Purchase Not By Moonlight at the Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami, MOCA, is Anri Sala’s first major museum exhibition in the US. The show features seven films from the late 1990s to the present including a new film, Answer Me, along with photographs and sculptures. The installation explores a dialogue about the interplay of the works with space and time.
