Upcoming Events

“Tracing the Red Thread” at MOCA

Art Show, Gallery, Sculpture, Museum, Jewelry/Gems
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) North Miami will present the exhibition “Tracing the Red Thread,” by distinguished South Florida-based artist Mira Lehr, Sept. 6 – Nov. 4, 2018. The multimedia, museum-wide installation will reflect Lehr’s eco-feminist philosophy, the concept of mankind working with nature rather than dominating over it. Lehr uses the classical myth of Ariadne to explore the beauty, fragility and interconnectedness of the endangered aquatic ecosystem of the South Florida coast. In Lehr’s mesmerizing installation, two and three-dimensional works evoke dense thickets of mangroves, the dangerous beauty of jellyfish and the ethereal luminosity of the coral reef. Lehr creates a mysterious world whose seductive beauty reminds us not only of the gifts that nature gives us, but of the importance of preserving them for the future generations. Comprised of a variety of multimedia works, “Tracing the Red Thread” focuses on climate change and environmental issues as a major factor facing mankind today. The exhibition draws on the lessons Lehr learned six decades ago working with Buckminster Fuller on his “World Game Project.” As Lehr learned in her work with Fuller, the earth must be seen as a unified island within the oceans so one is made aware of the interconnectedness of all life. Admission to MOCA is $5, but free for MOCA members and North Miami residents. An artist reception will take place on Thursday, Sept. 13, with an admission cost of $10 to the general public, free to MOCA members and North Miami residents.

Jazz at MOCA: Nestor Torres

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is celebrating Hispanic Heritage Month with a unique performance by GRAMMY Award-winning Artist Nestor Torres as part of its monthly “Jazz at MOCA” series. National Hispanic Heritage Month is celebrated Sept. 15 – Oct. 15 and recognizes Hispanic and Latin American heritage and culture. As a flautist, Torres has found inspiration in classical, Cuban, rock, and jazz sounds resulting in a rhythmic and mellifluous flute sound that has become a music genre all by itself. In collaboration with the City of North Miami’s Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration, the public is invited to enjoy this special Jazz at MOCA event and the rhythms of Nestor Torres, rain or shine. Guests may also enjoy MOCA’s exhibition “Tracing the Red Thread” by Miami-based artist Mira Lehr by donation. “Tracing the Red Thread” is a multimedia, museum-wide installation reflecting Lehr’s eco-feminist philosophy.
