Reception: Friday, March 18 from 6pm to 8pm

The Art Museum of the Americas is pleased to invite you to an intimate reception for the exhibition Geandy Pavón Quarantine: 40 Days and 40 Nights, a timely and imaginative photographic exploration of life under quarantine.

A weekend visit to his partner Imara López in the early days of the pandemic turned into an indefinite lockdown in Buffalo, NY that would dramatically change the course of their lives. Anticipating a short visit, Pavón had packed only essential gear. This basic equipment would become the primary medium of expression and provide a challenge for his explorations.

These photographs from quarantine chronicle a journey into topics such as the reinterpretations of known works of art, to religious themes, to Classical mythology. Unfolding historical moments have also threaded their way through the narrative. In addition to the body of photographs in the exhibition, Pavón created process videos to further narrate some of these moments.

Geandy Pavón is a multi-disciplinary artist who explores the ills that plague global society and expresses these observations through paint, photography and video. Pavón’s work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions such as Caribbean: Crossroads of the World, at The Studio Museum in Harlem and PAMM; The X Files Bienal at El Museo del Barrio; and the Annenberg Space for Photography as part of Pacific Time LA/LA.

Please wear a well-fitting face mask and maintain six feet of distance from other visitors.
