On Sunday we pointed ourselves downtown towards two new shows at MOCA, The Geffen Contemporary. "Rodney Graham: A Little Thought", and "SIGN LANGUAGE" are both running from July 25 to November 29, 2004.
Rodney Graham: A Little Thought
This exhibition is culled from the museums permanent collection, and includes work that, "appropriate the format, material, and conventions of signage and advertising in order to communicate their respective messages, yet countermand the real-world intentions of such things," according to MOCA. Amanda was especially concerned with the arrangment of the work herein, where several pieces by an artist were alternated with a random set of other works. Overall, again, this was not highly moving or unique.
