Following a successful debut at Jeffrey Deitch Los Angeles in Spring 2021, “Shattered Glass,” which attracted nearly 1,000 daily visitors in its first weeks, made its way to Miami for an expanded version of the monumental exhibition. Held at the historic Moore Building in the Miami Design District, the art show, co-curated by Antoine “AJ” Girard and Melahn Frierson, featured self-reflective works via paintings, sculptures and photography from international artists of color spanning California to South Africa.

To inaugurate the exhibition’s Miami home, Girard and Frierson invited industry veterans Angelo Baque (Awake NY) and Tremaine Emory (No Vacancy Inn), as well as several artists whose work is currently displayed in the show, including Murjoni Merriweather, Fulton Leroy “Mr. Wash” Washington, Alfonso Gonzales Jr. and Thelonious, for a panel discussion on creating art, the systemic issues with collector culture and why representation matters in institutional spaces.
