I joined MOCA for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is their BCAM collection, but this post isn’t about that.
This post is about a book signing there this Saturday from 1-3pm.
Mark Ryden will be at MOCA signing copies of his newest release The Tree Show (2009), a hardcover collection of recent works. Through paintings and sculpture inspired by the Roman poet Ovid’s tales of transformation in Metamorphoses, Ryden explores the mythological and transformative properties of trees, offering familiar preoccupations in new settings. MOCA members receive a 10% discount on the publication.
In addition, Silence (2008), a framed 24 x 18-inch limited-edition silkscreen will be available for purchase, with all proceeds benefiting MOCA. This print was commissioned by the MOCA Projects Council, a major support group comprised of women collectors and patrons of the arts.
Ryden will only sign copies of The Tree Show purchased from the MOCA Store (proof of purchase required) on a first come, first served basis. Due to high demand, early arrival is recommended; the signing will end promptly at 5pm.
The galleries at MOCA Grand Avenue will be closed to the public January 26 through February 14, 2009, for the installation of Dan Graham: Beyond.
