Join us in celebrating the 17th annual Breakfast in the Park. Each year since 2004, as an official event during Art Basel Miami Beach, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum has welcomed visitors to enjoy a complimentary breakfast, a lecture by a noted artist, and guided tours of the Sculpture Park. This event is free and open to the public thanks to our Presenting Partner, West Kendall Baptist Hospital.
This year our guest speaker is noted artist, architect, and filmmaker, Alfredo Jaar. He has participated in the Biennales of Venice (1986, 2007, 2009, 2013), Sao Paulo (1987, 1989, 2010, 2021) as well as Documenta (1987, 2002). Jaar has realized more than seventy public interventions around the world. Over sixty monographic publications have been published about his work. He became a Guggenheim Fellow in 1985 and a MacArthur Fellow in 2000. He received Chile's National Prize in 2013, the Hiroshima Art Prize in 2018, and the Hasselblad Award in 2020.
His work can be found in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art and Guggenheim Museum, New York; Art Institute of Chicago and Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; MOCA and LACMA, Los Angeles; MASP, Museu de Arte de São Paulo; TATE, London; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Centro Reina Sofia, Madrid; Moderna Museet, Stockholm; MAXXI and MACRO, Rome; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlaebeck; Hiroshima City Museum of Contemporary Art and Tokushima Modern Art Museum, Japan; M+, Hong Kong; and dozens of institutions and private collections worldwide.
