For her first live performance in the U.S., Trinidadian artist Akuzuru will debut an interdisciplinary work in two acts over two days, evoking themes of fertility and interconnectivity. The complex piece will include horses, as well as dancers who will carry out extended interventions around the exterior and interior of the Museum. Akuzuru describes in her personalized vocabulary, the latest opus in her series of fertility movements, “TRANCE –FORMATIONS: Doucement…… l’Eau por L’ORI” (Slowly……Water for the ORI) as having two “ak-ts” during two successive days.

These panels bring together exceptional scholars, curators, and artists, who respond to diverse geographical, chronological, and cultural contexts of the Caribbean.

Each panel will pair a scholar or curator with an artist. Each of the participants will present an individual paper or talk on the given topic and then have a moderated conversation with one another. The symposium will begin with a Thursday evening reception to celebrate the exhibition, “Caribbean: Crossroads of the World,” during which the public will see the first act of a two part performance by artist Akuzuru. The second act will take place during the symposium on Friday.

“Caribbean: Crossroads of the World,” opening April 18, 2014 at Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), explores the diverse cultural history of the Caribbean and its diaspora, highlighting over two centuries of rarely seen works dating from after the Haitian Revolution to the present. The exhibition is the culmination of nearly a decade of collaborative research and scholarship organized by El Museo del Barrio in conjunction with the Queens Museum and The Studio Museum in Harlem. The Miami presentation, curated for PAMM by guest curator Elvis Fuentes, is a honed reiteration of this critically-acclaimed survey and offers a vital reflection of Miami’s Caribbean community. The exhibition is the centerpiece of a season at PAMM dedicated to Caribbean art, which includes related exhibitions, a two-day symposium, a Caribbean film and video series, major new performances and other related programs and events (pamm.org/calendar).
