With the commercial art world headed to Art Basel Miami Beach and its satellite fairs this week, the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami is showing off Weeping Moon, a Mark Handforth sculpture installed on the museum’s building.
Handforth was my guest on Episode No. 11 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast on the occasion of his MOCA North Miami survey exhibition, “Mark Handforth: Rolling Stop.” His work has been exhibited all over the world, including at the MCA Chicago and before that at the Hirshhorn, the Whitney, the Dallas Museum of Art, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Hammer, in New York’s Central Park and in France, Norway, Ireland and Switzerland. A Brit who came to the United States and immediately found himself awed by our urban and freeway infrastructures, his work is big, often funny, and is thoroughly informed by an outsider’s experience of America.
