Date/Time: Friday, Sept. 11, 7:00-8:30 p.m. EST


Details: Join artists Luis Gispert and William Cordova as they discuss their past collaborations, current work, and future projects. Both Gispert and Cordova have artworks in MOCA’s permanent collection and have exhibited at the museum. In 2003, MOCA presented Cordova’s exhibition “No More Lonely Nights” with work that conjured various memories and emotions, inspired by songs, lyrics, and snippets of conversation. Cordova's site-specific installation fused urban culture and ancient Andean spirituality. MOCA presented Gispert’s first comprehensive solo museum exhibition in 2009, which featured large-scale photographs, videos, sculpture and film.
