Make and Shop: re-enact The Store, a participatory installation made of enlarged, handmade, everyday retail items, created by Claes Oldenburg in 1962. Start in the galleries with original pieces from Oldenburg's installation, then move to MOCA's roof terrace to build your own enlarged retail objects to sell in our makeshift store. Plan on walking away with another participant's object, purchased with your MOCA money. Participants of all ages and experience levels are welcome.

Jason Schmidt: Some Los Angeles Artists
Jason Schmidt: Some Los Angeles Artists
Nov 17, 2012-Mar 11, 2013

Since 1997, photographer Jason Schmidt has been making intimate portraits of artists around the world as part of his ongoing project Artists. Selected from over 500 photographs that currently make up this series, the 23 images on view represent several generations of artists working in an array of disciplines-painting, sculpture, video, performance, and installation-all of whom are based in Los Angeles. Schmidt photographs each artist in a context that is significant to his or her work, whether the studio, the gallery, or the wider world.

The Panza Collection and Selections from Major Gifts of Beatrice and Philip Gersh, Rita and Taft Schreiber, and Marcia Simon Weisman
Aug 20, 2012-Feb 10, 2013

The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, presents The Panza Collection and Selections from Major Gifts of Beatrice and Philip Gersh, Rita and Taft Schreiber, and Marcia Simon Weisman, now on view through January 14, 2013 at MOCA Grand Avenue. The exhibition celebrates the core of the museum's internationally renowned collection, which evolved as a result of the acquisition of The Panza Collection in 1984, considered at the time as one of the world's most important acquisitions of contemporary art and a turning point in the museum's early history. This exhibition also marks the first time since 2000 that almost the entire Panza Collection has been presented at MOCA. Installed by MOCA Senior Curator Alma Ruiz, The Panza Collection and Selections from Major Gifts of Beatrice and Philip Gersh, Rita and Taft Schreiber, and Marcia Simon Weisman features 92 works, comprising paintings, sculptures, and works on paper that serve both as evidence of the intellectual and emotional challenge that is involved in collecting and as a testament to exemplary civic patronage and its enduring legacy in the cultural growth of Los Angeles.

Ben Jones: The Video
Nov 3, 2012-Feb 24, 2013

Ben Jones: The Video is the West Coast solo museum debut of the artist's work. The exhibition features new videos and paintings that build upon the artist's previous work using the extracted and abstracted forms of technology and pop symbols of our time to create irreverent, surrealistic, and introspective narratives and environments, often defined by their kaleidoscopic arrays of day-glo colors. With a fluid sense of material, Jones has worked with traditional art media like painting, drawing and sculpture, but also animated music videos, produced zines and costumes, furniture and web art, cartoons and music.
