Join us digitally for our tour program, Local Views at PAMM, where select local artists will speak about their creative process and artistic practice. This month, Gonzalo Fuenmayor will lead the tour, sharing his drawing practice centered around the effects of modernization and progress in natural environments, specifically Latin American culture, and how those effects are displayed internationally through stereotypes and common places. The virtual program coincides with Fuenmayor's most recent solo exhibition, Palindromes, on view through March 5, 2021, at Dot Fiftyone Gallery, Miami.

Gonzalo Fuenmayor (b. 1977, Barranquilla, Colombia) is a Miami-based artist working primarily with drawing. Fuenmayor has been concerned about the effects of modernization and progress not only on natural environments but mostly on Latin American culture and its ways of being displayed internationally through stereotypes and common places. His aim seems to be not exclusively, to denounce banalization but also to understand its aesthetic mechanisms and cultural power. Fuenmayor received an MFA from School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, MA in 2004, and a BFA in Fine Arts and Art Education from School of Visual Arts in 2000. Fuenmayor has been awarded numerous awards including the 2020 EFG Bank Latin American Award, a 2018 Ellies Creator Award, a 2015 South Florida Cultural Consortium Fellowship for Visual and Media Artists, a Traveling Fellowship by the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2014, among others. He has exhibited in numerous solo and group shows in USA, Latin America, and Europe; his work was recently showcased in The Florida Prize 2018, Orlando Museum of Art, Orlando, a solo exhibition Tropical Mythologies at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in 2015, Caribbean Crossroads exhibition at the Queens Museum, NY, as well as recent a recent solo show Palindromes at Dotfiftyone Gallery in Miami. His work is part of numerous private and public collections including Pérez Art Museum Miami, Miami, FL, USA, Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, MA, USA, The Cornell Fine Arts Museum, Winter Park, USA among others.
