MOCA: Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly” 

Benefit/Fundraiser, Museum, Gallery

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) will present the group exhibition “Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly” from May 24 – Aug. 5, 2018. Curated by Risa Puleo, the exhibition features the works of 37 artists who are native to the Americas separated into conceptual categories including indigenous, immigrant and assimilated.      The exhibition focuses on the monarch, the only butterfly that migrates in two directions, as a geographic range and a metaphor. Monarchs (specifically those of eastern North American) fly from southern Canada through the Midwest on their way to Michoacán, Mexico and back.  This survey of artists from or living in the path of the monarch, brings to life the Dakota Access Pipeline and the call to build a wall in Mexico as unrelenting issues that create challenges for people native to the Americas — being separated by conceptual categories of indigenous, immigrant, and assimilated.    Like the butterfly, which takes at least four generations to completely navigate its way through middle America with inherited knowledge, these artists also use inherited cultural memory to showcase and explore historical narratives of their respective heritage through abstract techniques.    Artists incorporate processes such as basket weaving, beadwork, copper hammering, and quilting, and materials such as stucco, plaster, ceramics, and feathers, that hold a high degree of resonance within native, immigrant, and brown aesthetics and vernacular cultures. The exhibition also charts the movement of styles and approaches through large spans of time across the Americas, speaking to an inherited means of production and genealogy of form.  Admission to MOCA is $5, free for MOCA members and North Miami residents. An artist reception will take place on Thursday, June 14, 2018 with an admission cost of $10 to the general public, free to MOCA members and North Miami residents.

Jazz at MOCA: LaVie

Jazz, Art Show

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is celebrating Haitian Heritage Month with a special performance by singer LaVie as a part of its monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series. LaVie’s music breaks through the barriers of traditional gospel by harmonizing her sensational collaboration of Soul, R&B, and Neo-Soul musical styles.   LaVie exemplifies her name, which means the “the life” in French, in her music with her energetic stage performances and her infectious personality. LaVie uses her eclectic contemporary sound as a vehicle to encourage and empower her audience to enjoy life.     The public is invited to dance under the stars and enjoy the diverse rhythms of LaVie, rain or shine. Guests may also enjoy MOCA’s exhibition “Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly” by donation. This event is free and open to the public.
