R. H. Quaytman and Bennett Simpson in Conversation


MOCA Senior Curator Bennett Simpson speaks with artist R. H. Quaytman on the occasion of R. H. Quaytman, Morning: Chapter 30, the first major Los Angeles presentation of work by the New York–based artist. Simpson and Quaytman will discuss Quaytman’s signature attention to the intersection of craft, life, and a vast network of intellectual and artistic interests; her commitment to site specificity; and the function of beauty in her painting. The exhibition features approximately 65 paintings from the past 10 years and a significant cycle of new work made in response to MOCA’s collection, particularly Michael Heizer’s Double Negative (1969-70).

Priority tickets are available to MOCA members one hour before the program at the MOCA Box Office. Fifteen minutes before the program begins tickets will be released to non-members. One ticket per person on a first come, first served basis. Early arrival is recommended.
