As the 2018 FIFA World Cup nears, more and more soccer-related events will be popping up around the world and throughout Miami-Dade County. One such event starts tonight, as Pérez Art Museum Miami is hosting the opening ceremony for its latest exhibition: “The World’s Game: Fútbol and Contemporary Art.”
PAMM members will get a sneak preview today, as only they will be able to view the exhibition from 10 a.m. through 9 p.m. At 9 through 11 p.m., the exhibit will be open to the public for the first time.
An arty party
According to the PAMM website:
The night will begin with happy hour on the terrace with DJ Esta. Inside the museum, dancer, playwright, and arts activist Marc Bamuthi Joseph will incorporate portions of his works /peh-LO-tah/ and Moving & Passing to deliver a fútbol framed freedom suite about the global sport rich with cultural intricacies. The lecture will be followed by a special performance by Bateria Unidos de Miami Samba and Batucada, who will lead guests out to our terrace with Samba beats, where the celebration continues with music by Mr. Pauer. Mr. Pauer’s Electrópico set will deliver percussive rhythms from the tropics and all around the world.
The exhibition is scheduled to run until Sept. 2, 2018.
