In a time when we are all confronting our own empty spaces and trying to negotiate a new reality of distance and separation, we are all learning to experience connections in new and innovative ways.
We delve into this exploration in our online exhibition – Carolina Sardi: Empty Spaces. Throughout the duration of this program we will present various chapters which explore the work and space of the artist through different platforms and media.
Chapter 1 will provide us with an intimate look at the studio of Carolina Sardi, giving us the opportunity to look behind the curtain with a virtual tour of her space and process, including examination of completed works and the various stages and tools involved in getting to a finished work.
Future chapters will delve into the history of the gallery’s experience with Carolina Sardi beginning in 2007 and show the evolution of our relationship, working through exhibitions, installation of commissioned works and collaboration with museums and institutions.
We will further explore the evolution of Sardi’s work through interviews, images and videos starting with her studies in Buenos Aires to her work at the Art Center South Florida and beyond.
Finally, we will examine the many formats that her work has taken on, from wall mounted sculpture, to monumental outdoor installations, to small scale wearable art.
Pan American Art Projects was established in 2001 with the mission to exhibit and promote established and emerging artists from North, Central and South America, providing a context for dialogue between the various regions. We represent a strong roster of contemporary artists of the Americas and hold a collection of important works from Cuba, Argentina, the U.S. and the Caribbean. Our programming reflects these complementary arenas providing a comprehensive historical context for contemporary tendencies in the visual arts from these regions.
The gallery was born from the personal collection of our owner, Robert Borlenghi, who as a founding member of MOCA Los Angeles made his first trip to Haiti in 1990 and found many great artists that were relatively unknown to collectors in the U.S. He made it his mission to collect and exhibit underrepresented artists from Haiti, Jamaica and later Cuba. This mission then transferred to our gallery when we opened in Dallas in 2001, when we began adding actively represented artists from North and South America.
