A Private Walk Through Of The Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) On The Occasion of Art Basel 2015

On the occasion of Art Basel Miami 2015, the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) gave the media a private glance at some of their current exhibitions and special projects. Highlights from the tour include a large mid-career retrospective by artist Nari Ward, which includes mixed-media collages, photography, assemblage, sculpture, interactive works, video, and architectural installations. Other highlights include Bik Van der Pol's aviary, entitled Speechless, which houses five parrots that are taught to mimic phrases from T.S. Elliot’s seminal 1922 poem, “The Waste Land,” comparing landscape devastated by war to the ecological devastation of today. Nari Ward: Sun Splashed will be on view until February 21, 2016 at Perez Art Museum Miami, 1103 Biscayne Blvd. photographs by Scout MacEachron
