Pan American Art Projects
2450 NW 2nd Avenue
Miami, FL 33127

Pan American Art Projects is very pleased to announce our next exhibition, Made in Miami. Since the insertion of Art Basel Miami Beach in 2002 the city has become a hub for contemporary art, resulting in a huge influx of artists and galleries here in the past ten years. This interest in art has also extended to the creation of several new institutions such as the Frost Museum at the Florida International University, and more recently the Perez Art Museum Miami.

The artists in this exhibition are Gustavo Acosta, Edouard Duval-Carrié, Carlos Estévez and Carolina Sardi; they all call Miami home and have been based in the city through its evolution into a cultural hub. They all came to Miami from abroad (Carolina Sardi from Argentina, Gustavo Acosta and Carlos Estevez from Cuba and Edouard Duval Carrie from Haiti) and had already reached international acclaim before settling here which is a testament to the draw that Miami has with its rich cultural panorama.

Revisiting the past – The paintings of Gustavo Acosta

By Irina Leyva-Pérez

If we look back at Gustavo’s oeuvre over a span of twenty years, we can easily recognize that he has been interested in social expressions of power. In the 1980s, when his work started receiving attention, he was using metaphors of Roman architecture as a reference to the Cuban social system. The dark, gray and muted colors were intentionally placed to reinforce the atmosphere of oppression that he wanted to convey. By representing some of the most recognizable buildings in Roman architecture, he drew a subtle parallel between the Imperial Roman and Cuban dictatorships.

The Great Systems – Gustavo Acosta/Flights of Fancy – Carlos Gonzalez

Article appeared in Art Pulse Magazine 2009 “To soar” involves breeching the wall of the mundane to internalize, perhaps, the purest essence of our reality. Then, from above, startled by so much finiteness, we prepare for that voyage of yearning toward the city from whence we came and toward which we travel, there where stories are interconnected and new paths, journeys, and narrations are configured

Gustavo Acosta – HERE

Miami, FL

January 8 – March 5, 2011

HERE

Open House Saturday, January 8  6-9 p.m.

Pan American Art Projects
2450 NW 2nd Ave.  Miami, FL 33127
t: 305.573.2400

www.panamericanart.com

Pan American Art Projects presents Gustavo Acosta: HERE a tribute exhibition to the city of Miami. Obsessed by the power of architecture, the artist traces the urban transformation of the city he calls home in this newseries of works. Having witnessed the real estate boom and economic crash that followed thereafter, Acosta’s pieces encapsulate architectural giants in a stand-still moment; whether plummeting to ruins, being erected, orstanding strong amidst the chaos of a city of lost promise. Works like “Borrando las Huellas”, which depicts collapsing buildings, and “One Day I Find Myself Building a Circus”, a large canvas of the foundations of the new Marlin stadium, portray the city as a breathing entity; one that suffers with the collapse or construction of its parts; what is enfolding in each canvas is left up to the viewer to decide.

The pulsating city in Acosta’s canvases is a city at conflict with itself. An undeniable nostalgia creeps through the artist’s hectic brushstrokes. The emotional intensity of the artist’s world is present as Acosta captures a fleeting moment in the trajectory of the city’s day-to-day. Acosta has always made the cities in which he has resided the protagonists of his oeuvre. In this exhibition, we see Miami through the artist’s eyes. He sets before us a map of his city: the places that define Miami as his hometown. HERE is Acosta’s tribute to Miami, through these works the artist is embracing his role in the city; grounding his roots and proclaiming his sense of belonging HERE.

Gustavo Acosta has been living and working in Miami since 1994. Throughout his career he has exhibited in important public institutions worldwide, including: Museo Nacional, Havana, Cuba; São Paulo Biennial, São Paulo, Brazil; Museum of Fine Arts, Caracas, Venezuela; Palazzo Mediceo, Seravezza, Italy; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami, Florida; and El Museo del Barrio, New York.
