Cinema Vezzoli
Apr 27, 2014-Aug 11, 2014

MOCA presents Cinema Vezzoli, an exhibition that highlights artist Francesco Vezzoli's mastery in deconstructing the vocabulary of film-making and in analyzing how the celebrity-driven culture influences art and the public imagination. The Milan-based artist debuts a new series of works inspired by the history of Hollywood cinema and the representation of the female persona in art and the mass media. The exhibition is the final component of a three-part series presented at different international museums.

MIKE KELLEY
MIKE KELLEY
Mar 31, 2014-Jul 28, 2014

MIKE KELLEY is the largest exhibition of the artist's work to-date and the first comprehensive survey since 1993. Widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of our time, Mike Kelley (1954-2012) created a protean body of deeply innovative work, which mined American popular culture, modernism and alternative traditions alike for purposes of a relentless, dark and delirious examination of self and society. This extensive overview brings together over 200 works from the mid-1970s until 2012 at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA.

Combining traditional kite-making techniques and painting into sculptural environments, Hashimoto creates massive space-altering installations with thousands of thin paper sheets. For MOCA Pacific Design Center, Hashimoto is producing the third and final edition of Gas Giant
