What is your name and title/occupation?
Claire Breukel, Curator for Dacra and the Craig Robins Collection

What are you working on right now (or how has your work changed over the last few months)?
I joined Dacra in May and have been working on a series of exhibitions and projects in the Miami Design District focused on supporting Miami’s creative community. The pandemic encouraged us to connect physical exhibitions with online content more effectively, and facilitate intimate art experiences. Although it can feel discouraging at times, it is uplifting to be able to work on ambitious projects and share creativity with audiences who are separated but together.

Do you have a MOCA memory that you want to share?
I loved the Cecilia Vicuña exhibition, especially her video works which I hadn’t seen before. Sitting in the dark video room I remember giggling at her playful humorous constructions thinking I was alone (there may have been a snort), but then realized two people were standing behind me…
