I am super excited about the new installations that will be opening up at MOCA, Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art for the 2011 Winter and Spring seasons. I dropped off some work recently to the museum shop and I managed to get a sneak peek at the Blind Landscape exhibit by Teresita Fernández. Her large sculptures and wall installations are breathtakingly beautiful and the stainless steel and graphite were striking in contrast to the stark white walls of MOCA.
There will also be, what no doubt will be a thought-provoking and moving film by Javier Téllez, Letter on the Blind, for the Use of Those Who See. The filmmaker documented the experiences of six blind people as they touched and interacted with an elephant. Imagine the perceptions without the use of sight.
Also on display will be Passive Voices by Lori Ott, with resins and found objects combining.
The opening takes place on Friday, January 28 and is totally free.
