The World on View

As the world comes to town for art fair season in Miami, the MDC Museum of Art + Design (MOAD) is seizing the moment to showcase artwork from different corners of the globe.

Q&A: Nine Contemporary Cuban Artists comes to the Museum Nov. 30, 2016 through Jan. 15, 2017. The timely exhibition will offer a multifaceted critical vision featuring works in various media by Cuban artists who live and work in Cuba, including Alexandre Arrechea, Alejandro Campins, Javier Castro, Humberto Díaz, Fidel García, Alejandro González, Lorena Gutiérrez, Tony Labat and Fernando Rodríguez.

The public opening will be preceded by a guided tour by the show’s curator, art critic Cristina Vives, on Nov. 29, and followed by a panel discussion and Q&A with Vives and the artists on Dec. 1.

Also opening in time for the art fair crowds, Sunkoo Yuh returns to the Museum for his first solo exhibition in Miami. Sunkoo Yuh: Grafted Stories features the South Korean-born artist’s large-scale ceramic sculptures, porcelain tiles and works on paper.

Created over a 12-year period, the pieces interweave a tale of cultural integration, spiritual discovery and creating order from chaos.

“My ceramic sculptures express not only physical realities but also psychological realities, my relationship with people and life experiences, encompassing front and back, inside and outside, present and past memories,” said Yuh.

The show opens to the public Nov. 30.

Admission to all MDC Museum of Art + Design exhibitions is free. For more info on these and upcoming shows, call 305-237-7710 or visit
