MOCA at Goldman Warehouse. From Apr 12th through Jun 28th, 2008.
Featuring works from the permanent collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, Pivot Points, Part 2: New Mythologies will explore the ways contemporary artists create self-mythologies and construct stories with their work. These narratives provide a story line for artists to follow in the conception of new work. The exhibition will take place at MOCA’s satellite gallery, MOCA at Goldman Warehouse located at 404 NW 26th Street in Wynwood Art District.
Some of these stories are confessional while others follow the activities and foibles of real-life or fictional characters. Most civilizations developed myths to explain the unknown – especially the mysteries of life, death and the universe. The artists in Pivot Points, Part 2 draw on mythologies from various times and cultures or from their own imagination to come to terms with the world as they know it.
Pivot Points, Part 2: New Mythologies will include works by artists Matthew Barney, Hernan Bas, Jose Bedia, Louise Bourgeois, William Cordova, Tracey Emin, John Espinosa, Phillip Estlund, Luis Gispert and Jeffrey Reed, Christian Holstad, Isaac Julien, Guillermo Kuitca, Mariko Mori, Adrian Paci, Jorge Pantoja, Raymond Pettibon, Ali Prosch, Matthew Ritchie, Jason Rhoades, Ann-Sofi Sidén, Saul Steinberg, Barthélemy Togo, Kyle Trowbridge, Tunga, and Michael Vasquez.
