"I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar!" is an exhibit that promises to engage its audience through art created by local women who challenge traditional ideas about femininity.
Curated by Kathryn Mikesell and Ombretta Agrò Andruff, “I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar!” pushes beyond stereotypes about women to highlight the artists' authentic points of view. “On the most simplistic level, this exhibition elevates women’s voices by providing a platform for them to be heard,” Mikesell says. “With the sheer number of women involved, we are celebrating our diversity boldly and proudly.”
According to Mikesell, “I Am Woman, Hear Me Roar!” provides an opportunity to expand the audience for Miami-based artists who happen to be women. It also gives the curators and artists the space they need to respond to the current political environment in a positive and constructive way.
Although all of the artists are women, their diverse work represented a challenge for the curators. “The common thread is that the artists are female, but the works themselves are very different. The biggest challenge was hanging the show in a way that felt cohesive,” Mikesell says. “We have works in every medium: painting, sculpture, photography, embroidery, etc. The diversity in the woman and their work is the strength of this exhibition.”
What This Place Does Not Remember
Project commissioned by Vizcaya Museum and Gardens for their Centennial Exhibition, "Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya"
2016, Nylon, Resin, Ink, Steel Wire, Copper,
Burned Japanese Paper and Welded Steel
24 x 50 feet
Joining the cornucopia of exhibits that are part and parcel of the Art Basel experience, Miami's iconic mansion cum museum Vizcaya showcased site-specific installations from its Contemporary Arts Program (CAP), that will remain on display until October 2017. The sole performance piece: Mira Lehr and her New York collaborator Yara Travieso's "Dido and Aeneas."
Lehr, a doyenne of the Miami art scene for five decades, maintains a vibrant, fresh and ever changing vision. Her nature based imagery often takes shape utilizing resin, gunpowder, fire, Japanese paper, dyes and welded steel. "Dido and Aeneas" is a dramatic marriage of Lehr's rigged rope curtains - with elements of copper, resin and mangrove seeds - moving in concert with a dancer to an aria from Dido and Aeneas, and performed by a soprano and cellist.
"It's an exciting story of Dido and her suicide," Lehr told us. "The aria is about wanting to be remembered for her grandeur not her fate. We equated that with Vizcaya which is always crumbling and being restored."
This year, Lehr was once again featured in the Ink Miami Art Fair and the official Basel artist studio tour. She is represented by New York's Flomenhaft Gallery, and is the subject of a coffee table tome, "Mira Lehr: Arc of Nature."

Mira Lehr's work was chosen to be presented in the 2017 New American Home, designed by Phil Kean Design Group. This cutting-edge contemporary design unites art and architecture. Included are Robert Rauschenberg, Ross Bleckner, and Will Cotton; on view throughout 2017.
The inspiration for Mira Lehr’s and Yara Travieso’s dramatic Baroque performance installation is a forgotten garden at the edge of the museum’s south property and Henry Purcell‘s Dido and Aeneas, an English opera he composed more than 300 years ago. The opera tells the mythological story of Dido, Queen of Carthage, and her love for the Trojan hero Aeneas. In What This Place Does Not Remember, the two contemporary artists personify Vizcaya as the legendary Queen Dido. Lehr’s environmental installation sets the stage for Dido’s Lament, the performance that Travieso directs. An opera singer, a dancer, and a cellist enact the queen’s tragic love story within a lyric web of black rope that evokes the surrounding mangroves.

