DESCRIPTION

Based on MOCA's world-renowned permanent collection, The Artist's Museum will showcase the finest contemporary works produced by Los Angeles artists from 1980 to present day. A focused examination of the complexity and importance of West Coast practice over the past 30 years, this special presentation organized for MOCA by Associate Curator Rebecca Morse will intersperse over 300 objects in a wide range of media by more than 100 artists, highlighting regional innovators who have most profoundly influenced the international art community. An exciting component of The Artist's Museum will be the MOCA premiere of Doug Aitken's Electric Earth (1999), the hyperkinetic fable of modern life in the form of an eight-channel video installation. In addition to selections from MOCA's holdings, the exhibition will also be augmented by major Los Angeles collections. On view at both downtown MOCA locations, the Southern California audience will have the distinctive opportunity to study recent artistic movements in the context of their own life experience.

The Artist's Museum is made possible by endowment support from the Sydney Irmas Exhibition Endowment.

The exhibition is generously supported by Mandy and Cliff Einstein.

Major support is provided by The Eli and Edythe Broad Foundation.

Generous additional support is provided by BCBGMAXAZRIAGROUP. In-kind media support is provided by Los Angeles magazine.
