Through a large donation of Cuban art in 2017, an earlier donation of Latin American art in 2011, and significant gifts through acquisition funds, Jorge M. and Darlene Pérez have added more than 500 works of modern and contemporary art to PAMM’s permanent collection. "Allied with Power: African and African Diaspora Art from the Jorge M. Pérez Collection" celebrates their most recent acquisitions, which consists of a sizable selection of international African and African Diaspora artists. Inspired by his upbringing in a number of Latin American countries, Pérez began collecting the work of Cuban and Afro-Latino artists several years ago. Recently he has expanded that focus to include artists of the full African diaspora. Allied with Power shows the result of these years of dedicated effort and exploration. The exhibition highlights artists whose works embody the possibilities and complexities of our contemporary moment. "Allied with Power" showcases a wide range of practices and thematics, including abstraction, representation, politics, spirituality, and race. Collapsing national borders, the artists in the exhibition ally with power, representing a kaleidoscope of voices that declare their authority.
