Among the featured artists are: Rita Ackermann, Daniel Arsham, Richard Artschwager, Tracey Emin, Naomi Fisher, Dara Friedman, Peter Halley, Isaac Julien, Mark Handforth, Ragnar Kjartansson, Malcolm Morley, Laura Owens, Jorge Pantoja, Richard Phillips, Jack Pierson, Matthew Ritchie, David Salle, and Shinique Smith among others. Artists conduct conversations with each other, providing audience members with exceptional insight into their work and experience. Each participating artist has played a role in MOCA’s 15-year history. Their work has been featured in at least one MOCA exhibition, and many are included in the museum’s permanent collection.
The discussions will be moderated by MOCA Executive Director and Chief Curator Bonnie Clearwater who remarked “This will be a historic event, with artists discussing the role MOCA’s exhibitions have played in Miami’s emergence as an international art center and in their careers.”
Tickets for Artist-to-Artist are $25 for MOCA members; $50 for non-members. The ticket price includes admission to all the talks. Seating is limited and advance ticket purchase is required. For tickets, please call 305 893 6211.
Artist-to-Artist is part of a two day celebration of MOCA’s 15th Anniversary that includes a Dinner Celebration and After Party at the museum on Saturday, February 25, that reunites many of MOCA’s past artists and some of the top collectors in the world. A transformative force in South Florida, over its 15-year history, MOCA has introduced innovative exhibitions by local and international artists, groundbreaking education initiatives and dynamic public programs, truly earning its reputation as the spark that ignited Miami as an international art hub.
