Michael Richards: Are You Down?, curated by Alex Fialho and Melissa Levin, is the first museum retrospective of the work of Michael Richards, an Afro-Caribbean artist whose practice reflects on issues of racial inequity, systemic oppression, and diasporic identity.

Born in Brooklyn in 1963, and raised in Kingston, Jamaica, Richards tragically passed away on 9/11, at the age of 38, while working in his LMCC studio on the 92nd floor of World Trade Center Tower One.

On view April 21 - October 10, 2021 at The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, the retrospective also marks the 20th anniversary of 9/11 with the largest ever exhibition of Richards’ art.

GIRLHOOD by Melissa Febos (Process Space 2015 and 2018 Sarah Verdone Awardee) is a gripping set of stories about the forces that shape girls and the adults they become.

Blending investigative reporting, memoir, and scholarship, Febos charts how she and others like her have reimagined relationships and made room for the anger, grief, power, and pleasure women have long been taught to deny.

Read about GIRLHOOD in Vogue, Oprah Magazine and the New York Times.
