Time Out says

The Jewish Museum of Australia is hosting the largest ever Mirka Mora retrospective

It’s hard to fully comprehend the impact that artist Mirka Mora had on Melbourne. The French-born artist emigrated to Melbourne in 1951 following the Holocaust, and quickly set about ingraining herself and her playful art within the city’s growing bohemian scene. 

There have been many exhibitions on Mora, but none quite like this. The Jewish Museum of Australia has announced that this December it will host Mirka: the most extensive survey of Mirka Mora ever. The museum will be turned into an “immersive Mirka-world” for the exhibition, which will feature never-before-exhibited works from the Mora family and Mirka’s studio archives. 

Alongside these works, Mirka will tell the artist’s story through her sketchbooks, letters, diaries and audio recordings from the Jewish Holocaust Centre’s archives. Mora and her family evaded the Nazis during World War II by hiding in French forests. The Jewish Museum of Australia planning to depict all the colours of the artist’s life from her Parisien childhood to the founding of Tolarno Galleries in Melbourne. 

Mirka will be launched in early December at the Jewish Museum of Australia, though the exact dates have not been confirmed yet.
