Yemenwed is an art collective founded in 2006 in New York City. They create collaborative works, which synthesize the artistic focus of its varying members in the fields of architecture, painting, sculpture, animation, performance and music. The group maintains an active interest in the vocabulary of mainstream popular culture and its conventions, as well as entertainment value and notions of beauty. Each piece invariably reflects the different personal aesthetic and conceptual interests of the individual artists forming the work. Yemenwed has released several publications and has participated in exhibitions and performances at Palais de Tokyo, Tate Modern, MOMA P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, Portland Institute for Contemporary Art TBA:10, Performa 09, Fake Estate Gallery, 179 Canal, Hessel Museum of Art, Asia Song Society, and Jack Hanley Gallery, among other venues.
Pérez Art Museum Miami’s PAMM Researcher-in-Residence program invites individuals active in the creative and cultural sector around the world, to South Florida to explore ideas relevant to their work and to engage with the community through public programs guided by each researcher’s personal practices and points of interest. Through an ongoing partnership, downtown Miami arts organization, Cannonball, houses the visiting artists, curators, critics, writers and collectives, and presents related programs.
