It was a random day where I had nothing to do, so like any of those days I went out exploring.
I found myself outside of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) and decided to check it out.
The building used to be an elementary school that was converted into the museum. The bottom floor holds the gift shop and museum entry with a small amount of space for some of the exhibits. The top front floor is dedicated to the main exhibits with tall ceilings and small rooms dedicated to giving the pieces of art their own private space. Even the hallways were used to showcase the artwork. The rest of the elementary school is used for art classes that are available for the public to learn how to paint, draw, photograph, sculpt, etc.
I ended up checking out History Re-presented: Cai Zhisong, his large sculptures were showcased inside and outside of the museum. There were also video installations explaining the process of making and shipping those oversized sculptures out of his studio and into museums. I think what struck me the most where the large metal sculptures and the way that the faces looked so serene and the lines were so smooth…
I found the sculpture the entry ticket was based on!
Another part of his artwork was all about clouds; stenciled, painted, levitating, intersecting walls.
