Knowledges, a two day-long event and group show at the Mount Wilson Observatory, will feature the work of more than thirty contemporary Los Angeles artists including Dani Tull, Norman Klein, and Louisa Van Leer.
For Engagement Party Art Talk, MOCA has invited The Public School to present discussions about isolation, monitoring, and habitability against a backdrop of dissolving social institutions, familial structures, employment, and more.
