The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) celebrated its newest exhibition, “My Name is Maryan,” on Thursday, Dec. 2, 2021 during Miami Art Week. MOCA was packed with art enthusiasts who browsed the exhibition while enjoying live music, cocktails and canapés. Guests had the opportunity to meet and greet with MOCA’s Executive Director Chana Sheldon and “My Name is Maryan” curator Alison M. Gingeras. “My Name is Maryan” is a monographic presentation of four decades of paintings, sculptures, drawings and film by the iconoclastic, ground-breaking Polish-born artist Maryan. Drawing upon new scholarship and a trove of never-before-exhibited works, the exhibition is the first retrospective to holistically examine all periods of Maryan’s life and work. Throughout the museum, Maryan’s extraordinary biography and prolific oeuvre represent a deeply moving monument to the perseverance of the human spirit and power of art to work through traumatic loss. Credited as being among the first artist-eyewitnesses to directly depict their experiences of the Shoah, Maryan’s unique approach to figurative art strove to solidarity across cultures and generations.
