Private Reception and Tour of "Poetics of Relation"
On Wednesday, August 26, 2015, PAMM Core Creative members and corporate partners enjoyed an exclusive cocktail reception in Paresky Hall, followed by a private, curator-led tour of "Poetics of Relation."

Inspired by the writings of author and philosopher Édouard Glissant (1928 – 2011), "Poetics of Relation" responds to Miami as a site defined culturally by its diasporic communities and it looks to place these local dynamics in dialogue with more distant contexts that share similar histories. The Exhibition explores shifts in the sensibilities and global outlook of artists whose work engages the historical legacy of trauma caused by colonialism and migration. By pursuing Glissant’s logic of displacing the singularity of nationality, language and ethnicity, in exchange for adopting multiple rooted identities, the works displayed in the exhibition will engage this vision of a diverse and transient world of migrant subjects. The artists included in this project will offer complex narratives informed by historical experience, illuminating the role of place and location as central to the conception of itinerant identity.
