The Perez Art Museum Miami has added 13 new art works to its permanent collection

The Perez Art Museum Miami announced the acquisition of 13 new works for its permanent collection. 11 of the 13 new works are by Latin-American women, reinforcing the institution’s commitment in showcasing artists from marginalized communities. The sculpture of Bobby Seale (co-founder of Black Panther Movement), is large and detailed by Karon Davis. It is surrounded by groceries with a golden luster. This work is meant to represent initiatives such as Seale’s Free Breakfast Program or other ones that were implemented by the Panthers in the 1970s to ensure food security.

Franklin Sirmans, PAMM director, said “the overall message was tied to our mission in many different ways in an interview with Artnet News.  It’s highlighting the history with a beautiful piece of art that allows people dig really deep, learn something, reflect upon our shared history, and to think about the politics of our common history.”

The South Florida institution also purchased Penetravel Macaleia (Malaceia Penetrable), a modernist sculpture by Helio Oiticica, a legendary Brazilian artist. Sonia Gomes’s works are accompanied by Tania Bruguera, Christine Sun and others. John Baldessari’s last work can be seen at Spruth Magers Los Angeles.
