Cities are, by definition, the epitome of civilization. They are a human creation where people live, work, dream and die. Cities are the hubs of activity, the places that define us as social beings. So it is not a surprise that traditionally they have been the source of inspiration for artists. In this exhibition we explore the way contemporary artists see their relationship with cities.

Gustavo Acosta – HERE

Miami, FL

January 8 – March 5, 2011


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

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


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.

Luis Cruz Aaceta at Pan American Art Projects, Miami

Pan American Art Projects is proud to announce our representation in Florida of Luis Cruz Azaceta with the inauguration of his first exhibition at our gallery from October 23rd through December 7th, 2010. The show will mark his return to the Miami art scene.
Trajectories/Trayectorias is a major exhibit which will occupy the entire gallery, and will include several works from the solo show Swimming to Havana presented at the New Orleans Museum of Art earlier this year. In the central piece of the exhibit Hell Act (2009) the artist ironically depicts a fleet of makeshift rafts aimlessly and helplessly bobbing around like toys in an enormous bath tub; the work illustrates the artist’s constant struggle with the isolation, loss, and inexorability of being an immigrant. Also included in the exhibit will be works like Spill: Where is Superman when you need him, (2010) from his most recent series Spill. The piece touches on the inadequacies of human solutions and institutions in the face of catastrophe. There will also be sculptures, installations, and paintings from other recent periods included in the show.
Azaceta’s visual language has a powerful sense of distortion, highlighting a juxtaposition of agony and humor. This year marks 50 years since the artist’s departure from his birthplace, his first world and the one that has continued to be present in him throughout his creative journey. The Swimming to Havana series expresses the bittersweet impracticality of a distant desire to return to the past.
The artist’s fearlessness and determination to explore controversial issues has gained him recognition as a key figure in American contemporary art. In 2009 he received the Joan Mitchell Foundation Grant, which followed other important fellowships and grants, from the Guggenheim Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the Cintas Fellowship for Cuban Artists. Luis Cruz Azaceta’s work is in important collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MoMA, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Smithsonian Institute of Art, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MARCO) of Monterrey, Mexico, and the Fine Arts Museum of Caracas, Venezuela.
