Do you like modern art? Do you like to keep abreast of work created by emerging and established contemporary artists from around the country and the world? Would you like to view these works in a space designed just for these cutting edge works of art? If the answer to any of these questions is “yes” then you might really enjoy a trip to the Contemporary Museum of Art Cleveland. (MOCA)
Newly re-opened in a stunning building located at 11400 Euclid Avenue, just north of University Circle, and designed in the United States by Farshid Moussavi Architecture, you will be thrilled by the space in which the progressive works are displayed. MOCA first opened its doors in 1968, but the new location and museum put it in close proximity to the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Art.
Two new exhibitions open November 1, 2013 and run through February 16, 2014. Michelle Grabner I Work From Home features work created from 1993 to the present and includes paintings, prints, videos and sculpture. Grabner was born in Wisconsin in 1962 and lives and works in Oak Lawn, Illinois, and will co-curate the 2014 Whitney Biennial.
Simon Evans was born in London in 1972 but lives and works in New York. His show Only Words Eaten by Experience features assemblages using common materials. Opening receptions for both artists is Friday at 7 PM and will include artist talks, refreshments and music. More information can be obtained by visiting www.mocacleveland.org
