Museum of Contemporary Art
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) is dedicated to making contemporary art accessible to diverse audiences – especially underserved populations – through the collection, preservation and exhibition of the best of contemporary art and its art historical influences.
MOCA continues its pandemic-hit Art on the Plaza series, where visitors can walk right up to the museum’s breezy courtyard and view rotating exhibits for free. This fall brings Autumn Casey’s “Clint and April” through October 7, a pair of illuminated “swans” intended as a meditation on love and mating for life. The courtyard also hosts free jazz concerts the last Friday of every month, with Karina Iglesais and Nu-Thang performing in August and Peruvian trumpet master Dante Vargas in September. Inside the museum, MOCA is showcasing two Miami Art Week breakout artists. Didier Willian: Nou Kite Tout Sa Deye, and photographer Leah Gordon’s 20-year black and white photo retrospective of Haiti, Kanaval, run through April 16, 2023.
