Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) is pleased to present Beatriz González: A Retrospective, a monumental survey spanning six decades of the artist’s intensive research that addresses cultural and political issues specific to the artist’s home country of Colombia. On view from April 18, 2019, through September 1, 2019, the exhibition is González’s first career retrospective in the United States, providing a much-needed look at a Modern Colombian Art pioneer who offers one of the most nuanced and exciting art expressions of the postwar period in Latin America.
With over 150 works spanning 1960–present, the exhibition will embody the full scope of Gonzalez’s oeuvre, as well as her political production and commitment to documenting the violence perpetuated by the civil war in her country over the last three decades. The exhibition is co-organized PAMM with the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, in tandem with PAMM Chief Curator Tobias Ostrander and Mari Carmen Ramírez, the Wortham Curator of Latin American Art and Director, International Center for the Arts of the Americas, MFAH.