Please join us for the Opening Reception of
Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya: Phase II
A centennial exhibition featuring commissioned, site-specific installations
Tuesday, November 29, 2016
7:00 - 10:00 pm
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens
3251 South Miami Avenue, Miami, FL 33129
The centennial show aims to revive and reinterpret lost aspects of Vizcaya’s history and ventures into the estate’s gardens and leisure spaces with Phase II.
Performances as part of Mira Lehr & Yara Travieso’s
What This Place Does Not Remember
will take place during the reception at 7:30pm, 8:30pm and 9:30pm. Each performance is approximately 7 minutes long and features Amanda Crider (mezzo-soprano), a cellist and a dancer.
What This Place Does Not Remember is a site specific installation and performance personifying Vizcaya as the mythical Queen Dido from Henry Purcell’s Baroque opera, “Dido and Aeneas”. The physical installation acts as a re-incarnation of the exotic wildlife once present in the southern grounds, as well as, a framing device of a lost and forgotten paradise that once existed there. When the installation is activated via performance, it transforms into a surrealist theatrical set for Queen Dido’s own loss of a promised future. Confronting a failed utopia, What This Place Does Not Remember is propelled by themes of untamed desires for legacy and grandeur amidst great vulnerability.
The second installation of Lost Spaces features works in four areas related to Vizcaya’s gardens and recreational spaces: the Casba, South Property, the Casino and Recreational Rooms. Like Phase I, these projects highlight elements that have been lost to Vizcaya’s present interpretation and focus on the original design intent that no longer exists.
Artists include Duane Brant, Brookhart Jonquil, Amanda Keeley, Juraj Kojs, Mira Lehr and Yara Travieso, Lucinda Linderman, Kerry Phillips, Leyden Rodriguez Casanova, David Rohn, Magnus Sigurdarson, and Frances Trombly. All projects will be on view and select performances by participating artists will take place during the reception.

Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya Ventures into the Estate's Gardens
Vizcaya’s Centennial Exhibition Opens Second Phase on November 29
MIAMI (November 18, 2016) — Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is pleased to announce the opening of the next phase of Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya, a two-part centennial exhibition celebrating the estate’s history through contemporary art. Phase II will venture into the estate’s gardens and leisure spaces. The opening reception for this exciting, archive-driven exhibition takes place on Tuesday, November 29, at 7:00 p.m. and is one of many events honoring the estate’s 100th birthday.
Much like Vizcaya founder James Deering, who incorporated commissioned contemporary artworks in his vision for the estate, Vizcaya Curator Gina Wouters envisioned this contemporary exhibit as a vehicle to revive forgotten aspects of Vizcaya’s history.
"Following the tradition of James Deering’s patronage, we’ve commissioned local artists who have a unique perspective on Vizcaya’s place in Miami’s cultural landscape to bring back lost elements of the estate’s original design," says Gina Wouters, Curator of Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. “Through the Lost Spaces project we truly integrate our Contemporary Arts Program within the aesthetic and interpretive framework of the historic site.”
This second installation of Lost Spaces features local artists creating works in four areas related to Vizcaya’s gardens and leisure spaces: the Casba, South Property, the Casino, and Basement Recreational Rooms. Like Phase I, these projects highlight elements of Vizcaya that no longer exist or are inaccessible to the public.
The Casba is a small, exotic pavilion that was originally part of Vizcaya’s southern gardens and is now on the grounds of the Archdiocese of Miami. Leyden Rodriguez Casanova’s piece will create an architectural reference to the Casba that appears as either unfinished or deconstructed, depending on the viewer’s perspective. Mira Lehr and Yara Travieso’s installation will personify Vizcaya as Queen Dido, the first queen of Carthage according to ancient Greek and Roman writers. Their work will be activated through performances, and evoke the exotic wildlife that once existed on the South Property. Kerry Phillips will create an installation for the winding white marble staircase in the Shop and Café area that once served as quick access for Deering and his guests from the East Loggia to the recreational rooms. The project will consist of found furniture installed with a sense of movement suggesting that the pieces are rushing down the stairs. Brookhart Jonquil is developing a piece for the two rooms in the Casino on the Garden Mound. This piece will focus on the original fixtures in the rooms, while using architecture and light as a bridge between the physical and immaterial. His work will also speculatively reference the daily activities that might have taken place in those spaces.
The Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya exhibit has been extended and will remain on view through October 9, 2017. Included in the exhibition is the earlier phase that opened in May 2016 and features works inside Vizcaya’s Main House and Moat by artists Juraj Kojs, Duane Brant, Lucinda Linderman, David Rohn, Frances Trombly, Amanda Keeley and Magnus Sigurdarson. For more information, please visit www.vizcaya.org or call 305-250-9188.
The "Earth SOS" traveling exhibition will begin at Flomenhaft Gallery with an exhibit of 10 artists’ works from September 8 - October 22, 2016
The goal of this exhibit is to portray art that awakens the public. The works will be by artists that are passionate about the decay of our environment and the future for our selves and generations yet unborn. Highlighting this important topic will make an effort to help save us all from an ecological apocalypse.

