Pérez Art Museum Miami Presents Los Jaichackers in First Official Event

Recently, one of Miami's cultural nerve centers, the Miami Art Museum in downtown Miami, closed its doors for the last time and was officially put to bed and laid to rest. But fear not - the museum will open a new set of doors in its reincarnated form as the Pérez Art Museum Miami at Museum Park near the very beginning of the MacArthur Causeway come December. And for those who've set themselves up as friends of the museum by lining its coffers, PAMM will host its first event: a fundraiser at the Standard.

This Thursday, the Pérez Art Museum Miami and the Standard will be hosting an evening with the multimedia performance duo Los Jaichackers, whose bodies of combined work span from New York to Phoenix, from Mexico City to LA. This will be the second collaboration between PAMM and the duo of Eamon Ore-Giron and Julio Cesar Morales, and will be a precursor for their performance during the Museum's opening weekend in the midst of Art Basel in December.
