Jean Claude Legagneur: Faces of FreedomThursday, February 9, 7pm-9pm – Museum of Contemporary Art, 770 NE 125th St, North Miami

The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) will celebrate Black History Month with the presentation of Faces of Freedom by Haitian-born artist Jean-Claude Legagneur. Curated by Jorge Luis Gutierrez, Faces of Freedom is a collection of over 60 works of art, including paintings, drawings, videos and tridimensional objects that constitute a part of a room installation.

Central to the exhibition are Legagneur’s oversized portraits. The representation of the face, as related to the idea of freedom from slavery, is linked directly to the identity humans are given by the narratives of their past. These works speak for people who are no longer silenced. The artist reception will be open from 7-9 pm and will provide an opportunity for visitors to meet Legagneur. Faces of Freedom will be open from February 7 to March 5, 2017. Admission is $10 per person. @mocanomi
