Upcoming Events

HamacaS - A Project by Liene Bosque

Museum, Art Talk
MOCA North Miami is presenting “HamacaS,” a socially engaged project by Liene Bosquê, coordinated by Ana Clara Silva, on view from February 8 through March 29, 2020. HamacaS explores the cultural dissonance and emotional displacement experienced by immigrants in the United States. The project consists of an interactive installation at the museum that will be activated through collective hammock weaving sessions and workshops. The project will offer a critical and expansive conversation around immigration with communities in Miami. As an integral part of the project, HamacaS will continue to develop and be presented throughout different locations in Miami after its inaugural run at MOCA North Miami.

HamacaS reconsiders the relational meaning of site and place for a group of people that both occupy several spaces at once and are rendered invisible in this country. The project asks us to imagine how immigrants carry place with them across borders and barriers. What purpose can a collective, shared space have for members of a community that is both villainized and erased at the same time? HamacaS is meant to act as a safe space for dialogue, debate, and understanding through engaging in making––the space between the hand and the mind that offers respite.

Liene Bosquê is a visual artist and art educator based in Miami. Bosquê’s artworks have been exhibited in museums and galleries in the United States, at MoMA PS1 in New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago, among other places. In 2016, she received the Emerging Artist Fellowship from the Socrates Sculpture Park in Queens, where she presented her first public sculpture.

HamacaS is funded by The Ellies, Miami’s visual arts awards, presented by Oolite Arts as well as the WaveMaker Grants program presented by Locust Projects, and is supported by The55project.

MOCA Moving Images: After the Magician

Art Talk, Museum
MOCA is pleased to present the world premiere and screening of Czech film maker Lea Petrikova’s 2020 film After the Magician which is inspired by the life of surrealist painter and poet Alice Rahon. In 1947, the surrealist artist Alice Rahon created her only film The Magician, yet the film got lost before its completion. After the Magician re-narrates the lost film and explores circumstances of its production. The project After the Magician is produced by Perfilm, co-produced by UMPRUM, and was supported by the Czech Film Fund and the Zlín Film Talent.
The screening is followed by a Q&A with filmmaker Lea Petrikova. As a graduate from the Film and TV School of Academy of Performing Arts (FAMU) and the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (UMPRUM), both in Prague, Petrikova works as an artist, filmmaker and theorist. Since 2017 she has been a PhD Candidate at FAMU, Prague. Her works received several awards (Talents Contemporaines 2013 shortlist, Fondation Francois Schneider, FR; ESSL ART AWARD CEE shortlist 2015, CZ; Special Jury Award, Madatac Festival 2016, ES;) and were presented at Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, UK (2017, 2018), Marienbad Film Festival, CZ (2017, 2018) and Athens Digital Arts Festival, GR (2016).
