Art Exhibition: Green by Moira Holohan

Next date: Sep 22, 2019 - click here for time schedule - English

Moira Holohan's exhibition Green involves the use of woven meditative practice while exploring virtual time and space. Through a series of hand woven screens with hemp and bamboo cord Holohan investigates chroma key compositing, better known as green screen, as a playful subjective color and area which can exist as a pictorial organic object and/or a portal to a virtual transient site. The exhibition is along side the lush and vibrant vegetation of The Miami Beach Botanical Gardens further investigating the tension between the natural/real and virtual world.

Discussion in Situ with Martin A. Tsang

Discussion in Situ with Martin A. Tsang on Sunday, September 29, 2019 from 4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

MOAD presents a series of public programs related to its current exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet. Rather than a formal sit-down lecture, MOAD's "Discussions In Situ' are engaging, conversational, and scholarly exhibition tours lead by a wide array of interdisciplinary experts. While pointing to specific art work and archival material on view, Tsang sparks a conversation on "The Hidden Cabrera,' highlighting Cabrera's biography and research methods.

Where the Oceans Meet is an exhibition of modern and contemporary art that resonates with the pioneering thought of two Caribbean writers, Lydia Cabrera and Edouard Glissant. The show is comprised of an international group of artists and collectives consider notions of shifting and porous borders€”and how crossing borders has shaped our world. They articulate various aspects of the two scholars' thoughts on race, diaspora, colonialization, creolization, language, and territory, particularly with regards to Miami's position in a world that never stops turning.

Where the Oceans Meet will be on view until January 12, 2020.

Diago: The Pasts of this Afro-Cuban Present
(October 24, 2019 – January 19, 2020)

A leading member of the new Afro-Cuban cultural movement, visual artist Juan Roberto Diago (b. 1971) has produced a body of work that offers a revisionist history of the Cuban nation. His “history,” a term that he frequently inserts in his works using the visual language of graffiti, contradicts the official narrative of a racially harmonious nation created through the selfless efforts of generous white patriots. Diago’s Cuba is a nation built on pain, rape, greed, and the enslavement of millions of displaced Africans, a nation still grappling with the long-term effects of slavery and colonialism. To him, slavery is not the past, but a daily experience of racism and discrimination.

Africa is not a root, but a wellspring of cultural and personal affirmation, the ancestors that sustain him in his journey. This exhibit examines Diago’s creative work over the course of his entire career. It traces his singular efforts to construct new pasts, the pasts required to explain the racial tensions of contemporary Cuba, the pasts of this Afro-Cuban present. Guest curated by Dr. Alejandro de la Fuente (Robert Woods Bliss Professor of Latin American History and Economics, Professor of African and African American Studies, Director of the Afro-Latin American Research Institute at the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, and Chair of the Cuba Studies Program at Harvard University).

José Carlos Martinat: American Echo Chamber

Dec 4, 2019 to Jan 26, 2020 - various times - English

For PAMM's double-height gallery, Jose Carlos Martinat created American Echo Chamber (2018), an installation that responds to the amplification and reinforcement of ideas in the current social and political landscape. This large-scale work is composed of mechanical light sculptures that collectively generate a dramatic and entertaining space for visual consumption. The sculptures are inspired by symbols of both American and Peruvian cultures ranging from historical images such as the political cartoon "Join, or Die" attributed to founding father Benjamin Franklin to popular internet memes. These symbols are often composed of images related to violence, manipulation, racism, or migration. The artist also includes artisanal pyrotechnic castle fireworks from Lima. By creating a space that amplifies the consumption of these symbols, Martinat compares the contemporary political scene to an echo chamber, emphasizing a dynamic in which people seek information from media outlets that reinforce their beliefs as an unconscious exercise of validation and prejudice.
