Located in Pomona, the American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA) is one of the few museums in the country dedicated solely to ceramic art and the only one of its kind on the West Coast.
Grants funding will be used to support the exhibition Plunder Me, Baby, the first West coast exhibition by U.S.-based Peruvian artist Kukuli Velarde. The show will be part of a series of thematically linked exhibitions through Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA. This initiative, which is being led by the Getty, is a far-reaching and ambitious exploration of Latin American and Latino art in dialogue with Los Angeles. AMOCA’s exhibition is slated to run from September 16, 2017 through January 28, 2018.
