Gustavo Acosta, Carlos Estevez, Gory, Ruben Torres-Llorca in Made in Miami, at Pan American Art Projects, Miami

February 14-April 19, 2014

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.

One of Us Can Be Wrong and Other Essays

November 29th – December 29th, 2012


Juan Ruiz Galeria
301 NW 28th Street
Miami, Florida 33127

A solo show that takes the continuity of “hypertextual” mediums and plays in the work by Ruben Torres Llorca to new frontiers.

This time of disenchantment is approached through the clever simulation of an aesthetics frozen at the highest point of the promises of modernism only as a ruse. The viewer’s gaze is introduced to a conceptual art that reflects the condition of a fissured world in which there is no refuge under any system.

Opening Reception November 29th – 6:00 – 9:00 PM

Ruben Torres Llorca

How long can you keep the wolf from the door? A powerful title for a powerful piece of art. Conceptual artist Rubén Torres Llorca is considered a living master. He works in many mediums and creates his installation art sets entirely by hand. His incredibly detailed paintings weave romantic film noir novels in constructed spaces that resound with quietness, impending drama and leave the audience riveted. He is akeen to the master of suspense himself, Alfred Hitchcock.

A 20-Year Cuban Art Collection

By Brett Sokol
January 2011

“We’re sitting in a renaissance!” Ricardo Pau-Llosa happily thundered to the crowd seated before him, gesturing to the artwork hanging inside downtown Miami’s Freedom Tower. “What more proof do you need?” It was hard to argue with Pau-Llosa’s evidence.

Praxis International Art            by Julia P. Herzberg
So Quiet in Here was a memorable installation by Rubén Torres Llorca at El Museo del Barrio in New York in 1998. It was a parodic recreation of a historical account dating from Belgium’s colonial era that involved the Geographic Society of Brussels and an African family that was living inside the zoo in Brussels for a period of time before they quietly disappeared.
