PAMM REOPENED AND EXHIBITS ‘ALLIED WITH POWER: AFRICAN AND AFRICAN DIASPORA ART FROM THE JORGE M. PÉREZ COLLECTION’
On view until July 2021, the show celebrates the most recent acquisitions to Jorge M. And Darlene Pérez’ Collection, which consists of a sizable selection of international African and African Diaspora artists.
Inspired by his upbringing in a number of Latin American countries, Pérez began collecting the work of Cuban and Afro-Latino artists several years ago. Recently he has expanded that focus to include artists of the full African diaspora. Allied with Power shows the result of these years of dedicated effort and exploration.
The exhibition highlights artists whose works embody the possibilities and complexities of our contemporary moment. Allied with Power showcases a wide range of practices and thematics, including abstraction, representation, politics, spirituality, and race. Collapsing national borders, the artists in the exhibition ally with power, representing a kaleidoscope of voices that declare their authority.
