ADVERTISING FOR PEOPLE WHO DON'T LIKE ADVERTISING CONFERENCE SERIES & EXHIBIT
2pm

AFPWDLA was born as a creative handbook and partly an attempt to make our world a very slightly more interesting place. And now we are proud to announce it has become a conference series and exhibit in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

For 3 inspiring days we’ll be in the company of some illuminating people, discussing how we can help culture, commerce and content get along and create communications that connects with people in a truthful, meaningful way.

Seats are limited, so please rsvp, and come say hello between panels.

The Herbert and Dorothy Vogel Collection: Fifty Works for Fifty States at MOCA
Feb 10, 2013-Mar 11, 2013

In 2005 Herb and Dorothy Vogel made an extraordinary gift of artwork to the country by donating fifty works from their collection to fifty individual institutions across the United States. The Museum of Contemporary Art was chosen as the receiving institution in California and became part of the historic Fifty Works for Fifty States project, which includes significant works by Carl Andre, Lynda Benglis, Dan Graham, Joan Jonas, Edda Renouf, and Richard Tuttle, among others. MOCA will showcase a selection of this gift in its Grand Avenue building as a testament to the commitment of two contemporary art collectors and their wish to share their collection with the public.
