The Pérez Art Museum Miami (Pamm) has acquired a large work on masonite by the Puerto Rican artist Chemi Rosado-Seijo of tracks left by skateboards from the Nada fair (until 10 December). Untitled #1 (2017) is from the artist’s series One Thousand Four Hundred and Seventy One Rides. The purchase, from the San Juan gallery Embajada, was made possible by the Nada acquisition gift fund for Pamm, which the fair’s organisers launched this year. “We are very excited for the partnership with Nada, and even more delighted to acquire Chemi’s work—an artist we have been following for a long time. It was a unanimous decision,” says María Elena Ortiz, a curator at Pamm.
