The Pérez Miami Art Museum (PAMM) presents “On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection.” Organized by PAMM Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander, this exhibition opens on June 8, 2017, and runs through April 8, 2018.

Description: 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 160 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.
