MIRKA at the Jewish Museum of Australia

Currently the Museum is showing the exhibition MIRKA until 19 December 2021.

Following the life of Mirka Mora, Noè from the Museum explains that the exhibition is "about Mirka taking you through her art.... And all of us in Melbourne know so much about her artwork from the clothes that we've worn to the pier in St Kilda to Flinders Street Station, to Readings in Acland Street. There's so much of Mirka all around us.

"But what we also learn... here is the stories behind the artwork, the woman herself and her narrative. The fact that she was a Holocaust survivor. The fact that she was a strong woman. The fact that she was an artist, a family woman, a mother, a mentor and a teacher. And that's the kind of story we try to give here."
