PMA staff members have chosen eight works of art to cover. When you visit the galleries you will see personal reflections accompanying each of these works. By depriving access to these works of art, we invite you to pause and consider the void that AIDS has created in the art world specifically, and our community more broadly. Directly or indirectly, the AIDS crisis impacts us all. With such devastating loss, symbolized here by shrouded works of art, we are left to imagine how the world would be different today if all who have succumbed to this disease were still with us.

Maine’s presence in the North Atlantic is changing; the state is poised to become the eastern gateway to the Arctic. Today, Maine is leading efforts to combat climate change, strengthen trade relationships, and exchange cutting-edge research to diversify and expand Maine’s economy as well as the PMA’s efforts to create an international context for art of this region for the very first time. This two-part panel presents information about Maine’s role in the North across various sectors as well as new opportunities for artistic exchange. PMA Associate Curator of Contemporary Art Jaime DeSimone leads a discussion with international curators about the upcoming North Atlantic Triennial. This program promises to shed light on Maine’s growing economic, artistic, and cultural interconnectivity with the nations of the North Atlantic.
