On view Tuesday – Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Thursdays till 9 p.m., new works by Dominican-born artist Firelei Báez in the artist’s first solo museum show, Bloodlines. Báez’s Focus Gallery will feature a series of new paintings created specifically for PAMM. “Báez’s new works embody a provocative investigation on decorative elements, textiles, hair designs, and body ornaments that explores methods of resistance in black communities within the United States and the Caribbean. Her exceptional paintings show a profound appreciation of diasporic histories, as well as new contemporary approaches towards painting.” said María Elena Ortiz, the exhibition’s curator and an assistant curator at PAMM.
