The Pérez Art Museum Miami Has Added 13 New Artworks to its Permanent Collection

Including a walk-in sculpture by Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica.

The Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) announced that it has acquired 13 new works to its permanent collection. 11 of the new artwork is by women with Latin roots, reiterating the institution’s commitment to showcasing artists from underrepresented communities.

Highlights include a large-scale sculpture by Karon Davis of Bobby Seale, the co-founder of the Black Panther Movement, who is shown in all-white plaster surrounded by a bag of groceries that pop off with a gold luster. The work is supposed to reflect initiatives such as the Free Breakfast Program and various others implemented by Seale and the Panthers to fight for food security during the 1970s. “Its overall message is tied to our mission in many ways,” said PAMM director, Franklin Sirmans in an interview with Artnet News. “It’s highlighting history with a beautiful work of art that allows people to dig really deep, to learn something, and to reflect upon the politics of our shared history,” Sirmans added.

The South Florida institution also acquired a colorful modernist sculpture, entitled Penetrável Macaléia (Malaceia Penetrable), by legendary Brazilian artist, Hélio Oiticica. Along with works by Sonia Gomes, Tania Bruguera and Christine Sun, to name a few.

Elsewhere, John Baldessari’s final body of work is on view at Sprüth Magers Los Angeles.
