MOCA Exhibitions

November  at MOCA 

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is pleased to announce its forthcoming exhibition My Name is Maryan—a monographic presentation of four decades of paintings, sculptures, drawings and film by the iconoclastic, ground-breaking Polish-born artist Maryan.

The exhibition opens on Nov. 17, 2021, and will remain on view until March 20, 2022. An exhibition reception will take place on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021, in conjunction with Miami Art Week.

Drawing upon new scholarship and a trove of never-before-exhibited works from the artist’s estate, My Name is Maryan will be the first retrospective to holistically examine all periods of Maryan’s life and work. Throughout the museum, Maryan’s extraordinary biography and prolific oeuvre represent a deeply moving monument to the perseverance of the human spirit and power of art to work through traumatic loss. Credited as being among the first artist-eyewitnesses to directly depict their experiences of the Shoah, Maryan's unique approach to figurative art strove to solidarity across cultures and generations.

CONVERSATIONS AT MOCA:  The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) is presenting a series of events, organized by “Michael Richards: Are You Down?” co-curators Melissa Levin and Alex Fialho, to commemorate the 20th anniversary of 9/11 and 20 years since artist Michael Richards’ passing.

Tragically, Richards passed away on September 11, 2001 while working in his Lower Manhattan Cultural Council World Views studio on the 92nd floor of World Trade Center, Tower One. At age 38, Richards was an emerging artist whose incisive aesthetic held immense promise to make him a leading figure in contemporary art. Coincidentally, flight and aviation were central themes for Richards as an exploration of freedom and escape, ascendance and descent.

This year 2021 the traditional art exhibitions in Miami will continue taking place in a lower scale despite the pandemic.

Last year all 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.


Most established smaller establishments like galleries, art centers and museums will continue to support the arts along with the City and Miami-Dade county cultural affairs department. 

The Miami Art week is scheduled to take place from December 2nd to the 12th 2021. The main art district in Miami named Wynwood, will hold several cultural events following all CDC and City recommendations to avoid the virus spread. Check art events in Wynwood during Miami Art Week 2021

MAR. 24-SEP. 20, 2020


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
