Celebrate the opening of Julio Le Parc: Form into Action with a live performance by eccentric electric rock band Jacuzzi Boys on Thursday, November 17th at the PAMM.

Julio Le Parc is an Argentinian artist born in 1928, known for his avant-garde works with a political bent. He co-founded Groupe de Recherche d’Art Visuel (GRAV) in 1960. Although the group dissolved in 1968, Le Parc continued to work simultaneously as an individual artist and as part of international collaboratives, particularly those involved in politically denouncing totalitarian regimes.  Throughout his life, he has served as a important conduit between Latin American activist artists and the Paris art scene.  

Representing Argentina at the 1966 Venice Biennale, Le Parc won the Grand International Prize for Painting as an individual artist. And his work has been the subject of numerous shows in both Europe and Latin America.

German Pop artist Thomas Bayrle's first US solo museum exhibition, "One Day on Success Street" is now open at ICA Miami. The exhibition dedicated to the artist features over 75 works from the 1960s through the present day, showcasing works across a range of mediums including collage, painting, and sculpture. 

A highlight of the show is Wire Madonna, the artist's largest sculpture to date, was commissioned by the ICA for the museum's unique Atrium Gallery, and depicts a madonna and child in steel. The artist is known for his exploration of the impact of technology on humans through pop art and conceptual forms. 

This will be the last exhibit in the museum's current location before it moves to its new home in the Design District in 2017. The exhibit closes March 27th.
