MOCA Presents Ryan Trecartin’s Any Ever
Ryan Trecartin’s Any Ever (2009-2010) opened at the Museum of Contemporary Art in North Miami. Attendees viewed his 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 is the first time the work is 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 are transformed into spaces that are quasi-recognizable as particular public and private settings, anchored by key seating elements.
The presentation of Any Ever at MOCA is organized by MOCA associate curator Ruba Katrib.
Following the opening reception, MOCA hosted an after party at The Standard on Miami Beach that featured a conceptual performance by artists Raul de Nieves and Colin Self. Guests enjoyed cocktails coutesy of GREY GOOSE Vodka at both the reception and the after party.
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.
