Sisters

Sunday, Jun 16, 2019 at 3:00 PM - English

Sisters provides an intriguing chronicle of the relationship between two African-American women who represent opposite ends of the “color spectrum”. Darker skinned Olivia spends her days in an executive office on the 20th floor, while lighter skinned Cassie spends hers in a housekeeping uniform. Despite the fact they they have met only in passing, the seemingly irrational contempt they share denotes a long history neither of them may consciously recognize.

All too soon, the women find themselves stuck in the empty building, as an unexpected snowfall and a power outage turn traffic into a nightmare and public transportation into a nonstarter. Although they have race and gender in common, on an ordinary day, these two would probably never talk, except in the most perfunctory way. But that’s not an option, marooned as they are.

Cost: $26 ($21 students and seniors).

Felice Grodin: Invasive Species

Sunday, Jun 16, 2019 various times - 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.

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.

Pedro Neves Marques: A Mordida

Sunday, Jun 16, 2019 various times - 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.

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.

Beatriz González: A Retrospective

Sunday, Jun 16, 2019 various times - 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.
