Adler Guerrier: Formulating a Plot
Miami-based artist Adler Guerrier (b. 1975) works in a variety of media, including sculpture, photography, prints, and collaged works on paper. Guerrier’s practice investigates the mutability of text and image and the variability of meaning. He is as interested in politics as he is in poetics, and his work explores the rich territory between them. Often using Miami as a physical site and an embodiment of realized (and unrealized) moments in American political and social history, Guerrier examines, repurposes, and sometimes fictionalizes the city through his work. Guerrier’s oeuvre is expansive in its engagement with the urban environment, art history and materials and this exhibition will bring together a selection of work from the last decade of his career alongside new work produced for this presentation.
Highlights from the Exhibition
"'Formulating a Plot' ... provides a view into Miami as a city with a distinct character that relates to broader narratives of history"
Organization and Support
"Adler Guerrier: Formulating a Plot" is organized by Pérez Art Museum Miami Associate Curator Diana Nawi with support provided by Macy’s and Funding Arts Network, Inc.
Adler Guerrier: el paisaje urbano como termómetro psicosocial
El título se apoya en el vocablo “ plot” que en inglés se refiere a un tiempo a complot y terreno o parcela, resumiendo así de manera efectiva la propuesta de Guerrier, quien desde el comienzo de su carrera ha estado interesado en el escrutinio del paisaje urbano en tanto termómetro psicogeográfico de nuestro entorno inmediato.
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 and to emphasize artists and projects that engage with traditions from the United States, the Caribbean, and Latin America.
