Join us for two exciting new exhibitions! Good Luck with the Sun showcases the photography of internationally renowned artist Krista Steinke as she explores how the natural world impacts our lives in ways both obvious and mysterious. Using pinhole cameras, homemade filters, and other experimental techniques, she draws meaning from her materials and process, often working at the intersection of abstraction and photographic recording.

Botanica Animalia by Catalina Villegas is an exhibition of lively illustrations of the natural world. Featuring buoyant images in black and white, which transition into colorful flora and fauna, her work is a vibrant homage to the living things all around us.

Free opening reception April 12, 7-9 pm. Open to public until July 5, 2019.

Diana creates pieces that represent both profound and unexceptional situations. There’s a movement, which brings us to another dimension. Using many layers of vibrant colors, there’s an emotional background of concrete moments that take up space and time.

The graphic stains and lines are symbols intended to unite the thoughts between the spiritual experience and how it is felt. Her encompassing and intimate canvas paintings lead to the inner world.

Where The Oceans Meet Opening Reception

Saturday, May 25, 2019 at 6:00 PM - English

This compelling transnational exhibition of modern and contemporary art considers how crossing borders continues to shape our world.

The international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition investigates the ways borders form identities and negotiate imaginary spaces. The artists' inquiries range across mediums and genres, and attempt to answer urgent questions that concern us all today.

Show more >>

Where the Oceans Meet stems from the pioneering literary, anthropological, and philosophical work of two Caribbean writers, the Cuban painter, scholar, and ethnologist Lydia CABRERA (1899-1991) and the Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Edouard GLISSANT (1928-2011). Embodied by the works of art in the exhibition, their ideas explore how art can think and break through barriers of history, geography, and culture.

Where the Oceans Meet will offer a platform for questioning colonial and modern thought, and placing it into perspective. Its themes resonate in Miami, a city where oceans meet, so often imagined as a crossroads of the Americas and a space of transition par excellence.

The exhibition is curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal.

Sunday, May 26, 2019 from 3:00 PM to 4:00 PM - English

Artists Daniel Boyd and Andros Zins-Browne join curators Asad Raza and Rina Carvajal to consider ideas that underlie MOAD’s new exhibition Where the Oceans Meet.

  • How have Lydia Cabrera and Édouard Glissant’s writings and methodologies influenced practices in contemporary art and curation?
  • How do notions the two Caribbean writers explored (such as globality, creolization, and cosmology) help us make sense of historic narratives and our contemporary moment?
  • What does it mean to think, live, and act where the oceans meet.

This event inaugurates the Museum of Art and Design at MDC's new exhibition, Where the Oceans Meet (May 26 to September 29, 2019) curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal. 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 Édouard Glissant. The international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition considers notions of shifting and porous borders geographic, national, cultural, social, racial, ethnic, and linguistic and how crossing borders has shaped our world.

The Chaos Opera Performance by Andros Zins-Browne

Sunday, May 26, 2019 at 4:00 PM - English

Zins-Browne's The Chaos Opera draws upon Glissant's defense of chaos as a mechanism for embracing difference. The performance brings togethervoices from diverse musical traditions R&B, bolero, death metal, rap, and opera to explore how different voices might cohabitate in the same space without capitulating, assimilating, or forcing cohesion. Rather than the idealized harmonies of "fusion" music, it asks how different voices can maintain their opacity in relation to each other, and how such a cacophony might allow new forms, voices, and hybrid languages to emerge. The Chaos Opera will be performed by Dyna Edyne, Michale Grafals, Celeste Landeros, Niuvis Martin, and Nad Pitt.
