Dara Friedman: Perfect Stranger

Next date: Nov 18, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

Dara Friedman: Perfect Stranger is organized by PAMM Curator René Morales and presented by Citi with generous support from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Marriott Marquis Miami and Veuve Clicquot is also gratefully acknowledged.

Dara Friedman (b. 1968, Bad Kreuznach, Germany; lives in Miami) uses everyday sights and sounds as the raw material for film and video artworks that reverberate with emotional energy. A former student of the famously rigorous Austrian filmmaker Peter Kubelka, Friedman engages tendencies in 20th-century experimental cinema that call for a radical reduction of the medium to its most essential material properties. The artist crafts each of her films with meticulous care, making precise choices with respect to camerawork, film stock, and editing strategy while taking into consideration every aspect of the presentation of her work in physical space, from the scale of the images to the specific qualities of the playback equipment. In place of linear storylines, her films typically portray straightforward gestures and situations that she has planned out in advance and that unfold according to predetermined rules and guidelines.

Yet for all of Friedman’s strenuous logic and discipline, her approach remains unabashedly sensual and emotive. Bearing rich imagery and a strong emphasis on bodily experience, her films generate moments of high-pitched, cathartic intensity as well as serene, even euphoric interludes. In recent years, Friedman has increasingly explored the charged boundaries between the public and private spheres, working with musicians, dancers, actors, and other individuals selected through casting calls and auditions. These experimental collaborations dovetail with the artist’s longstanding endeavor to use her work as a means of engendering empathy while pounding on the walls that separate viewer from subject, artist from audience, self from other.

Spanning more than 20 years of creative production, this immersive exhibition is Friedman’s first mid-career survey, and the largest presentation of her work to date.

From the truer world of the other: Typewriter Art from PAMM’s

Next date: Nov 18, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

From the truer world of the other: Typewriter Art from PAMM’s Collection presents a selection of works acquired from the Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry through a combined gift and purchase made possible by the generosity of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Ruth and Marvin A. Sackner, and the Sackner Family Partnership. Featuring the work of approximately 15 individuals—including Carl Andre, Henri Chopin, Dom Sylvester Houédard, d.a. levy, Françoise Mairey, and Gustave Morin—the exhibition explores how artists and poets have transformed the typewriter, a machine for office work, into a tool for experimental artistic and poetic expression. Harnessing the machine’s inherent precision while defying its physical limits, these artists create a dizzying array of optical effects and novel forms of geometric abstraction.

From the truer world of the other: Typewriter Art from PAMM’s Collection is organized by PAMM Assistant Curator Jennifer Inacio and PAMM Curator René Morales.

Saturday, Nov 18, 2017 at 7:00 PM - English

Miami Book Fair and the Adrienne Arsht Center present Joe Biden: Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and Purpose

Miami Book Fair and the Adrienne Arsht Center are pleased to present former Vice President Joe Biden’s Miami appearance to discuss his memoir, Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship and Purpose (Flatiron).

Show more >>

Joe Biden has always believed that when given a chance, ordinary people can do extraordinary things. As a scrappy kid from Scranton who rose to the Office of Vice President, he is no exception. During his 45 years of public service, one of Vice President Biden’s greatest strengths has been his ability to bring people together, even in crisis, even across difficult divides, all the while, respecting everybody at the table.

On Saturday, November 18, Vice President Joe Biden will appear in conversation with New York Times bestselling author George Saunders at the Miami Book Fair on the Miami stop of his American Promise Tour. Join Vice President Biden and Saunders for a night of conversation that will go beyond the 24-hour news cycle and 140-character arguments to connect friends and neighbors around the topics that matter most. Vice President Biden will reveal the big political moments of his career, the life-altering choices he made, and the key traits that have helped him persevere through challenges. He will share how the loss of his son Beau tested his resolve, and how he is finding new purpose in a time of uncertainty.

Each $36 ticket includes a copy of Vice President Joe Biden’s forthcoming memoir, Promise Me, Dad: A Year of Hope, Hardship, and Purpose (a $27 value, on sale November 14 from Flatiron Books).

This event is made possible through the generous support of the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Care Center at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine

On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez

Next date: Nov 18, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

This exhibition explores the diverse cultural and emotional landscapes of recent Cuban art. It presents a selection of works by Contemporary Cuban artists donated to the museum by Jorge M. Pérez, the majority from a recent gift of over 170 pieces, as well as works previously gifted to PAMM in 2012, and several recent acquisitions. The selection includes multiple images of the horizon, and these works serve to structure the conceptual framework of the exhibition. The diverse meanings placed on the horizon—which include it as a symbol of longing, containment or desire—radiate across the additional works on view. Produced in various media, such as, painting, sculpture, drawing, video, and installation, these contemplative artworks help generate a discussion regarding the specificities of Cuba’s current physical, social, and political environment, as revealed through each artist’s personal experience and unique aesthetics. This exhibition is made possible by the generosity of Jorge M. Pérez. On the Horizon is presented in three distinct, yet interconnected “chapters,” with a new chapter opening every three months. Chapter 2: Abstracting History is on view untilJanuary 7, 2018.

On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection is organized by PAMM Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander. This exhibition is presented by City National Bank with additional support provided by Cidade Matarazzo, Crystal & Co., and Pomellato.

Steve McQueen: End Credits

Next date: Nov 18, 2017 - click here for time schedule - English

Steve McQueen (b. 1969, London; lives in Amsterdam and London) is a film director, producer, screenwriter, and video artist, whose work focuses on historical narratives, politics, race, and other themes concerning a deep social consciousness. In the video installation End Credits, (2012–2016) McQueen pays homage to the African American singer, actor, and Civil Rights activist Paul Robeson (1898–1976). An anti-imperialist committed to fighting inequality, Robeson was watched in the 1950s and blacklisted by the FBI—the organization that kept an extensive archive on the Civil Rights leader and mass media performer. During the McCarthy era, the FBI compiled thousands of pages on Robeson, now a public archive which McQueen used to create this video. This work shows the significantly censored pages read by male and female voices. McQueen creates a compelling visual composition that brings forth the perverse nature of politically driven discrimination and persecution.

Steve McQueen: End Credits is organized by PAMM Associate Curator María Elena Ortiz. This exhibition is presented by Bank of America with additional support provided by Knight Foundation.

Eddie Palmieri

Saturday, Dec 9, 2017 at 8:00 PM - English

NEA Jazz Master Eddie Palmieri is a bandleader, arranger and composer of salsa and Latin jazz. He is celebrating his 80th birthday by performing a select series of concerts with his Latin Jazz Septet, including this one at The Olympia Theater.

Palmieri’s piano playing skillfully fuses the rhythm of his Puerto Rican heritage with the complexity of his jazz influences: Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, McCoy Tyner as well as his older brother, Charlie Palmieri. Born in Spanish Harlem to Puerto Rican parents and raised in the Bronx, Palmieri learned to play the piano at an early age, and at 13, he joined his uncle’s orchestra, playing timbales.

He played piano with popular New York bands during the 1950s before forming his own band La Perfecta in 1960. Since then he has recorded landmark albums, toured the world and been awarded countless honors – ten Grammys, Latin Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award, and the covered Jazz Master award by the National Endowment or the Arts.

This concert is presented by The Rhythm Foundation and The Olympia Theater.
