Pérez Art Museum Miami

Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is a modern and contemporary art museum dedicated to collecting and exhibiting international art of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Felipe Mujica

Born Santiago Chile, lives in New York. Felipe Mujica creates works comprised of installation, drawing, collapsible sculptures, and printmaking. His fabric panels or curtains operate as both sculptural objects and functional architectural interventions.

At Pérez Art Museum Miami, Mujica creates new works collaboratively with artisans from the Miccosukee tribe in South Florida. The patchwork designs incorporated in traditional Miccosukee garments and decorations represent abstracted interpretations of the natural world in which the tribes are immersed, featuring motifs such as alligators, rain, river, wind, and even a man on horse – an iconic symbol of colonial power. 

By incorporating these abstracted yet traditional designs into this collaborative work, Mujica conveys his research on geometric abstraction and its history, as well as a sensitivity to a metaphysical exploration of the world.

Allied with Power. African and African Diaspora Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection

The exhibition highlights artists whose works embody the possibilities and complexities of our contemporary moment. Allied with Power showcases a wide range of practices and thematics, including abstraction, representation, politics, spirituality, and race. Collapsing national borders, the artists in the exhibition ally with power, representing a kaleidoscope of voices that declare their authority.