The artist's latest venture is the Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya commission for 2016. Part performance, part installation, referring to a baroque opera happening within the mangroves. Mira Lehr and Yara Travieso’s installation will personify Vizcaya as Queen Dido, the first queen of Carthage according to ancient Greek and Roman writers. Their work will be activated through performances, and evoke the exotic wildlife that once existed on the South Property.
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is pleased to present Lost Spaces and Stories of Vizcaya, a two-part exhibition on view from May 2016 through October 2017, in conjunction with Vizcaya’s centennial.
The inspiration for the exhibition is closely tied to Vizcaya’s history, as the property has traditionally been home to commissioned work by contemporary artists. While we know much about the estate’s history, many of Vizcaya’s compelling spaces and stories have disappeared. Lost Spaces will showcase installations in and around the Main House and gardens that aim to bring these lost spaces and stories “back to life.”
AN EXHIBITION IN TWO PHASES
Phase I of Lost Spaces is on view through October 2017 and features projects that relate to Vizcaya’s Moat, Map Racks, Staff Life and Lost Decorated Rooms. Phase II, on view from November 2016 through October 2017, will focus on four recreational spaces and highlight elements of Vizcaya’s original design intent that no longer exist. These include the Casba, South Property, the Casino and Basement Recreational Rooms. The Casba is a small, exotic pavilion that was originally part of Vizcaya’s southern gardens and is now on the grounds of the Archdiocese of Miami.

Open everyday from 9:30am until 4:30pm
Mira Lehr’s work is a meditation on the natural world—more on what things do, than how they look.
Her connection with South Florida’s unique landscape and its complex relationship to both human and natural forces has been a constant influence on her work. Lehr brings the fragile qualities of nature to the fore through her use of materials. Gunpowder-burned trails as roots and blooming organic forms are juxtaposed in her visual narratives.
The creation of art within Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden offers a synergy where nature and art are intertwined. It captures the imagination of the human spirit, and ideally, we see our existence linked with nature. Lehr hopes to take the viewer into an exploratory journey capturing the spirit of the vulnerable enigma that lives amongst us.
Second Nature is influenced by the concepts of creation and destruction, the hard edge versus the soft focus, the yin and the yang, as well as the harmonious and the enigmatic.

The exhibition Arc of Nature continues at the Flomenhaft Gallery until June 27th. For more information visit http://www.flomenhaftgallery.com .
Mira Lehr: Arc of Nature
As a young female artist in the '50s and '60s, Lehr was at the forefront of abstract expressionism and the New York School having studied with the Billmyers, Hans Hoffmann and Motherwell. Lehr was born in Brooklyn and studied art, art history and philosophy at Vassar College. She later became a force in the mobilization of women artists in cities like Miami, where she co-founded the Continuum Gallery. Lehr was chosen as an original participant with Buckminster Fuller on the first World Game Scenario Project at the New York Studio School.
Mira Lehr: Arc of Nature presents Lehr's work and career as an artist continuing over five decades. The artist's expression of nature through various media is explored by Eleanor Heartney, arts and cultural critic. Heartney analyzes Lehr's work, her background and the process involved in her artistry as well as her drive as a woman artist. The book also features a 2014 interview conducted by Irving Sandler, art historian, writer and critic at Lehr's home in Miami Beach and a Foreword by Thom Collins, Director of the Miami Art Museum. Lehr's own writing and reflections throughout the book reveal her metaphysical nature. Mira Lehr, Nature in Art, a beautiful large format art book features over 100 images of Lehr's art - compelling paintings, sculpture and video in brilliant color.
"Windows", a large-scale painting, was included at the American Embassy in Mexico City and is now going to be included in the permanent collection at the American Embassy in Washington D.C.

