Haroon Mirza (b. 1977, London) is a multimedia artist who works with audiovisual materials, electronic equipment, amplifiers, and found objects to create immersive environments and kinetic sculptures. His work amplifies phenomena that are often imperceptible––such as electricity––and seeks to create or distort the relationship between optics and acoustics, giving unexpected visual and sensorial analogs to what we hear. Mirza uses a particular visual and material vocabulary to modify architectural spaces, including colored neon and sculptural acoustic foam, creating installations that offer a precise, highly mediated experience of sound and light.

This exhibition presents the second iteration of For Those in Peril on the Sea (2011), an installation by Hew Locke (b. 1959, Edinburgh; lives in London) first shown in 2013 during PAMM’s inaugural programming. Consisting of dozens of scaled-down replicas of ships suspended from the ceiling, the installation creates the impression of a massive exodus taking place throughout the architectural space above the viewer. It features a broad range of vessel types, from cigarette boats, catamarans, and cruise liners to ragged fishing skiffs and timeworn cargo ships. In light of Miami’s history as the site for numerous waves of immigration—particularly from the Caribbean, and specifically by sea—For Those in Peril on the Sea will have a particular resonance for the Museum’s audiences. With its significant links to the South Florida community, this installation, part of Pérez Art Museum Miami’s permanent collection, promises a powerful experience for visitors. Times Read: 0

Overworked cleaning lady Gloria (Carmen Maura) takes in multiple jobs to make ends meet. Her unforgiving life is inhabited by a cast of eccentric characters: an abusive taxi driver husband who schemes to forge Adolf Hitler’s handwriting, a drug-dealing teenage son who is the actual forger, an unappreciative mother-in-law who hides her sweets, and a prostitute neighbor who pays Gloria to sit in on acts she performs with voyeuristic customers. In this absurd and oppressive environment, what is a woman like Gloria to do – in Almodovarian fashion? Drugs, murder, sex, and selling off a younger son to a pedophiliac dentist helped make this tragicomedy the auteur’s first international success. Times Read: 0

William Cordova now’s the time: narratives of southern alchemy is the first extensive museum survey of cultural practitioner William Cordova (b. 1969, Lima; lives in Miami, Lima, and New York). It presents a selection of works embodying the three main themes that have inspired the work of this celebrated Miami artist for decades: transmission, alchemy, and transcendence. In his nationally and internationally recognized drawings, sculptures, installations, and collaborative projects, Cordova collapses linear concepts of time and history to address contemporary notions of displacement. Like an ethnographer, he extensively researches symbols, people and the common threads that bind different cultures to one another, foregoing the boundaries between the past and the present. Then, he uses ephemeral and precarious materials to create elegant works that challenge traditional Western typologies. Striving to create a flexible and critical space for the understanding of our contemporary moment, he builds bridges between various intersecting narratives such as architecture, cinema, literature, and music.

This exhibition presents a series of humanizing and intimate photographs by Sid Grossman (b. 1913, New York; d. 1955, Provincetown, Massachusetts). Grossman was a founding member of the Photo League (1936–51), a group of primarily Jewish photographers active in New York, who used their medium to shed light on issues of social inequality in the urban environment following the Great Depression. The league ceased to function in 1951, four years after it was blacklisted as a subversive political group during the second Red Scare—a period in American politics and culture that centred on an intense fear of communism.
