MOAD at MDC will reopen on November 5 with The Body Electric, a major multidisciplinary exhibition that examines humans’ ever-changing relationship with technology and the inescapable interface between our bodies and screens.

Beginning with a pioneering generation of artists active in the 1960s, The Body Electric features remarkably varied works from 59 artists and collectives who use the screen as a place to rethink the body and identity, especially as they relate to questions of gender, sexuality, class, and race.

The Body Electric will be on view from November 5, 2020, to May 30, 2021, and is presented in partnership with the Walker Art Center.

I Remember Miami

During this time of social distancing, the vibrancy of Miami can feel like a distant memory.

I Remember Miami, a new participatory artwork by the great Spanish artist, Dora Garcia, invites the community to reconnect with its city, and one another, in a virtual space like never before.

MOAD presents Forensic Architecture: True to Scale, the first major U.S. survey of Forensic Architecture’s extraordinary work uncovering evidence of state and corporate violence.

Forensic Architecture: True to Scale displays the evidence and explains the methodologies behind over a dozen Forensic Architecture investigations. While providing an overview of how advanced techniques such as photogrammetry, audio analysis, augmented reality, 3D modeling, machine learning, and crowd sourcing support their findings, the exhibition considers the complex relationship between a material fact and its representation in the public realm.

Amidst what Founding Director Eyal Weizman refers to as the “dark epistemology” of a post-truth media environment, this collection of meticulously researched, carefully analyzed, and conscientiously presented evidence demonstrates that it is both possible and imperative to verify what is really happening in the world around us.
