Exhibition opening and explosion event for Cai Guo-Qiang: Sky Ladder
213-621-1794 or membership1@moca.org

Join us for the opening of the first west coast solo museum exhibition of artist Cai Guo-Qiang and experience his site-specific work created for MOCA, Mystery Circle: Explosion Event for The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Mystery Circle, a site-specific work created for MOCA, will contain four stages of special pyrotechnics. At the moment of ignition, 40,000 firework rockets will form a string of crop circles and launch perpendicular to MOCA’s north wall, toward Temple Street, before falling onto the ground. The rockets will create a burned imprint on the museum wall, leaving an outdoor drawing. While Cai’s signature explosion events, Project for Extraterrestrials, have been dedicated to creatures from outer space, his new project at MOCA will be the first time an imaginary alien figure actually appears. The explosion event will occur on the exterior wall of the museum at 7:30pm sharp. Please present your MOCA membership card for priority entry for you and a guest. Non-members are welcome to attend.
