Curator Tour of “Michael Richards: Are You Down?” with Melissa Levin & Alex Fialho
April 28 - 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
Join the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami for a virtual tour with “Michael Richards: Are You Down?” curators Alex Fialho and Melissa Levin of the first museum retrospective of Michael Richards’ artwork. Fialho and Levin have been collaborating and engaged with Richards’ art and legacy since 2016. They will highlight Richards’ virtuosic sculpture and drawing practice and incisive thinking, as well as the recurring imagery, themes, and materials that Richards engaged throughout his body of work. Though Richards’ art is certainly of its time in the 1990s, it simultaneously speaks poetically and provocatively to our contemporary moment. In particular, Richards’ artistic engagement with anti-Blackness, masculinity, diaspora, spirituality, police brutality, and fallen monuments is especially urgent and pressing today.
