Pérez Art Museum Miami was transformed by PAMM Presents Dimensions by Devonté Hynes and Ryan McNamara. "Dimensions" was an interdisciplinary performance that spread across the museum's expansive terrace and featured eight moving sculptural platforms holding live dancers and musicians. In a surprise finale, the platforms came together, like puzzle pieces, to reveal interwoven musical compositions and choreography. The performance was the result of the museum bringing Hynes and McNamara together for their annual Researcher-in-Residence program. As part of that program, they spent weeks exploring Miami and its diverse cultural history--the inspiration for "Dimensions." The evening began with a toast to artists who are currently on view at the museum, led by PAMM's new director, Franklin Sirmans. Notable guests of the evening included singer Solange Knowles, gallerist Andrea Rosen, the Guggenheim's JiaJia Fei, designer Mara Hoffman, editor Dorian Grinspan, musician Nelly Furtado, actress Arielle Kebbel, and R&B artist Miguel.
