MOCA Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami
This April 2021 the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is hosting:
“Michael Richards: Are You Down?” ― the first museum retrospective of the work of Michael Richards. The Afro-Caribbean artist’s sculptural and drawing practice reflects on issues of racial inequity, anti-blackness, and diasporic identity.
Richards used the language of metaphor to investigate racial inequity and the tension between assimilation and exclusion in his art. Aviation, flight and escape were central themes, gesturing toward both repression and reprieve from social injustices, and the simultaneous possibilities of uplift and downfall, often in the context of the historical and ongoing oppression of Black people.
Co-curated by Alex Fialho and Melissa Levin, “Michael Richards: Are You Down?” marks the largest exhibition of Richards’ work to date and will be on view from April 21 through Oct. 10, 2021.
MIAMI ART WEEK
This year 2020 the traditional art exhibitions in Miami will continue taking place in a lower scale despite the cancellation of the major art shows.
The big art shows and fairs were cancelled simply because of the volume of attendance that could become a risk of spread during the pandemic.

EYE TO I: SELF PORTRAITS FROM THE NATIONAL PORTRAIT GALLERY
MAR. 24-SEP. 20, 2020
BOCA RATON MUSEUM OF ART
Eye to I is especially appropriate in the age of the “selfie.” Organized and drawn from the collection of the Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery, this exhibition explores how American artists have portrayed themselves through painting, drawing, photography, and video since the beginning of the 20th century. Artists in the exhibition approach self-representation from realist renderings to alter-egos that can reveal or obfuscate their inner lives.
Address: 501 Plaza real, Boca Raton Florida 33432
