Last week, Michele Oka Doner debuted her “How I Caught a Swallow in Midair” exhibition at the Pérez Art Museum Miami (PAMM), featuring her works from the 1960s through today.
The show highlights the Miami native’s long-spanning career and her artistic development, in which she has explored the influences of the natural world on art. The 71-year-old sculptor focuses on utilizing materials like coral, twigs, and seashells, and incorporating them into her process.
The title of the exhibition is inspired by a cyanotype from 1990 that Oka Doner captured, the image of which could be mistaken for a swooping Swallow. Highlights from the show include ceramic objects made from naturally occurring materials and works on paper.
“How I Caught a Swallow in Midair” coincides with Miami City Ballet’s presentation of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” for which Oka Doner designed the costumes and sets.
The exhibition is on view through September 11.
