PAMM’s new Latin American and Latinx Fund
Posted on November - 20 - 2018
Miami is a melting pot of cultures, but of all of them, the Latin community is perhaps the strongest in the region, attracting people from all over the continent resulting in a vibrant and creative environment. As one of the champions and leading supporting organization in the area is the Peréz Art Museum Miami (PAMM). The growing organization just recently announced its Latin American and Latinx Art Fund, which in the future will promote the work and exhibits of Latin American and Latinx artists. This program reflects the ongoing commitment of the institution to support artists from Latin America, as well as unrepresented minorities within those groups, such as the African diaspora and Caribbean artists.
Additionally, the Latinx Art Sessions will be launched as a collaboration between PAMM and ArtCenter/South Florida to present a two-day event in January with the intent of connecting artists with art industry leaders. One of the main purposes of this event is to enhance the visibility of US Lantix artists and promote ties within the artistic community.
Recently the PAMM has been internationally recognized for its involvement with Latin American artists, hosting high-profile exhibitions by Dominican-American Firelei Báez, Colombians Carlos Motta and Doris Salcedo, Argentinian Julio Le Parc and upcoming exhibition by Colombian Beatriz González.
This fund and the PAMM´s contribution to Latin American art and their interest in Latinx artists further cements Miami as a crossroad of the Americas and an exciting place to be as an artist, collector or simple art lovers.
