Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) and ArtCenter/South Florida are pleased to co-present the first-ever Latinx Art Sessions, a two-day discussion program—connecting artists, industry leaders, and the greater Miami art scene—that will explore the impact that Latinx art is having on the national landscape and how continued research and academic focus can drive even greater impact.
Sessions will include: a presentation on the significance of Cuban artist Felix-González-Torres, an openly gay man who had a major influence on the politicization of art during the 1980s AIDS crisis; a discussion on the ways U.S. Latinx artists are disrupting racial binaries in America; and a panel exploring what the national Latinx art movement means to Miami where over 60% of the population is Hispanic.
The Latinx Art Sessions are an extension of PAMM’s new Latin American and Latinx Art Fund, a new affiliate group created to support exhibitions and programming at PAMM for Latin American and Latinx artists. This program is organized by María Elena Ortiz, Associate Curator, PAMM, Naiomy Guerrero, DAMLI Curatorial Fellow, PAMM, and Natalia Zuluaga, Director, [NAME] Publications.
The Latinx Art Sessions are free and open to the public. For a full schedule of panels and to sign up to attend, visit: https://latinxsessions.org/program-information/. (Please note that some panels require separate RSVP.)If you love Soul Of Miami, please consider leaving a testimonial.
