The selection and presentation of artists, collections, and commissioned projects for PAMM is guided by the Museum’s mission to create dialogues across and through local, regional, and international contexts. Its curatorial program examines the interpretation and appropriation of cultural and political identities, economic structures, and commodities generated by Miami’s diverse population and its position as a cross-cultural hub. The Museum also emphasizes artists and projects that engage with traditions from the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America, and is particularly attuned to the work of local artists and designers. As a young, immigrant city, Miami is a nexus for the transnational exchange of people, resources, cultures, and ideas, and the Pérez Art Museum Miami has developed its collecting and exhibition program to respond to and reflect the dynamic interchanges that shape and feed the city’s identity.
