1 Aug 2021 to 19 Dec 2021 Once Only Event
The Jewish Museum of Australia, in partnership with William Mora Galleries and supported by Heide Museum of Modern Art, is proud to present MIRKA – an intimate, previously unseen view into the rich and fascinating life of the late Mirka Mora (1928–2018).
A story of survival and migration, interspersed with a generous dose of family, art, food and love, Mirka Mora’s history is a profoundly affecting post-Holocaust Australian Jewish tale which, until now, has not been presented with such depth and scope.
Showing until 19 December 2021, MIRKA transforms the Museum into an immersive ‘Mirka-world’ reflecting the artist’s trademark mischievousness and bohemian spirit, and sharing her powerful story in vivid detail, through letters, sketchbooks, diaries and recorded interviews.
Featuring never-exhibited works from the private collections of the Mora family and Mirka’s studio and archives, MIRKA offers the most comprehensive picture of the artist’s life and 70-year-long career.
