museum of contemporary art, north miami black gold exhibitionAt Fort Lauderdale-based PR firm Durée & Company, we love immersing ourselves in the art and culture of South Florida. One of our favorite museums, The Museum of Contemporary Art, North Miami, or MOCA, showcases some of the most unique and intriguing exhibitions around. Each season, we learn something new about a contemporary artist, body of work, or just a social issue that comes to life through creative expression.  With fall just around the corner, MOCA’s latest exhibition is already underway.

From September 15 through November 13, MOCA will showcase Rolando Peña: Black Gold. In this exhibition, Peña explores the oil paradox and how entangled oil products are in our everyday lives. It’s pretty amazing when you think about it! The exhibition is “participatory art” and interacts with viewers through dance, cinema, video, photography, installation, architecture and design. What can viewers expect to see? For starters, one work of art features a whole room outfitted with reflective mirrors. Asymmetrical golden barrels, suspended in the air, will intersect laser beams that traverse from a number of directions. Intrigued? MOCA’s dynamic building façade will also play a role in this exhibition, where an installation of seven oil barrels will flank the building’s reflective pool, a visible statement seen from passing traffic and beyond.

What’s an exhibition without a party? All are welcome to join the fun and see this thought-provoking exhibition at the opening reception on Thursday, September 22 from 7-9 p.m. The cost is $10 for the general public, but free for MOCA members.

We hope to see you there!
