William Leavitt | Warp Engines, 2009


With an emphasis on recent acquisitions, Room to Live features selected large-scale works or single-artist presentations from MOCA’s renowned Permanent Collection. Organized by Curator Bennett Simpson, the exhibition will include works in painting, sculpture, photography, installation, video, and slide-projection by Fischli & Weiss, Nan Goldin, Samara Golden, Rodney McMillian, Ryan Trecartin, and Marnie Weber, among others. Themes of existential questioning and extravagant subjectivity weave among the individual works, many shown at MOCA for the first time.
