Los Angeles’ Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) is set to present ‘Carl Craig: Party/After-Party’. The exhibition will be held in the museum’s WAREHOUSE location at The Geffen Contemporary and will run from April 16th to July 23rd.
Carl Craig’s sensorial environment ‘Party/After-Party’ is “a visceral sound and somatic experience that evolves with each new iteration” that guides visitors through a club night from the perspective of the DJ.
“With Party/After-Party, Craig fuses the legacies of Detroit techno and minimalist sound art,” said Alex Sloane, MOCA Associate Curator and organizer of the exhibition. “Using MOCA’s WAREHOUSE itself as the inspiration for his composition, Craig has created a new chapter for the work. Melding an afrofuturist aesthetic with a playful commitment to the unexpected, Party/After-Party situates club culture firmly within the museum space and does so through the lens of techno and the Black artists who pioneered the genre.”
Originally commissioned by Dia Art Foundation, this sonic statement responds directly to the architecture of The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA’s WAREHOUSE space and reclaims the former manufacturing site and police storage facility as a platform for reinvention and radical innovation.
