Collecting History: Highlighting Recent Acquisitions is inspired by the extensive growth of the Los Angeles MOCA's holdings, through gifts and purchases over the past decade. While some of the works on view have been featured in MOCA exhibitions, many others are being shown for the first time. This show features significant works by historical, mid-career, and emerging artists including Edaurdo Abaroa, John Altoon, Lisa Lapinski, Gary Simmons, Rachel Harrison, William Wegman, Ai Weiwei, Suzanne Lacy, Hans Haacke, Jutta Koether and Tony Conrad among many others. Collecting History is running through October 19, 2009 at the MOCA Grand location in Downtown Los Angeles. You can't miss the Walt Disney Music Hall across the street!
Another treat at this MOCA location (there are 3 total) is there stellar book shop. I once witnessed Todd Oldham perusing the shelves silently getting inspiration.
