Ryan Trecartin: Any Ever (Opening Reception)
Thursday, June 23, 2011 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (EDT)
Ryan Trecartin’s Any Ever (2009-2010) is a seven-movie epic video produced in Miami with collaborator Lizzie Fitch and other contributors ranging from friends and artists to professional child actors. The presentation of Any Ever at MOCA will be the first time that the work will be shown in its entirety in Miami, the city that was not only the setting for the movies and inspiration for some of their content, but also a character within the works. For the exhibition, MOCA’s galleries will transform into spaces that are quasi-recognizable as particular public and private settings, anchored by key seating elements.
Any Ever is on view at MOCA, North Miami from June 24 through September 4, with another iteration simultaneously on view at MoMA PS1 in New York from June 19 through September 3, 2011.
After-party performance by artists Raul de Nieves and Colin Self.
The presentation of Any Ever at MOCA is organized by MOCA Associate Curator Ruba Katrib.
