Where The Oceans Meet Opening Reception

Where The Oceans Meet Opening Reception

Museum
This compelling transnational exhibition of modern and contemporary art considers how crossing borders continues to shape our world. The international group of thirty-eight artists and collectives in the exhibition investigates the ways borders form identities and negotiate imaginary spaces. The artists’ inquiries range across mediums and genres, and attempt to answer urgent questions that concern us all today. Where the Oceans Meet stems from the pioneering literary, anthropological, and philosophical work of two Caribbean writers, the Cuban painter, scholar, and ethnologist Lydia Cabrera (1899–1991) and the Martinican philosopher, poet, and literary critic Édouard Glissant (1928–2011). Embodied by the works of art in the exhibition, their ideas explore how art can think and break through barriers of history, geography, and culture. Where the Oceans Meet will offer a platform for questioning colonial and modern thought, and placing it into perspective. Its themes resonate in Miami, a city where oceans meet, so often imagined as a crossroads of the Americas and a space of transition par excellence. The exhibition is curated by Hans Ulrich Obrist, Asad Raza, Gabriela Rangel, and Rina Carvajal. Free Parking at MDC Wolfson Parking Garage at 500 NE 2nd Ave, Miami, FL 33130.
