Roberto Obregon Archive from the Carolina and Fernando Eseverri Collection
Curated by Jesus Fuenmayor
Conceptual art emerged as a movement in the 1960s and was based on the premise that the idea (or concept) behind the work is more important than the material manifestation of the object. The primary motif in Obregón’s body of work is the concept of cyclical time and the physical, bodily decay of roses. The innovative work of the late Venezuelan artist Roberto Obregón (1946–2003), made him a key figure in global conceptualism.

Tesoro: Pepe Mar’s Love Letter to The Frost
Curated by Pepe Mar
Mar envisions the Museum’s permanent collection of art from Africa, the Americas, Asia, Australia, and Europe, as special treasures and presents them as gifts to the public.
The museum resides in a beautiful 46,000 square foot building designed by Yann Weymouth and situated in the Florida International University Campus, in the heart of FIU’s Avenue of the Arts.
The Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum’s mission is to provide transformative experiences through art; collect, exhibit, and interpret art across cultures; and advance FIU’s stature as a top tier research university.
One of the largest academic art museums in South Florida, the Patricia & Phillip Frost Art Museum provides the community with free access to world-class art that spans cultures and time periods. The museum started as a small space in FIU’s Primera Casa building in 1978. As the collection and programming grew, the university recognized the need for a dedicated museum space. The museum now resides in a beautiful 46,000 square foot building designed by Yann Weymouth and situated in the heart of FIU’s Avenue of the Arts. The museum opened its doors in 2008.
