Opening Reception for Rita Ackermann at MOCA

Opening Reception for Rita Ackermann at MOCAThursday, March 15, 7pm – Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), 770 NE 125th Street, North Miami

This survey exhibition of Rita Ackermann, organized by the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, and curated by MOCA Executive Director Bonnie Clearwater, examines the artist’s paintings throughout her career and the changes in her work that occurred through her immersion into Western culture. After moving to New York from her native Hungary in the early 1990s, Rita Ackermann first attracted attention for her drawings depicting young female figures representing the total freedom of living outside the rules and constraints of society. One of the few contemporary artists to discuss her work in terms of “style” rather than practice, Ackermann has forged a new visual language in painting, drawing and collages, which ranges from psychologically intense expressionism to colorfield abstraction. The exhibition will be on view through May 6. Opening reception is free for MOCA members and $10 for non-members. Enjoy a special performance by Gang Gang Dance at 9 p.m.
