Founded in 1979, MOCA collects, exhibits, and interprets art created since 1940 in all media, and is dedicated to preserving it for future generations. The Museum is housed in three locations, MOCA Grand Avenue, The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA and MOCA Pacific Design Center.
Funding will be used to support a major retrospective of the work of Zoe Leonard, Zoe Leonard: Survey, which will include approximately 150 works of photography, sculpture, and installations. Leonard and her work are at the forefront of conversations around contemporary photography, the politics of representation and documentation, the trauma and impact of AIDS, and feminist and queer identity. The exhibition, at the Geffen, is scheduled for November 4, 2018 through March 25, 2019.
