Current exhibition

The Museum of Contemporary Art of the Americas proudly unveiled the exhibition, Old Friends, to its audience. This showcase offers the South Florida community an opportunity to explore recent works from the esteemed American artist, Jo Ann Rothschild, and the renowned Cuban artist, Rigoberto Mena.

May 5th - Jun 9th | 2023

For the past six years, the erstwhile Kendall Art Center - now reimagined as the Museum of Contemporary Art of the Americas - has devoted itself to nurturing a profound dialogue surrounding painting, encouraging a spirit of experimentation and a multiplicity of perspectives. 'Old Friends' exemplifies this fruitful discourse between two maestros of abstract art. This dialogue was sparked by Rigoberto Mena's journey to Boston in 2000, some 23 years ago. Mena, traversing to the United States, participated in the exhibition 'Cuba, Cuba, three contemporary artists', showcased alongside fellow artists Alejandro Lazo and Pango at the Espacio 12 gallery.

April 28th | 2023

In recent years, Cirenaica Moreira has frequently delved into the realm of performance art. Since the 90s, Moreira has focused—through the representation of her own body—on challenging the political discourse expressed as yet another projection of toxic masculinity. She analyzes the female body from the perspectives of sexuality, gender, and race. Much of her work as a photographer transports us to dreamlike or unreal contexts where the subject has evolved at its own pace, untouched by the haste and agitation of 'becoming'. Cirenaica's models simply 'are'.

Manuscrito en una botella

Arturo Montoto, a Cuban artist, presents his first solo exhibition in the United States

Curated by R10 and MoCA-Americas Team

I don’t remember when I first met Montoto, but by the time I began to associate with the art world, he was already well-established. It’s been over 25 years now. I later designed several catalogs for him and got to know him personally. At that time, he often worked with art critic Rufo Caballero, who unfortunately passed away at the peak of his career. Rufo told me that Montoto’s entire discourse was based on deep intellectual convictions and that I should not be swayed by appearances, that beyond his almost absolute mastery of technique, there were deep philosophical reflections layered underneath.

Passion and Instinct: Collecting Art

A resemblance of the Rodriguez Collection

The Rodríguez collection is a blueprint of Cuban art and its diaspora. Within the context of the new MoCA-Americas the collection becomes an invaluable visual source for Diaspora identity. It represents a different approach to art history to try to better understand where we come from to better know where we are heading.
