Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) welcomed visitors for the second chapter of “On the Horizon: Contemporary Cuban Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection,” an exhibition showcasing a selection of works by Contemporary Cuban artists donated to the museum by philanthropist and renown collector Jorge M. Pérez. This exhibition explores the diverse cultural and emotional landscapes of recent Cuban art. A triptych by seminal 20th century Cuban abstract artist, Waldo Balart, hung alongside works by contemporary artists who share similar formal, linguistic and modernist tendencies, including Kenia Arguiñao, Sandú Darié, and Aimée Garcia. Havana-based artist Reynier Leyva Novo revisited scenes from Cuban history to offer new critical perspectives.

The evening of festivities kicked off with a private walkthrough for sponsors, collectors and special guests, led by chief curator, Tobias Ostrander, and Jorge M. Perez. Glenda Léon and other artists from the exhibition provided additional commentary about the works on view. This VIP tour was followed by a public art talk between featured artists Glenda León and Flavio Garciandía where they provided additional commentary about their works on view and its relation to history and abstraction.
