The Museum of Art and Design (MOAD) at Miami Dade College (MDC) presents Estuary [Pavilion for MOAD], a work by Cuban American artist Rafael Domenech, opening Wednesday, March 1, at MDC Kendall Campus. The site-specific public artwork will remain on view through May 22 at the campus’ Fred Shaw Plaza. Free and open to the public.

Estuary [Pavilion for MOAD] is the second iteration of MOAD Projects, a series of exhibitions that feature work by Miami-based artists, including distinguished MDC and New World School of the Arts alumni and faculty. The project is curated by Isabela Villanueva.

Commissioned by MOAD, Rafael Domenech:  Estuary [Pavilion for MOAD] functions on multiple levels—as a public sculpture, a reflection on the written word, a platform for live performances and public gatherings, and a meditative environment. It is made from everyday construction materials, such as aluminum framing, and can mutate into a variety of distinct spatial configurations. Large panels or “pages” of construction mesh feature laser-cut texts that will change throughout the duration of the project.

Domenech earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the New World School of the Arts. His artistic practice investigates notions of architecture and urban design, public gathering spaces, and publishing methodologies.
