PAMM Associate Curator María Elena Ortiz touches upon cumanana (southern alchemy pa’ nicomedes santa cruz y damian Thurston AKA MC Madness), a sculpture which is part of the exhibition william cordova now’s the time: narratives of southern alchemy.
This exhibition is the first extensive museum survey of cultural practitioner william cordova (b. 1969, Lima; lives in Miami, Lima, and New York). It presents a selection of works embodying the three main themes that have inspired the work of this celebrated Miami artist for decades: transmission, alchemy, and transcendence. In his nationally and internationally recognized drawings, sculptures, installations, and collaborative projects, cordova collapses linear concepts of time and history to address contemporary notions of displacement.
See the exhibition at PAMM through October 7, 2018.
