|MOCA’S ENGAGEMENT PARTY PRESENTS NEW ARTWORKS IN THE FORM OF DYNAMIC SOCIAL EVENTS AND PERFORMANCES BY LA–BASED ARTIST COLLECTIVES
Launched in October 2008, Engagement Party offers emerging collectives three-month residencies to create works to be shown at MOCA Grand Avenue on the first Thursday of each month from 7 to 10pm. Collectives may employ any medium, discipline, or strategy, resulting in artworks that may incorporate performances, workshops, screenings, lectures, or any other activity emerging from the group’s particular focus. By providing a platform for artist collectives with multidisciplinary, non-object-based practices, MOCA acknowledges the significant role of these practices in the contemporary cultural landscape while challenging the conventions of the museum as a collecting institution.
An essential component of Engagement Party is its unique oversight committee, Think Tank. Comprising midlevel staff drawn from a broad spectrum of museum departments and led by Aandrea Stang on behalf of MOCA Education, Think Tank develops the parameters of the program and selects participating artist groups. The goals and achievements of Engagement Party evolve as Think Tank engages with collectives, their projects, and their audiences.
