Through the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA)’s continued efforts to include diverse voices and perspectives, the museum is offering a robust series of educational and public programming throughout the month of December. MOCA is also proud to announce its Miami Art Week exhibitions: “Didier William: Nou Kite Tout Sa Dèyè,” Leah Gordon’s “Kanaval,” and Chire “VantaBlack” Regans’ “To What Lengths.”
“Didier William: Nou Kite Tout Sa Dèyè” (through April 16, 2023) is the largest solo presentation of Didier William’s career. Translated as “We’ve Left That All Behind,” the show presents an in-depth look at the Haitian-born, North Miami-raised artist’s career and memory among the very neighborhood where he once grew up. Curated by Erica Moiah James, Ph.D., the exhibition will feature over forty works spanning multiple mediums and including some of his newest paintings. Complementing the painted work and speaking to the close relationship of painting and printmaking in William’s practice, are new drawings and artist books. The show also includes William’s first monumental sculpture: a 12-ft.-tall wooden body emblematic of a religious column present in Haitian worship rituals.
