MOAD Presents The Body Electric

Sunday, Jan 17, 2021 at 12:00 AM - English

The Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) at Miami Dade College (MDC) presents The Body Electric, a major exhibition that looks at our fraught relationship to technology, particularly the increasingly inescapable interface between our bodies and screens. The remarkably varied art in the exhibition examines the last 50 years of artists addressing the way technological mediation has come to dominate our interactions with the world, with each other, and with ourselves.

In an age dominated by digital technology, The Body Electric explores themes of the real and the virtual, the organic and the artificial, moving from the world into the screen and back again. The exhibition presents an intergenerational and international group of 55artists and collectives that have seized upon the screen as a place to rethink the body and identity, with a particular emphasis on questions of gender, sexuality, class, and race. It contextualizes contemporary artists who today engage with digital technology and the influence of the Internet within a broader art historical narrative to reveal shared interests that emerge across generations, despite differing technological means.

Art Exhibit: The Undercurrent by Gustavo Prado

Sunday, Jan 17, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM - English

The Undercurrent is a series of sculptural installations that aim to amplify and manipulate the spectator's field of vision. Made from concave and convex mirrors of many sizes that Prado attaches to industrial metal structures, the sculptures create something akin to an anti-camera that reconfigures the viewer's vantage point and amplifies notions of (dis)location.

Art Exhibit: Garden Vibrations by Sharon Swift

Sunday, Jan 17, 2021 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM - English

My exhibition, "Garden Vibrations" was inspired by identifying feelings a Botanical Garden evoke, particularly, the tropical nature of the plants. I was curious about the elements in planning a Botanical Garden, a man made design celebrating life, diversity and beauty of nature. The additional element of sharing a border with the Holocaust Memorial adds to the experience. One design is refined, minimal and elegant contrasts the Garden with its exuberance of color, shape, and style. This added a deeper element to my paintings which was thought provoking and meaningful.
