PAMM Project Gallery: MARIO GARCIA TORRES
10:00 AM-6:00 PM
The Mexico City-based artist Mario Garcia Torres is currently working on a new project commissioned by PAMM for one of its first floor project galleries. Garcia Torres has long been interested in exploring historiography by addressing unusual parallels or little-know fragments of stories within recent art history. Simultaneously, the artist examines the specific qualities and contexts that provoke creation and invention. As part of his initial investigation, the artist is considering notions of South Florida as a site for withdrawal from society for the purposes of artistic creation. This research is intended to produce a number of gestures, including photographic documentation, a potential film, and display of objects, which will be exhibited, successively, beginning on December 2, 2014—timed to the kickoff of Art Basel Miami Beach.
