Alice Rahon: Poetic Invocations
Nov 26, 2019 to Mar 29, 2020.
The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) presents a new exhibition featuring works of French-Mexican surrealist painter Alice Rahon (1904–1987). The “Poetic Invocations” exhibition aims to contribute to the scholarship and recognition of under-explored women artists, and to the intercultural influences on European artists in exile in the Americas, whose work was often deeply marked by indigenous and archaic cultures.
