north and south: bernice abbott's u.s. route 1 / MIAMI BEACH




The Wolfsonian–FIU and Instagram forum #JJ Community are bringing mid-century artist Berenice Abbott’s vision of daily life into the 21st century! Thousands of budding photojournalists on social media submitted entries, with fifteen winners selected for a Summer 2017 installation, The Long Road to Now: Digital Photos Inspired by Berenice Abbott’s Road Trip, to be showcased in the museum’s lobby June 9–October 8, 2017. This contemporary response to Abbott’s work will coincide with The Wolfsonian’s presentation of North and South: Berenice Abbott’s U.S. Route 1 (organized by the Syracuse University Art Collection), an exhibition of highlights from Abbott’s massive, 2,400-image photography series documenting her 1954 road trip up and down U.S. Route 1 on the American East Coast. Capturing scenes around the world, the winners—hailing from locations dotting the globe, including Paris, Milan, Sacramento, Chicago, Yekaterinburg and more—follow in Abbott’s footsteps by exploring three key themes: Signage, Classic, and Road Trip. Their images suggest new possibilities, an open road, and the nearly limitless creative license afforded by the sleek digital tools of today.


on the horizon: contemporary cuban art from the jorge m. perez collection / MIAMI

[THROUGH april 8, 2018]

This exhibition explores the diverse cultural and emotional landscapes of recent Cuban Art. It presents a selection of works by Contemporary Cuban artists donated to the PAMM by Jorge M. Pérez, the majority from a recent gift of over 160 pieces, as well as works previously gifted to PAMM in 2012, and several recent acquisitions. The selection includes multiple images of the horizon, and these works serve to structure the conceptual framework of the exhibition. The diverse meanings placed on the horizon—which include it as a symbol of longing, containment or desire—radiate across the additional works on view. Produced in various media, such as, painting, sculpture, drawing, video, and installation, these contemplative artworks help generate a discussion regarding the specificities of Cuba’s current physical, social, and political environment, as revealed through each artist’s personal experience and unique aesthetics.
