All My Sons by Arthur Miller

Jan 17, 2020 to Jan 19, 2020 - at 12:00 PM - English

Academy Award-winner Sally Field (Steel Magnolias, Brothers & Sisters) and Bill Pullman (The Sinner, Independence Day) star in Arthur Miller's blistering drama All My Sons, captured live from The Old Vic in London.

America, 1947. Despite hard choices and even harder knocks, Joe and Kate Keller are a success story. They have built a home, raised two sons and established a thriving business. But nothing lasts forever and their contented lives, already shadowed by the loss of their eldest boy to war, are about to shatter. With the return of a figure from the past, long buried truths are forced to the surface and the price of their American dream is laid bare.

Jeremy Herrin (NT Live: This House, People, Places & Things) directs a cast that also includes Jenna Coleman (Victoria), and Colin Morgan (Merlin).

MOCA Moving Images: PARACAS

Wednesday, Jan 22, 2020 from 7:00 PM to 9:00 PM - English

The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami (MOCA) is pleased to present a screening of Cecilia Vicuna's 1983 film, PARACAS, on Wednesday, Jan. 22, 2020. The screening will be followed by a presentation by Dr. Constantino Manuel Torres on anthropology, shamanism, and the pre-Colombian Paracas culture of the Atacama Desert.

In the film PARACAS, Vicuna animates a 2000-year-old pre-Columbian textile created in the Paracas/Nazca region of Peru. Figures from the ancient textile come to life to perform an imagined ancient ritual in a miniature world created by the artist, set in the poetic universe of a desert transformed into a garden by its ancient inhabitants. Original music was composed and performed specifically for this work by Jose Perez de Arce and Claudio Mercado, with chants by Vicuna. The original Paracas textile is in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum.

Dr. Constantino Manuel Torres, Professor Emeritus, Art and Art History Department at Florida International University, Miami, has conducted research on the connection between iconography and visionary plant use in ancient cultures of the South Central Andes since 1982. He co-authored "Anadenanthera: Visionary Plant of Ancient South America" (2006), a 4,000-year history of the use of this sacred plant, which led to the study of ayahuasca analogues in South American antiquity. He has been the recipient of four Fulbright Fellowships.

It is comprised of Vicuña’s multidisciplinary work in performance, sculpture, drawing, video, text, and site-specific installations created over 40 years. Vicuña was recently recognized as a finalist of the 13th Hugo Boss Prize, which celebrates the work of remarkable artists whose practices are among the most innovative and influential of our time. The exhibition is co-curated by Andrea Andersson, The Helis Foundation Chief Curator of Visual Arts at the CAC, and Julia Bryan-Wilson, Associate Professor, University of California, Berkeley.

“Cecilia Vicuna: About to Happen” and Alice Rahon’s “Poetic Invocations” are on view at MOCA through March 29, 2020.
