Bruscky, Anna Bella Geiger, Rubens Gerchman, Ivan Grilo, Randolpho Lamonier, Vanderlei Lopes, Gabriela Mutti, Paulo Nazareth, Regina Parra, Rosana Paulino and Mano Penalva.

  • Hosted by Fundación Pablo Atchugarry
  • Produced by The55Project
  • Sponsored by FedEx and Consulate of Brazil in Miami

Beatriz González: A Retrospective

Next date: Jun 26, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Beatriz Gonzalez: A Retrospective will be the first large-scale U.S. retrospective of the work of Bogota-based artist Beatriz Gonzalez (b. 1938, Bucaramanga, Colombia). At 81, Gonzalez is not only an internationally celebrated Colombian artist but also one of the few extant representatives of the so-called "radical women" generation from Latin America. Despite the fact that it spans over six decades of intensive research, her groundbreaking production is, for the most part, unfamiliar to audiences in the United States. One of the most comprehensive displays of the artist's work to date, this retrospective seeks to remedy this lag by presenting approximately 150 works, with examples from the early 1960s through the present, all of which embody the full scope of Gonzalez's oeuvre.

Show more >>

The purpose of Beatriz Gonzalez: A Retrospective is thus to display the full breadth, range and sophistication of the artist's practice while seeking to dispel misconceptions about its position in the larger context of both Colombian and international Postwar art. Achieving this goal, however, entails rejecting upfront the generalized view of her work as a regional manifestation of international Pop Art in favor of a more nuanced interpretation of her practice vis-a-vis the cultural context from which it emerged. Working in Bogota, and thus impervious to the emergence of a Pop Art movement, Gonzalez's aim was not to celebrate postwar consumer culture but rather to investigate Colombian middle-class taste as well as the popular desire for and consumption of well-known European artworks. Declaring herself "a provincial painter," she called into question the subordinate relationship between marginal localities such as Colombia and the hegemonic centers of artistic and cultural production represented by Europe and the United States. Her work thus embodies both a reaction to this uneven relationship as well as a fresh starting point. From this point of view, Gonzalez's objective does not end with the predictable (and rather exhausted) critique of representation implicit in any form of appropriation; her project, instead, is grounded in a broader assessment of the state of culture in her homeland and its relationship to the persistent legacy of colonialism.

Beatriz Gonzalez: A Retrospective will offer an expansive look at the artist's unique and influential practice. Organized in a loose chronological order, the exhibition will include the artist's most iconic works, many of which have rarely been seen outside of Colombia. In this way it will trace the different stages in Gonzalez's creative and intellectual explorations of mass-media images as vehicles for her extremely personal approach to representing key facets of Colombian society and its relationship to Europe and the United States. These range from two-dimensional oil on canvas paintings, drawings, silkscreen prints, and curtains, to three-dimensional recycled furniture (beds, tables, night tables, cribs, armoires), and everyday objects (trays, TVs, cigar boxes). The works will be culled from the artists' personal collection as well as from public and private collections in Colombia, the United States and Europe.

In addition to her pioneering work with images recycled upon furniture and other supports, the exhibition also brings to light Gonzalez's political production of the last three decades when she systematically chronicled the violence perpetuated by "la violencia, her country's" decades long civil war, with an increased focus on indigenous, rural and displaced communities. While continuing to draw primarily from newspaper images and art historical sources, her recent paintings have become more complex in terms of composition as well as the use of collage to paint-in images taken from diverse media narratives and sources. While always innovative and unpredictable in terms of subject matter and artistic strategies, the depth and intensity of Gonzalez's sui generis approach to individual and collective grief is unparalleled in contemporary art.

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species

Next date: Jun 26, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species is a virtually interactive, digital exhibition of commissioned works by Miami-based artist Felice Grodin. The series employs the technology of augmented reality, 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.

Show video >>

By drawing on her training as an architect, Grodin analyzes the relationship between physical and mental territories. She explores the mutable within landscape, architecture, and our urban surroundings. Featuring four site-specific digital works, Invasive Species virtually interacts with PAMM's architecture and transforms the museum's environment as a response to Miami's ecological reality. For example, in Terrafish (2017–18), Grodin overlaps PAMM's hanging gardens on the waterfront terrace with the translucent body of the digital species she created a work suggestive of nonnative jellyfish found in South Florida waters. In Field Report [2518] (2017–18), cryptic signs run over the entrance grounds of the museum carrying a subliminal message from the future. By drawing on the destructive impact of invasive species and creating new digital environments, 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.

