If you see dark clouds of smoke rising from the Pérez Art Museum tomorrow at 2:30pm, don’t panic. Our beloved contemporary museum is not burning, but rather celebrating a new exhibition (william cordova now’s the time: narratives of southern alchemy) by releasing smoke signals from its rooftop.
The installation, tilted smoke signals (12.29, cinco en sombra de la tarde, reté fo), will be performed by Cordova himself (and a team of safety professionals to ensure things don’t go south). While viewers will not be allowed on the actual rooftop, PAMM encourages you to watch the 30-minute performance from surrounding areas like Museum Park. If you like what you see and want to learn more about the artist, stop by PAMM this Thursday, on April 26 at 7pm, when Cordova will participate in an artist talk with artist Leslie Hewitt and PAMM Associate Curator María Elena Ortiz.
