PAMM exhibits On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection

Through Sun 8 Apr, 2018

On the Horizon 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. Perez and recent acquisitions.  The diverse meanings placed on the horizon 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.

On the Horizon is presented in three distinct, yet interconnected “chapters,” with a new chapter opening every three months. The exhibition is organized around the metaphor of the horizon line—a motif that appears in many of the works on view—and brings together a strong view of artistic practices in Cuba from the last three decades as well as work by young, lesser-known artists working on the island and across the globe.
