MAM welcomes the international art world to Miami with a high-energy evening dancing and cocktails under the stars:

American People, Black Light: Faith Ringgold’s Paintings of the 1960s represents an unprecedented artistic exploration of the intersections of race, gender and class, made in direct response to the social upheavals of the 1960s. Widely known for African American story quilts and children’s books, Ringgold’s pointed political paintings disappeared from view for more than 40 years. On the occasion of Ringgold’s 80th birthday, MAM presents the first comprehensive survey of Ringgold’s influential paintings of the 1960s. Also on view, Enrique Martínez Celaya: Schneebett, Focus Gallery: Marcel Duchamp, and works from MAM’s permanent collection.

Rashaad Newsome (performance at 9:30pm): Famed artist Rashaad Newsome presents Hair Affair & Five,a new performance in collaboration with Miami dancers, opera singers and hip hop artists.

Primary Flight: Mural installation organized by Miami street art collective Primary Flight
DJ King Britt

The Rashaad Newsome performance is curated by Claire Breukel and commissioned by Miami Downtown Development Authority (DDA).
