New exhibitions open at Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson
Na Mira: Subrosa is organized by Alexis Wilkinson, Assistant Curator.

TUCSON, AZ.- While hissing is an exhibition by artist, performer, and Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Raven Chacon that celebrates sound as a medium for resistance and connection. The installation features a collection of graphic scores dedicated to contemporary Indigenous women working in the field of new music, and a three-channel video installation that resounds with voice and instrument. Chacon amplifies Indigenous women’s voices, centering their leadership and vision both as carriers of memory and authors of culture.

Na Mira: Subrosa
MARCH 24 - OCTOBER 22, 2023

Subrosa expands on a cumulative body of work by artist Na Mira that imagines scenes from White Dust From Mongolia, an unfinished film by the late artist and author Theresa Hak Kyung Cha. Mira works with intuitive and experimental processes to create an immersive installation featuring nonlinear films, radio transmissions, and the color red. Informed by her own autobiography, Mira engages Cha’s archive to attend to collective experiences of diaspora.

Raven Chacon is a composer, performer and installation artist from Fort Defiance, Navajo Nation. As a solo artist, Chacon has exhibited, performed, or had works performed at LACMA, The Renaissance Society, San Francisco Electronic Music Festival, REDCAT, Vancouver Art Gallery, Haus der Kulturen der Welt, Borealis Festival, SITE Santa Fe, Chaco Canyon, Ende Tymes Festival, and The Kennedy Center. As a member of Postcommodity from 2009-2018, he co-created artworks presented at the Whitney Biennial, documenta 14, Carnegie International 57, as well as the 2-mile long land art installation Repellent Fence. His solo artworks are in the collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum and National Museum of the American Indian, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Getty Research Institute, the University of New Mexico Art Museum, and various private collections.

Na Mira lives and works in Los Angeles. Recent exhibitions, screenings and performances have been presented at Whitney Biennial 2022, Whitney Museum of American Art, The Kitchen, and Participant Inc., New York; Midway Contemporary Art, Minneapolis; Seoul Museum of Art; and Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, amongst others. Upcoming presentations include Art Sonje Center, Seoul and Institute of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
