Traveling to the Pérez Art Museum in Miami (April 21–September 24, 2017) from the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (September 25, 2016–March 19, 2017), Toba Khedoori was the artist's first museum survey exhibition in fifteen years.

Organized by Franklin Sirmans, former LACMA curator and head of contemporary art prior to his appointment as Director of the Pérez Art Museum, the exhibition surveyed over 20 years of Khedoori's work. Included were large-scale early works on paper, as well as oil paintings on canvas that the artist has been creating in recent years. For Sirmans, Khedoori's "attention to detail, her surrealist wit, and her appreciation for the magic of the everyday remind us to take stock of what surrounds us."
