Polly Apfelbaum, John Giorno and Beatriz Milhazes are participating in current and upcoming exhibitions at the new Pérez Art Museum in Miami (formerly the Miami Art Museum). The $220 million building, designed by Herzog & de Meuron, opens this week.
Polly’s floor installation, Mojojojo, is featured in AMERICANA. The piece is inspired by the evil monkey in the Powerpuff Girls. The exhibition will extend until May 2015 and will rotate installations based on the theme of art produced in North and South America as well as the Carribbean.
The Perez will also host the first major United States retrospective by Beatriz Milhazes opening in September 2014. The exhibition, Jardim Botanico, will feature works produced over the past 25 years.
Poem Prints by John Giorno, Published by Durham Press, will be exhibited in A Human Document: Selections from the Sackner Archive of Concrete and Visual Poetry. The exhibition presents an extensive selection from Ruth and Marvin Sackner’s broad collection of historic through contemporary works that combine word and image. The prints are also on exhibit at our booth at Art Miami.
