The Painting Factory: Abstraction after Warhol explores the recent transformation of abstract painting into one of the most dynamic platforms in contemporary art.

Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974
Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974
May 27, 2012-Sep 3, 2012

Ends of the Earth: Land Art to 1974 is the first large-scale, historical-thematic exhibition to deal broadly with Land art, capturing the simultaneous impulse emergent in the 1960s to use the earth as an artistic medium and to locate works in remote sites far from familiar art contexts. Organized by MOCA Senior Curator Philipp Kaiser and co-curator Miwon Kwon, Professor of Art History at UCLA, the exhibition will highlight the early years of untested artistic experimentations and conclude in the mid-1970s before Land art becomes a fully institutionalized category.

The exhibition reinterprets the film's legends, the people involved, its place in Hollywood, film as a medium, and behind-the-scenes footage, in a new, fresh, and unconventional presentation of film, video installation, photography, painting, drawing, and sculpture, housed in and framed by iconic, Hollywood structures.
