Descripción del Premio
(MIAMI, FL — April 19, 2021) — On Saturday, April 17, Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) hosted the seventh annual Art of the Party, where Cuban artist María Magdalena Campos-Pons was announced as the recipient of the 2021 Pérez Prize, an unrestricted award of $50,000 that honors artistic achievement, funded by a gift from local patrons of the arts and longtime PAMM supporters Jorge and Darlene Pérez. The annual event, which included an intimate, in-person dinner on PAMM’s waterfront terrace or the option to dine at home with a virtual presentation, raised over $500,000 for PAMM’s robust arts education programs that have served over 300,000 children since opening in December 2013. “Despite the hardships of 2020, I’m grateful we can safely come together, both virtually and in-person, to support a Miami institution that is reflective of this city and this community. Art, in its many forms, has the unique power to ... bring us together, even this past year when we’ve been apart. From outreach programs and interactive school tours to art talks and performances, PAMM brings art to life for thousands of people of all ages in-person and online. Education is at the core of everything we do and Art of the Party helps fund these life-affirming programs,” said PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans. At the event, PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans announced María Magdalena Campos-Pons as the recipient of the third annual Pérez Prize for her monumental artistic achievement. The Cuban artist is known for a unique multimedia approach to her artistic practice, which includes photography, painting, sculpture, film, video and performance. As the descendant of Nigerians who had been brought to Cuba as slaves in the 19th century, her work is deeply autobiographical, addressing history, memory, gender, and religion and how these important issues relate to the formation of identity. PAMM is proud to have several of Campos-Pons’s works in the museum’s permanent collection, as well as a series of polaroid prints called The Magician’s Tools in Allied with Power: African and African Diaspora Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection, an exhibition of over 40 works by international African and African Diaspora artists on view from the collection of Jorge Pérez through February 6, 2022. From both PAMM’s waterfront terrace and from home, guests toasted Campos-Pons’s artistic achievements and celebrated Miami’s resilient arts community, which has overcome immense challenges over the last year. The Pérez Prize represents PAMM and the Pérez family’s shared commitment to uplifting dynamic artistic voices in contemporary art. Last year’s prize was awarded to Puerto Rican artist Daniel Lind-Ramos, whose work speaks to the legacy of African diasporic traditions and Latin American history through an Afro-Caribbean lens. The inaugural prize in 2019 was awarded to Christina Quarles whose paintings mine the line between abstraction and figuration while exploring sexuality, race and gender. “The Pérez Prize honors creatives who use art to overcome the challenges that affect our society most," said Jorge M. Pérez. "As an acclaimed professor and artist—who's touched so many through her work exploring history, race and culture—there's no one more deserving of this prize than Maria Magdalena. I couldn’t be more honored to support her in furthering her craft.” Art of the Party also raised over $500,000 for arts education, which PAMM has continued to prioritize throughout the pandemic, exploring new virtual programs and classes to support children and families of Miami-Dade County, including virtual exhibition tours, #PAMMDIY online art-making activities, and digital resources for teachers.
