MOCA hosts opening reception for PÒTOPRENS

Last night MOCA hosted it’s opening reception for “PÒTOPRENS: The Urban Artists of Port-au-Prince” 

In conjunction with Haitian Heritage Month, the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami is presenting “PÒTOPRENS: The Urban Artists of Port-au-Prince” which brings together the work of over 20 artists working in the Haitian capital. 

The exhibition features work that illuminates the history, music, politics, religion, magic, architecture, art, and literature that intersect in Port-au-Prince, enabling the viewer to reflect upon the past and speculate about the future of this vital city and its country.

Co-curated by Haitian-American artist and curator Edouard Duval-Carrié and British artist and curator Leah Gordon, PÒTOPRENS is a large-scale exhibition of sculptures, photographs, and films, accompanied by a recreated Port-au-Prince barbershop as well as extensive public programming. 

The exhibition is on view from April 23 – August 11, 2019.
