Produced by artists who accompanied Cook on his three voyages for the Royal Society from 1768-1779, the images were reproduced for Europeans fascinated with exploration and travel. www.lowemuseum.org MARCH 13–JULY 20 VANITAS: FASHION AND ART This exhibit examines the theme of vanitas as expressed in avant garde and haute couture fashion, contemporary paintings and other media. As a meditation on the ephemerality of earthly pleasures and worldly accomplishments, vanitas artworks suggest life’s transience and offer representations of momento mori. www.bassmuseum.org MARCH 13–AUGUST 31 EDOUARD DUVAL-CARRIÉ: IMAGINED LANDSCAPES This exhibition involves a series of new works by the Haitianborn, Miami-based artist Edouard Duval-Carrié. Known for his innovative adaptions of traditional Haitian iconography, addressing social and political conditions, Duval-Carrié presents a series of paintings and sculptures entirely in black and silver glitter. www.pamm.org APRIL 11–AUGUST 10 GRAVITY AND GRACE: MONUMENTAL WORKS BY EL ANATSUI This show features more than 30 works in metal and wood. The globally renowned contemporary artist El Anatsui converts found materials into a new type of media that lies between sculpture and painting, combining aesthetic traditions from his birth country, Ghana; his home in Nsukka, Nigeria; and the global history of abstraction. www.bassmuseum.org APRIL 16 –JULY 12 THE INFLUENCERS II: 1966-1978 — PROMINENT WORKS FROM THE MDC PERMANENT ART COLLECTION Prominent works from the Miami Dade College Permanent Art Collection highlights works by some of most influential artists in historical and local context.
