MIKE KELLEY

Widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of our time, Mike Kelley (1954–2012) produced a body of deeply innovative work mining American popular culture and both modernist and alternative traditions—which he set in relation to relentless self and social examinations, both dark and delirious.




Born in Detroit, Michigan, Kelley lived and worked in Los Angeles from the mid-1970s until his death at the age of fifty-seven. Over his thirty-five year career, he worked in every conceivable medium—drawings on paper, sculpture, performance, music, video, photography, and painting—exploring themes as diverse as American class relations, sexuality, repressed memory, systems of religion and transcendence, and post-punk politics, to which he brought both incisive critique and abundant, self-deprecating humor.

JACOB HASHIMOTO :: GAS GIANT



Jacob Hashimoto’s third and final edition of Gas Giant, a massive space-altering installation made with thousands of thin paper sheets.







Jacob Hashimoto (b. 1973, Greeley, Colorado), is an artist whose work studies visual experience in space, artifice, and craft through the use of materials such as handmade kites, fiberglass, marble and the skillful use of light. Combining traditional kite-making techniques and painting into sculptural environments, Hashimoto creates massive space-altering installations with thousands of thin paper sheets. For MOCA Pacific Design Center, Hashimoto is producing the third and final edition of Gas Giant. The work was previously presented in Venice, Italy in 2013 Fondazione Querini Stampalia by Studio la Citta and in Chicago in 2012 at Rhona Hoffman Gallery. This exhibition will be the first L.A. presentation of Gas Giant and will mark Hashimoto's first solo museum exhibition in California. Jacob Hashimoto's Gas Giant is organized by MOCA Senior Curator Alma Ruiz and Curatorial Assistant Selene Preciado.