Pull of Tide
Kelley Roy Gallery: October - November 2013
The most eye-catching piece in an exhibit filled with quite a few of them, Mira Lehr’s “The Pull of the Tide” at Kelley Roy Gallery, is a huge tapestry covering one wall. As the title refers to, all these new works from the long-established artist relate to the tides, the organisms of the ocean, and our precarious relationship waters as they continue to rise and threaten all waterfronts across the globe.
This particular work, called “Diel Migration,” is made partially from jute hemp, which is used to cover land to keep it from eroding; it looks like very heavy netting. Woven into this is shiny copper, manipulated red Japanese paper that look like sea “flowers” or coral, and bright-colored resin splotches. The total effect resembles that bed of seaweed you stumble upon while walking the beach, which has caught debris from the sea in its web — maybe formerly alive creatures and stuff discarded from a ship. Or maybe a view of plankton rising to the surface — diel are a form of plankton.
Across the room is another stunning piece, this time with subdued coloring, which includes white light bulbs, rust-colored Japanese paper, and video of waves crashing up side down. The paper-covered wood panel is curved to resemble a wave, and hanging within its “frame” are variously sized light bulbs that are used to grow coral. They are off, while tiny bulbs provide the actual lighting. The shadows are remarkable.
In fact shadows play a big part in many of the pieces here, especially the series of colored resin and Japanese-paper works that look like jelly fish; as the light pours through the clear parts of the pieces, it casts shadows of the images against the wall. Jelly fish, by the way, as Lehr points out, have the ability to regenerate and are being studied by scientists for that property. As the oceans encroach on our man-made environment, as we depopulate the seas by over-fishing, here, she suggests by these works, is a ray of hope.
The two major sculptures reference the impact of tides and winds. “Coriolis” is the title of one, which is the term for the effect of winds on weather patterns, especially hurricanes and typhoons. It’s a beautiful work, with two large, gray oval opposing resin pieces tied together with steel mesh on which hang small, colorful bits that resemble flowers being tossed and turned in the wind. The other, “Tidal Equation,” includes a half moon and more swirling motion.It would be a shame to miss out on an exhibit so relevant to our South Florida world.

The October 2012 issue of Sculpture Magazine has published a review of Mira Lehr’s sculpture Indefinite Integral
Author Kelly Grovier writes about Modernism at the Art institute of Chicago and references contemporary painter Mira Lehr.
"This is a book teeming with connections, where the seven luminous O'Keeffe paintings include here (representing her development throughout the 1920's) profit from their proximity to the diaphanous power of the Harlem Renaissance artist Aaron Douglas's gouache and graphite "Study for 'Aspects of Negro Life: The Negro in an African Setting'" (1934). Taken together, O'Keeffe's apotheosis of the petal and Douglas's layering of angled light (what he calls "visual emanations") clear a space in which their spiritual heir, the contemporary New York artist Mira Lehr, can construct radiant works such as "Tequila Sunrise I" and "Apparition" (both 2007). Through the story of American modernism is in many ways the resistance by members of one movement to the emphases and ideologies of another - Regionalism vs Surrealism, Realism vs Expressionism - the thrust of the catalogue is one of a surprisingly coherent genealogy of spirit from which the reader can better appreciate how Arshile Gorky's smears make way for Cy Twombly's scribbles and how the cerebral geometry of Robert Motherwell primes us for the materialities of Sean Scully"
