Pérez Art Museum Miami Launches PAMMTV, An On-Demand Streaming Service for Video Art

The channel provides free access to world-class films and video artworks

Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM) launched PAMMTV, a streaming service bringing video art from the museum to computers worldwide. The museum will stream cutting-edge, international video art from its collection, alongside selections from film festivals, guest curators, and regional filmmakers. All videos are free and available on web browsers, mobile phones, tables and Apple TV.

“Digital Engagement at PAMM means scaling the mission of the museum beyond the walls of the building,” said PAMM Director of Digital Engagement Jay Mollica. “One way we are doing this is extending the museum’s galleries into virtual spaces.” 

 The inaugural selections focus on video art from the museum’s permanent collection—including pieces by artists Wangechi Mutu, Youssef Nabil — as well as works from the region of South Florida, and films curated by Third Horizon showcasing cinema from the Caribbean and its Diaspora. 

“In recent years, there have been substantial shifts in how people engage with art, underscoring the notion that art should be readily available and accessible beyond the confines of a museum’s physical space,” said PAMM Director Franklin Sirmans.

In addition to artwork from the museum’s permanent collection, PAMMTV features works by South Florida artists including Keisha Rae Witherspoon, Faren Humes, Monica Sorelle, Cristine Brache, and Kevin Contento.

The launch of PAMMTV comes on the heels of various digital initiatives including a renovation of the museum’s website and virtual reality gallery, supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation’s Digital Engagement Initiatives Grant.