Liliana Porter: El hombre con el hacha y otras situaciones breves

Next date: Jun 26, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

In its scale and complexity, El hombre con el hacha y otras situaciones breves – Venecia 2017 is one of Liliana Porter's most ambitious projects to date. The piece serves as a form of retrospective, as it contains many of the characters, groupings, or situations that have appeared repeatedly in Porter's works over the last three decades. The installation takes its name from the tiny figure of a man with an axe, shown hacking away at an elongated pile of fragmented objects. The viewer's eye follows this array of broken pieces as they shift dramatically in scale, from dust-size particles, to chips of broken china, to damaged figurines, to larger objects that include plates and chairs, and finally to a full-size broken piano.

Show more >>

The viewer will notice several old clocks of varying sizes. These symbols of linear time are shown completely broken apart, their white faces, circular metal casings, and interiors spilling outward in disarray. Central to Porter's practice is an investigation of time. She is specifically interested in how, as time passes, the line between reality and imagination becomes increasingly tenuous, as the current moment mixes with memories from the past that are often exaggerated in scale, fragmented, or broken. Porter is interested in how time becomes recorded not only in memories, but also in objects, images, and literature.

Historical figures and symbols appear throughout the installation. A plastic toy replica of the car in which President John F. Kennedy was assassinated is exhibited. Nearby an old hammer is placed casually on a sickle, tools and symbols of the industrial worker and the peasant farmer used in international Communism and on the flag of the Soviet Union. Elsewhere appears a broken porcelain head of the Chinese Communist leader Mao. These and other representations of the past emerge haphazardly, their ideologies and historical positions coexisting in the same space.

A tiny figure carrying a suitcase appears alone, isolated in one section. He stands between two lines that twist behind him, forming a path he has apparently been following. This is "the traveler," another important player who has appeared consistently in many of Porter's prints, paintings, photographs, films, and installations since the 1980s. A classic trope for the beginning of a story, the traveler is also often an immigrant, a refugee, someone displaced. In a world where we are increasingly from one place and living in another, and in a city like Miami that is populated with many immigrants and travelers, Porter's philosophical reflections resonate strongly, while they simultaneously and persistently confound.

Pedro Neves Marques: A Mordida

Next date: Jun 26, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Pedro Neves Marques (b. 1984, Lisbon; lives in New York) examines clashes among competing anthropologies, politics of nature, technology, and gender. He employs science fiction and speculative storytelling as key tools to produce works that range from fictional dramas to theoretical films and writings.

Show more >>

A Mordida (The Bite) Neves Marques's first solo museum presentation in the United States encompasses an audio-visual installation featuring a set of new films commissioned by PAMM, digital animations, and an ambient sound piece produced by London-based musician Fraencis. Based on research done at a laboratory for genetically modified mosquitos in São Paulo, Neves Marques creates fictional and abstract narratives that question the role of gender in the history of science. The installation evokes an eerie feeling of collapse between biological epidemics and political crisis, specifically seeking to reflect the current alarming spread of intolerant conservative politics in Brazil.

The control and militarization of gender portrayed in the mosquito laboratory is paralleled through the films' three main characters a man, a woman, and a transgender woman as they navigate an intimate relationship. Veering between the sterile environment of the lab and scenes that depict nature and contact between bodies, Neves Marques poetically suggests intimacy, affection, and acceptance as sensitivities to be preserved in times of hostility.

Pedro Neves Marques received an MA in art and politics from Goldsmiths, University of London, and a BA in fine arts from University of Lisbon. He has had solo presentations of his work at Museu Coleção Berardo, Lisbon; e-flux, New York (with Mariana Silva); and EDP Foundation, Lisbon (with Andre Romão). His work has been included in group presentations including the 2018 Triennial: Songs for Sabotage, New Museum, New York, and at SculptureCenter, New York; Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, New York; Anthology Film Archives, New York; Galerie nationale du Jeu de Paume, Paris; Kadist Art Foundation, Paris; Tate Modern, London; V-A-C Foundation, Venice; Parco Arte Vivente, Turin; Casa do Povo, São Paulo; Sursock Museum, Beirut; Times Museum, Guangzhou; Fundacion Botin, Santander, Spain; and Serralves Museum, Porto; and Museum of Art, Architecture and Technology (MAAT), Lisbon. Neves Marques is the editor of The Forest and the School: Where to Sit at the Dinner Table? (2014), an anthology on Brazilian Antropofagia from an anthropological perspective, and author of two short story collections, most recently Morrer na America (2017). He is cofounder of inhabitants-tv.org, an online channel for exploratory video and documentary reporting. He lives and works in New York.

