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

Next date: Mar 18, 2018 - 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.

Kindertransport by Diane Samuels

Sunday, Mar 18, 2018 at 2:00 PM - English

Curtain Call Playhouse presents the deeply moving story about the psychological scars left on some of the 10,000 unaccompanied Jewish children who were evacuated to England prior to the war against Germany. This story moves between the past and present time, Eva as a child, and Evelyn, now and adult. We discover the agony of separating a child from her parents and the consequence of that choice, an act of sacrifice that also wreaks a devastating result. Identity- What happens when you deny it, or when it is denied you?

  • Ticket Prices: Adults $20.00, Students $10
  • Adult Preferred Seating $30.00
  • $15 for groups of 4 or more purchased at one time

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

Next date: Mar 18, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

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

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.

Moliere's Tartuffe - Broward College Theatre Main Stage Production

Next date: Mar 22, 2018 - click here for time schedule - English

At once wildly amusing and morally contemplative, Tartuffe is a comedy of virtue and hypocrisy. Set in a mansion in seventeenth-century France, the title character Tartuffe has hoodwinked the wealthy homeowner, Orgon, into believing his every word and even regarding him as saint-like. Orgon's family recognizes Tartuffe's true hypocritical and manipulating manner, and hilarity ensues as they attempt to convince Orgon otherwise.

María José Arjona: All the Others in Me

Saturday, Apr 14, 2018 at 8:00 PM - English

Taking the form of an unconsummated striptease with a multicultural pop soundtrack, Colombian artist María José Arjona’s performance All the Others in Me functions as a bridge between “miss-understandings.” It refuses to point at anything specific or resolve these misunderstandings, but instead offers a panoramic vista on our perception of each other across distances.

André Lepecki: In the Event of Encounter (FREE)

Friday, Apr 20, 2018 from 7:30 PM to 9:00 PM - English

This lecture-performance addresses the notion of “encounter” as essential to a politics and an aesthetics of the commons. By drawing from several philosophical and political traditions that have analyzed the ethics and politics of the encounter, and by invoking artistic propositions that bring into the world improbable events (particularly in performance art and experimental choreography) André Lepecki will consider how the event of encounter precipitates groundings for living away from the necropolitical logic of our current imperial, colonial and murderous neoliberal monohumanism.

Anna Maria Maiolino: Entrevidas (Between Lives)

Saturday, Apr 21, 2018 from 8:00 PM to 9:30 PM - English

As an immigrant coming of age in a politically unstable Brazil, Anna Maria Maiolino searched for a new language to articulate everyday human existence. One of the most important artists of her generation, Maiolino’s multidisciplinary practice has always sought to connect art and life, to give structure to primordial experiences of language, self, and the body. The performance-installation Entrevidas (Between Lives), was originally conceived in 1981, during the period between the end of Brazil’s military dictatorship and its return to democracy.

NIGHTWISH: Decades North America 2018

Sunday, Apr 22, 2018 at 8:00 PM - English

As four guys looking like they’re fresh out of high-school and a girl in leather pants played at the legendary rock-venue Lepakko in Helsinki, Finland, no-one could’ve known that one day they would be performing gigantic tours and would become the most successful band to ever come from Finland with album sales in figures with more than six digits, well known by their name NIGHTWISH. From their first album, "Angels Fall First" onwards, Nightwish gradually grew, or rather evolved.

The Decades 2018 tour will showcase popular songs and never before performed cuts from the band’s deep catalog of music. Additionally, every ticket will include a special Decades Tour CD which will be distributed at the concert.
