“Art vs. Fetishism or the Utility of Idolatry” is a collective survey exploring how art is a fetish and how artists use this to their advantage. The exhibition opened on October 21, 2017, and is on view until January 13, 2018, at the Pan American Art Project (PAAP) Annex (located at 6999 NE 2nd Avenue, Suite 274) in Miami, Florida.

Curator Alejandro Machado asks, “Is art a weapon used to denounce fetishism as a tool of manipulation, or does it work because of that tool? Do we have to respond to this question? Does art have to prove anything?”

Participationg artists are VIK MUNIZ, KEHINDE WILEY, TRACEY SNELLING, SANDRA RAMOS, LUIS GONZÁLEZ PALMA, NADIN OSPINA, WILLIAM CANNINGS, EDOUARD DUVAL-CARRIÉ, CAROLINA SARDI, MARTA MARIA PEREZ BRAVO, MABEL POBLET, RUBEN MILLARES, and SANTIAGO PORTER PORTER.
