7pm

Allan Sekula (1951-2013) was an influential artist, writer, and teacher. His works, including books, photographic sequences, written texts, slide sequences, and sound recordings, are among the most moving and incisive critiques of global capital from the latter half of the twentieth century. In 2001, he turned to digital video as yet another means to make art that critically engages the world. Los Angeles Filmforum at MOCA is proud to present a program of Sekula’s work in video.

Beverages and light refreshments will be available for purchase at Lemonade Café until 10pm

WEST HOLLYWOOD

Bob Mizer & Tom of Finland is the first American museum exhibition devoted to the work of Bob Mizer (1922–1992) and Touko Laaksonen, aka “Tom of Finland” (1920–1991), two of the most recognizable figures of 20th century erotic art and forefathers of an emergent post-war gay culture. Organized by MOCA Curator Bennett Simpson and Guest Co-Curator Richard Hawkins, in collaboration with the artists’ respective Foundations, the exhibition will feature a selection of Laaksonen’s masterful drawings and collages, alongside Mizer’s photographs, photo-collages, and films, as well as his groundbreaking magazine Physique Pictorial—where drawings by “Tom” were first published in 1957.
