ARC Magazine announces a new exhibition. The Pérez Art Museum Miami presents “Caribbean: Crossroads of the World,” which will highlight over two centuries of rarely seen works dating from the Haitian Revolution to the present. This exhibition employs an inter-disciplinary approach to advance understanding of the Caribbean, and combines seminal works with those by contemporary artists. The exhibition will run from April 18, 2014-August 17, 2014, at the Perez Art Museum Miami, at 101 West Flagler Street, Miami, Florida.
Description: Caribbean: Crossroads of the World will highlight over two centuries of rarely seen works—from paintings and sculptures to prints, books, photographs, films, videos and historical artifacts—dating from the Haitian Revolution (c. 1804) to the present. This exhibition employs an inter-disciplinary approach to advance our understanding of the Caribbean and its artistic heritage, and combines works by figures such as Paul Gauguin, Winslow Homer, Wifredo Lam and Armando Reverón with works by contemporary artists including Allora & Calzadilla, Janine Antoni, José Bedia, Edouard Duval-Carrié and Nari Ward, among many others.
