The Transcultural Pilgrim Exhibit – Don’t Miss Miami Art Museum’s Tribute to Joe andBediaMay 11, 2012
Opening on May 24, 2012, you won’t want to miss the Miami Art Museum’s newest exhibit – The Transcultural Pilgrim: Three Decades of Work By Jose Bedia. This show features a collection of 35 beautiful pieces from Jose Bedia and will only be available for a few months until September 2.
Just who is Jose Bedia? Well, as you may have guessed from the title of the exhibit, he is a man who has had his finger in several different cookie jars. He originally was born in Cuba, but through the 80s and early 90s he moved to Mexico, and finally in 1993 he made his way to Miami. However, through that time and since then he’s visited countless other countries and environments, including the Amazon rainforest and the African Savannah. One thing has remained constant, however – wherever he went, he absorbed himself completely in the culture he found himself in, and used them to inspire his work. Hence the name of the show, Transcultural Pilgrim, stems from his diverse journey through several cultures.
This exhibition is designed to display and contrast the timeline of Jose Bedia’s work, many of which contain harrowing personal references and address touching philosophical issues, enough to leave a lasting impression. Don’t miss this limited time exhibit, and if possible you should try to catch the opening on May 24th.
