Pérez Art Museum Miami invites you to the Latin American and Latinx Art Fund's annual meeting. The virtual evening will include a preview of the 2020–2021 season followed by a conversation between PAMM Curator María Elena Ortiz and Collection Artist Firelei Baez.
Rendering her subjects in complex layers of pattern and imagery, Firelei Báez (b. 1981, Dominican Republic) casts cultural and regional histories into an imaginative realm, where visual references drawn from the past are reconfigured to explore new possibilities for the future. Báez received an M.F.A. from Hunter College, a B.F.A. from the Cooper Union’s School of Art, and studied at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. Báez is shortlisted for Artes Mundi 9, and will be the subject of a solo presentation at the ICA Watershed, Boston, MA in 2021. In 2019, the artist's work was the subject of solo exhibitions at the Mennello Museum of Art, Orlando, FL, the Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and the Modern Window at the Museum of Modern Art, New York.
