The Miami Art Museum hosts an opening reception for video installation exhibit "Kimsooja: A Needle Woman," featuring Korean artist Kimsooja. Eight synchronized videos projected at large scale depict a bustling area of a major metropolitan center: Cairo, Delhi, Lagos, London, Mexico City, New York, Shanghai and Tokyo. In each projection, a lone figure in neutral gray clothes stands motionless with her back to the camera. With this gesture, the artist attempts to exemplify the struggle to preserve a place for the individual within contemporary society. 6-9 p.m. 6:30 p.m. artist talk. Exhibit through Aug. 26.
