25 Sq. inches The Faces of the Permanent Collection

Rodríguez.

Koizumi Kishio—Remembering Tokyo

October 1, 2014-January 11, 2015The Great Kanto Earthquake of 1923 was the worst natural disaster ever to strike Japan. Using art as a social record, the woodblock
print artist Koizumi Kishio (1893-1945) produced this famous art series between 1928 and 1940. These works are fond memories of
the old imperial capital, as well as his accounts of the resurrection of Tokyo. Curated by Professor Lidu Yi.

The Perez Museum
Getting ready for Art Basel Season in Miami
The Perez Museum, after all, your new museum of art in Miami is a $131 million haute-design showcase for modern and contemporary work that also manages to extend an open, dare we say homespun, welcome. The PAMM's Art Basel Season public exhibitions will open its doors to the public on December 4th  2014 until February 2015.

When it opens to the public at the edge of Biscayne Bay on Wednesday, on time and on budget, the strikingly original and meticulously thought-out Perez Art Museum Miami will put art front and center on the city’s landscape for the first time. In doing so, supporters and civic leaders fervently hope it will redefine Miami as a cultural destination.

With wrap-around verandas cooled by lush gardens and a monumental overhanging roof, 360-degree views of bay and city from within and without, and an adjacent new plaza, park and bay walk, the unusually porous museum could also become something else, backers say: a spectacular new front porch for the people of Miami.

PAMM leaders asked the architects not to strain for the iconic, but to come up with a cost-efficient building that would reflect Miami and make the most of the site’s waterfront location in a public park. That also meant making the place inviting to a broadly diverse audience, and flexible enough to show off a growing collection that attempts to connect modern Latin American art to its U.S. and European counterparts.

Art Basel Miami Beach
Broke sales records last December 2013 
Art Basel Miami Beach, which draws international crowds and inspires multiple satellite fairs, took place last Dec. 5-8 at the Miami Beach Convention Center. Every Fall the city of Miami gets ready for the preparations for the Miami Art Week .
For its 2013 edition, showed goers will find a new section dedicated to works produced in editions, an expanded — and extended — Art Public exhibition in Collins Park and new galleries amid familiar stalwarts.
Once again, 250 of the world’s top galleries, chosen through a highly competitive process,  showcased works in the Miami Beach Convention Center that, for the most part, are available for sale. They’ll be split into sectors that have now become familiar to art-show regulars. In the galleries, show goers will find drawings, sculpture, paintings and installations by more than 4,000 artists. 
 
Art Basel Miami Beach showed successful results for 2013. The visitor tally matched prior year’s record of 50,000 people. The Art Basel Miami Beach is the oceanfront sister to the major contemporary art fair in Basel, Switzerland, operating a satellite in Florida since 2002. The annual event was a blast of international art action in convention centers and hotels across Miami. There were hundreds of gallery booths and thousands of artworks. 
 
The five-day art fair at the Miami Beach Convention Center anchors a week of roughly two dozens art shows, and the stretch has transformed early December into one of the busiest 
weeks for hotels. Basel rents space to 250 galleries from 31 countries, making it the largest contemporary art fair in the United States.
