How Michele Oka Doner “…Caught a Swallow in Midair” at PAMM

No contributor

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.
