“Tracing the Red Thread” by Mira Lehr at MOCA

“Tracing the Red Thread” by Mira Lehr at MOCAThursday, September 13, 7pm-9pm – Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) North Miami, 770 NE 125th Street, North Miami

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. @mocanomi
