Black Gold: Rolando Peña Artist Reception

Black Gold: Rolando Peña Artist ReceptionThursday, September 22, 7pm-9pm – Museum of Contemporary Art, 770 NE 125th Street, North Miami

The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami (MOCA) is launching its Fall season with the presentation of Rolando Peña: Black Gold. In this exhibition, Peña explores oil as a substance that has marked the destiny of of modern and contemporary life. Black Gold is “participatory art” and captures viewers in an immersive experience through dance, cinema, video, photography, installation, architecture and design.

As part of the experience, viewers enter a room with reflective mirrors and asymmetrical golden barrels suspended in the air as a laser beam traverses the space. Surrounding the MOCA pond, an installation of seven barrels refers to both the chemical elements of crude oil and the seven elements of design.

The artist reception will be open from 7-9 pm and will provide an opportunity for visitors to meet and greet Peña and be immersed in a creatively constructed environment.
