Alumnus Sebastian Munoz explores environmental transformation in MDC MOAD exhibit


At the MDC Museum of Art + Design (MOAD), Sebastian Muñoz (FIU BFA ’13) is currently exhibiting Distrtito Doce (District 12), a showing of new photographic works that documents Miami Dade County’s District 12 region.

The exhibition includes two series, Sand, Gravel, & Stone and Structures: Study of Industrial Bodies, which focus on the cyclic essence of transformation, and explore the continuum of materiality. In Sand, Gravel and Stone the industrial landscape is depicted in a form of meditative de-contextualization. In Structures: Study of Industrial Bodies, the pieces examine provocative fragments subtracted from their overwhelming habitat.

Distrtito Doce is part of a special series at MDC MOAD called swing/SPACE/miami, which features the work of distinguished MDC and New World School of the Arts alumni. The ongoing exhibition presents five solo or group exhibitions per year, providing a platform to re-engage former alumni and foster opportunities with the community of young and emerging artists throughout South Florida.
