PAMM presents a new project by Marjetica Potrč, titled The School of the Forest | Miami Campus. This multi-part endeavor centers on a kind of elevated, open-air shelter common among Amazonian forest communities, which the artist encountered while carrying out an extended research residency in the Brazilian state of Acre. Over the course of the exhibition period, the museum will present a series of lectures and workshops by esteemed scholars inside a similar structure constructed in the gallery.
