MOCA  The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles


Tomorrow at 7pm: ​Art historian Elena Shtromberg will lecture at MOCA Grand. Shtromberg specializes in modern and contemporary Latin American visual culture, with a specific focus on Brazil and the U.S.-Mexico border region. She is the author of Art Systems: Brazil and the 1970s (2016), which maps the varied artistic practices in Brazil during the most repressive years of its military dictatorship. Shtromberg will discuss the work of Anna Maria Maiolino, as well as her own research, in conjunction with the exhibition Anna Maria Maiolino. [Anna Maria Maiolino, É o que Sobra (What is Left Over), from the Fotopoemação (Photopoemaction) series, 1974, digital print, three parts, each 11 1/4 x 15 3/4 inches (28.5 x 40 cm.), photo by Max Nauenberg]

Susan Lipper: “The picture carries a lot of hidden information, but the mystery is enough. I think one should do the imaginative work. I'm actually asking the viewer to own the psyche of the pictures.” [Susan Lipper, Untitled (from the Grapevine series), 1990, silver gelatin print, 16 x 20 in. (40.6 x 50.8 cm)Image: 13 1/2 x 13 1/2 in. (34.29 x 34.29 cm)]

Adrián Villar Rojas: "Yo no tengo ni pretendo tener ningún control sobre la dimensión semiótica de la materia que libero. Todo lo que sucede es efecto de la emancipación total de los agentes, incluso del propio material entendido como agente.” Lee esta entrevista con artista rosarino Adrián Villar Rojas en el periodico Argentino La Nación–Adrián Villar Rojas: El teatro de la desaparición se inaugura en MOCA Geffen el 22 de octubre.

Gabriel Orozco: "For me, it’s important to move, and to leave my work exposed to things I don’t know.” [Gabriel Orozco, Untitled (One Peso Bill), 2001, Pencil and gouache on one peso bill, Frame (White-washed wood): 17 1/2 x 14 1/2 x 1 1/2 in. (44.45 x 36.83 x 3.81 cm)Paper: 2 1/2 x 6 in. (6.35 x 15.24 cm)]

Adrián Villar Rojas: "David is the locus of art in that exhibition; he says, ‘I am art,’ in relation to everything that surrounds him yet he really only generates a background in which the viewer can see art in its absolute artificiality.” Adrián Villar Rojas: The Theater of Disappearance opens October 22 at MOCA Geffen!

Matthew McCaslin: “One of the central themes in my work has been to use these ‘in between’ materials, materials that create a consciousness of space between things, somehow it’s where thought really takes hold, in these in between locations.” [Matthew McCaslin, 48 Hours in a Day, 1991, BX light fixtures, receptacles, switches, extension cords and clocks, 80 x 100 x 12 in. (203.2 x 254 x 30.5 cm)]

Adrián Villar Rojas: “End of art, end of the world and end of language are then one and the same thing: the same radical metaphor, the same metaphorical end.” Adrián Villar Rojas: The Theater of Disappearance opens October 22 at MOCA Geffen!

Tomorrow at 7pm: MOCA presents the world premiere of James Benning’s film READERS at MOCA Grand! For over forty years, James Benning has created a cinema whose grace and clarity is equaled only by the elegance of its structures. His new film, READERS, is no exception. Composed of just four shots in which Clara McHale-Ribot, Rachel Kushner, Richard Hebdige, and Simone Forti read quietly to themselves, the film offers portraits of its subjects while simultaneously serving as a mirror for the viewers, who perform a parallel stillness.

Elaine Mayes: “Most all my photographs in some way are connected to the idea of seeing. Abstract Expressionist painting also influenced me, and the energy of gesture is often part of my work. Conceptual art from the 70s also was important and was incorporated into my thinking on a number of occasions.” [Elaine Mayes, Pegasus, 1972, Gelatin silver print, Image: 8 x 12 in. (20.32 x 30.48 cm) Paper: 11 x 14 in. (27.94 x 35.56 cm)]

Rodney McMillian: “Sometimes humor is a serious business. Great comedians are often speaking profound truths that are not easy to digest. Humor enables me as a viewer to acknowledge the horror, but also to sit with it in a certain way that isn’t debilitating. But that doesn’t at all negate the existence of horror.” [Rodney McMillian, Untitled (flag), 2006-2008, Mixed media, acrylic on unstretched canvas, fabric, and grommets, 107 1/2 x 134 x 14 1/2 in. (273.05 x 340.36 x 36.83 cm)]

Anna Maria Maiolino: “The word is a sign that comes to enhance the discourse of the work.” Anna Maria Maiolino is currently on view at MOCA Grand! #PSTLALA

Carlos Almaraz: “[Los Angeles] is a metropolis, but it's not, hasn't been developed to the extreme that New York has, or Chicago. It still has elements of nature creeping through it, giving us a landscape sometimes very reminiscent of French Impressionism, of those lovely cityscapes or streetscapes of Paris with the horse-drawn carriages… I'm probably very romantic in my thought of this, but I still think Los Angeles presently is a romantic environment.” Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano LA is currently on view at MOCA Pacific Design Center!
