There are weird myths, such as the story of Oedipus and his mum. And then there are extra-weird myths like that yarn about Keith Richards getting his blood changed in Switzerland so he could kick heroin. But perhaps were always drawn to myths precisely because we cant explain them, and in Richardss case, probably wouldnt want to anyway. If you havent had your fill of myth-making, head to the Museum of Contemporary Art at Goldman Warehouse (404 NW 26th St., Miami) to see Pivot Points, Part 2: New Mythologies.
Various pieces from MoCAs permanent collection are on display, exploring self-mythologizing and storytelling through the artistry of Matthew Barney, Hernan Bas, José Bedia, Christian Holstad, and Ann Sofi-Sidén. Admission is free. Learn how to make your life larger-than by calling 305-573-5441 or visiting www.mocanomi.org.
