What Carried Us Over: Gifts from Gordon W. Bailey features selections from gifts made by Gordon W. Bailey, a Los Angeles–based collector, scholar, and advocate, who has donated 60 artworks to Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) since 2016. Of the 28 artists represented in Bailey’s gift, all but two are new additions to PAMM collection. Few of these artists received formal instruction. Most overcame hardship, particularly those living in the Deep South during the Jim Crow era. Still, in spite of the challenges before them, as the title of this inclusive exhibition confirms, they have been carried over by their respective commitments to their unique practices, creating inspiring works in a variety of media such as drawing, painting, and sculpture.
