This exhibition was born as the result of what can only be considered an impressive exploration into the art of the Caribbean, and it is now featured in the Perez Art Museum (PAMM). It encompasses 180 objects that put the visual and artistic history of a vast and beautiful region in the continent on display, for the audience’s pleasure.

The Caribbean: Crossroads of the World goes back in time to the Haitian Revolution and works its way towards our time. Elvis Fuentes was in charge of the curatorship, which brought together the research of El Museo del Barrio, the Queens Museum and The Studio Museum in Harlem, three of New York’s most distinguished institutions that for years have followed local artwork, as well as its most important creators.

The recently launched Perez Art Museum educates and astounds its visitors with an interdisciplinary show that includes sculpture, photography, graphics and video. In order to make sense of the artistic and cultural legacies of several countries, and offering at the same time an optimal space for their appreciation, this exhibition is set out according to the following thematic axis: Fluid Motions, Counterpoints, Shades of History and Kingdoms of this World. Each one pretends to clarify an important aspect of everyday life, as well as the sacred and political aspects that coexist in a land that is brimming with traditions and histories, which date back many centuries. Within Miami’s context, the presentation has a spatial resonance for the many people who visit and inhabit the city, a multicultural space and important contemporary art scene.

It will remain open until August 17, but inside the museum we can also find brilliant proposals like the hypnotic work of Edouard Duval-Carrié, Imagined Landscapes, and Project Gallery by Shahzia Sikander, artists that let their vast imaginary and color skills overflow in their pieces.
