MOCRA follows the guidance of Saint Louis University concerning the wearing of masks and other COVID-19 measures.
Tom Kiefer: Pertenencias / Belongings
Tom Kiefer’s photographs document objects confiscated from migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border. As testaments to overlooked stories of hope, faith, devotion and survival, these objects challenge us to examine our assumptions about what—and whom—we consider “sacred.” Opens Sept. 3
Objects I Love: Odes + Photos
Identity is created out of the materials of everyday life. This partnership between Saint Louis University and YourWordsSTL in Spring 2021 invited students from Saint Margaret of Scotland School and Loyola Academy to write poems about objects they love in order to explore connections between physical objects, their own developing identities, and the worlds of other students in St. Louis. On display at both MOCRA and the Saint Louis University Museum of Art. Opens Sept. 3.
Featured Work: Michael Tracy, The Romero Cross
We are proud to present the debut showing at MOCRA of Cruz to Bishop Oscar Romero, Martyr of El Salvador, by Michael Tracy. This major work is dedicated to the Archbishop of El Salvador who was assassinated in 1980 (and is soon to be canonized a saint in the Roman Catholic Church). The Romero Cross has been seen worldwide in prominent venues including the 1982 Venice Biennale, and became part of MOCRA’s permanent collection in 2016. It is now on display after a major conservation and cleaning project that lasted more than half a year.
