Mike Kelley - On View Now at MOCA - MOCAtv

5,596 views 2 weeks ago
MIKE KELLEY is the largest exhibition of the artist's work to date, bringing together over 250 works, from 1974 through early 2012. Widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of our time, Kelley produced a body of deeply innovative work mining American popular culture and both modernist and alternative traditions - which he set in relation to relentless self and social examinations, both dark and delirious. Over his thirty-five year career, Kelley worked in every conceivable medium - drawings and paper, sculpture, performance, photography, painting, music and video - exploring themes from American class relations to post-punk politics. The exhibition, which occupies the entirety of The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and a gallery at MOCA Grand Avenue, is on view through July 28, 2014.

"Drop the Bomb" by Destroy All Monsters courtesy of Compound Annex Records (c) 2003. Produced by Mike Kelley and Cary Loren. Mixed by Scott Benzel and Mike Kelley. Special thanks to the Mike Kelley Foundation for the Arts, Jim Shaw and Cary Loren.

Urs Fischer Play

A series of films made by MOCAtv in conjunction with the exhibition URS FISCHER 04.21.13 - 08.19.13

Spread across MOCA Grand Avenue and The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, the first survey in the United States of the Swiss-born artist Urs Fischer weaves together some of his most memorable and iconic sculptural works while creating an unexpected landscape in both venues. Fischer's world is fluctuating and unpredictable, and the pleasure that we derive from his sculpture and painting is based on our attraction to and simultaneous repulsion by the dreamlike appearances that he constructs. Fischer's work is characterized by an unending diversity of materials, strategies, concepts, and images. Sculptures are created through an elaborate aluminum casting process, roughly hewn in wood, or cast in wax only to melt away during the run of the exhibition. The artist delights in the possibilities of surface, but even works that suggest his handmade touch turn out to have been produced through a range of digital processes in order to create the oddly surreal appearance of reality gone wrong.
