Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami presents Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen

Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen – co-curated by Andrea Andersson & Julia Bryan-Wilson

Dates: November 26, 2019 – March 29, 2020

Reception: December 5, 2019

Details: The first major US solo exhibition of the influential Chilean-born artist, “Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen” presents performance, sculpture, drawing, video, text, and site-specific installation from the artist’s practice since the late 1960s. The work on view reframes dematerialization as more than a formal consequence of 1960s conceptualism, as it is commonly understood, but as a formal consequence of radical climate change as well—and in both cases—as a process that shapes public memory and responsibility. Cecilia Vicuña: About to Happen” is organized by the Contemporary ArtsCenter, New Orleans (CAC), and co-curated by Andrea Andersson and Julia Bryan-Wilson.

Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami presents Alice Rahon's "Poetic Invocations"

Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations” – curated by Teresa Arcq

Dates: November 26, 2019 – March 29, 2020

Reception: December 5, 2019

Details: “Poetic Invocations” marks the first solo show dedicated to Rahon’s work in the U.S. in 55 years. The exhibition examines a robust art-historical moment that emerged in 1940 as an international community of artists fled World War II in Europe and settled in Mexico. It will feature approximately 30 works including paintings, works on paper, assemblages, as well as archival material such as the Dyn journal, original poems and manuscripts and photographs to put an emphasis on Rahon´s oeuvre as a whole. The exhibition will explore five fundamental themes: art as poetic invocation, the power of the immemorial past, the journal that challenged limits, the volcano and the Mexican landscape and light: the dilution of inside and outside, and the metaphorical experience of the inside out: fiestas and popular art in Mexico.