Fraencis is a music producer, sound researcher and former psychiatrist working across the fields of experimental electronic music, affect and embodied music cognition. He is currently undertaking a MA in music at Goldsmiths, University of London.

“Reconstructing Identity: An Exploration of Identity and Diaspora Through Artistic Practice” encompasses the work of artists connected by a shared interest in the interrogation of identity when the sense of place is ever changing.

Utilizing varying materials and techniques, the work tells multiple stories. Some may observe cultural differences in the experiences of those within the black & brown diasporas. Others may explore aesthetic, social, cultural, and political subjects that examine where identity and sense of place., thus allowing for a better understanding of the communities we inhabit.

The featured local artists include Christopher Carter, Kandy Lopez-Moreno, Duwane Coates, Sharon Norwood, Onajide Shabaka, Rhea Leonard, Adler Guerrier, Asser Saint Val, Morel Doucet, Franciso Maso, and T.Elliot Mansa.

Whitney Humphreys

Next date: Jun 26, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Locust Projects presents The Command Center by Whitney Humphreys, a current dual MFA degree-seeking student at San Francisco Art Institute. She is the sixth student featured in our summer LAB MFA open call since 2013.

The installation in Locust Projects Project Room allows visitors to enter an alternate plane of reality, where a distant and mysterious machine known as the Rocket with Hoopskirt is in a perpetual state of pre-departure, monitored from across the country. The work extends and recontextualizes her ongoing MFA thesis focus, centrally figuring this skirt-clad model of rocketry pioneer, Robert H. Goddard’s so-named, formative rocket engine test. Built from found and recycled materials, the station reimagines systems of control by inviting engagement yet denying manipulation. Jumbled streams of imagery and noise emissions engulf the space in obscure, but familiar messages.

Show more >>

The artist’s site-specific construction addresses the role that Florida itself has played in the history of rocketry and the impact the project of space travel has made on the state’s cultural, political, economic, and physical landscape. It offers a portal into narratives that embody intersections between and across gendered associations that are culturally attributed to the mechanical. And, engaging directly with both personal and collective histories, this project examines the complex web of influences that have shaped both real and imagined relationships between human and non-human beings and objects.

About the Artist

Whitney Humphreys is a San Francisco Bay Area artist and teacher currently pursuing a double Masters in San Fransisco Art Institute’s Dual Degree program, where she has held the position of 2018 Co-Director for the Legion of Graduate Students. Upon completion, she will earn an MFA in studio practice, with a focus in printmaking and sculptural installation, as well as an MA in the History and Theory of Contemporary Art with her thesis titled Gendered Machines.

Hew Locke: For Those in Peril on the Sea

Jul 21, 2019 to Sep 1, 2019 - various times - 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.

Real Utopias: Brasília: Life After Design (2017)

Tuesday, Aug 6, 2019 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM - English

Located 2000 kilometers from the Amazon and 18 hours from Rio, the city of Brasilia the capital of Brazil is a mythical place: a concrete utopia born out of the desert. In 1956 at the rebirth of Brazilian democracy, visionary architect Oscar Niemeyer and urbanist Lucio Costa invented an urban plan and structures that would attempt to micromanage the daily activity of human life. The unabashed goal was to create the space that would birth "the new Brazilian citizen." Now the stark beauty of the city acts as a backdrop to isolation, changing values, and the dynamic power and politics of today's Brazil. The haunting ambience of Niemeyer and Costa's dream echoes through the lives of a range of characters, each trying to make their mark in the city of today: Sergio, the stalwart urbanist who defends the city plan but knows it must adapt; Helize, studying to become a federal civil servant the dream of so many Brazilian students and Willians, a street vendor by day, who tries to find meaningful connection in a city built to divide. Brasilia: Life After Design takes us to a city rarely seen by the international viewer: what is it like to live in someone else's idea?

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.
