Details
Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), North Miami will host a reception for its current group exhibition Monarchs: Brown and Native Contemporary Artists in the Path of the Butterfly, now on view through August 5. 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 Michoacn, Mexico and back. 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. Reception free for MOCA members and $10 for non-members.
