Luckily Jim’s piece was part of the reception hall so it was the only work from “The Artist’s Museum” exhibition that could be photographed. Usually at MOCA they only allow photography in the permanent collection and since this is a site-specific installation once the show is over they are going to remove the piece. I noticed the colorway represented is very similar to the color scheme outside MOCA at the box office.
I can’t wait to go see “The Artist’s Museum” at MOCA this weekend! My sculpture professor Jim Isermann has a site-specific wall piece for the reception hall at the Grand Ave location. You should check it out!

"The Artist’s Museum showcases works by 146 artists who have helped shape the artistic dialogue in Los Angeles since the founding of MOCA over 30 years ago. Based on MOCA’s world-renowned permanent collection, supplemented by key loans from local collectors and artists, this special presentation features over 250 works, including a number of new projects made especially for this occasion. Representing the diversity and uniqueness of the Los Angeles community, the exhibition highlights important works from legendary L.A. artists who remain vital and influential alongside those emerging from renowned local art schools, visionary artists associated with various street cultures and subcultures, and crossover artists connected to performance, music, and film."
