In celebration of the tremendous creative energy of the local artist community, Miami Art Museum will present recent and newly commissioned work by approximately a dozen Miami-based artists in New Work Miami 2013. On view from November 21, 2012 through June 2, 2013, the exhibition will highlight the diverse and innovative practices of Miami’s artists, featuring site-specific installations, sculpture, painting, and photography. The exhibition will be among the last presentations in MAM’s current facility, marking the 12-month countdown to the Museum’s reopening in fall 2013 as Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) in a new, Herzog & de Meuron-designed building in Museum Park.
New Work Miami 2013 is indicative of the strong bond that has formed between the Museum and the city’s artists. It encapsulates MAM’s dedication to supporting the local artistic community, while signifying the vital role that the Museum will continue to play in nurturing the growth of the arts in Miami.
