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, 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. The presentation of Any Ever at MOCA is organized by MOCA Associate Curator Ruba Katrib.
Opening reception is Thursday June 23, from 6 – 8pm at The Museum of Contemporary Art. 770 NE 125th Street, North Miami, FL 33161
The After Party is Thursday June 23 starting at 9:30 – 11:30pm at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach, 40 Island Avenue, Miami Beach, FL 33139 (RSVP only)
