The Museum of Contemporary Art (moCa) Cleveland presents a fall season of new exhibitions that includes, Alexis Rockman: The Great Lakes Cycle, Double Takes: Historic and Contemporary Film + VideoAleksandra Domanović: Untitled (In My Feelings), and Camel Collective: Gated Commune + Grip. 

The Great Lakes Cycle is Alexis Rockman’s most ambitious body of work to date. Rockman, an acclaimed painter and environmental activist, creates ecologically-focused works that seduce and provoke with equal verve. Blending extensive research, diverse techniques, and site-specific materials like sand or soil, Rockman’s paintings and drawings document history while also imagining future environments.

The exhibition includes five new, mural-sized paintings; a constellation of flora and fauna “field drawings;" and a suite of watercolors that all portray the evolution of the Great Lakes—which are among the world’s most beautiful, economically significant, and ecologically complex regions on the planet. Rockman’s new series celebrates the natural majesty and global importance of the Great Lakes while exploring how they are threatened by factors such as climate change, globalization, invasive species, mass agriculture, and urban sprawl.

Organized by the Grand Rapids Art Museum; with major support provided by an anonymous donor and coordinated at moCa Cleveland by Deputy Director Megan Lykins Reich

Double Takes: Historic and Contemporary Film + Video is an 11-month film and video exhibition program presented in collaboration with KADIST. Each month from October 2018 - September 2019, moCa will present one seminal work of early video or film with a contemporary video work from KADIST’s expansive international collection in celebration of moCa's 50th anniversary.  These 11 historic and recent films and videos are paired thematically. Some are aligned by formal or conceptual similarities while others serve as provocative counterpoints with relationships that range from the urgent to the absurd and span generations, demographics, and borders.

Double Takes presents works by: Lynda Benglis, Adelita Husni-Bey, Dara Birnbaum, Jiwon Choi, Tony CokesAlex Da CorteElena Damiani, Harun Farocki, Simone Forti, Sky Hopinka, Jibade-Khalil Huffman, Nina Könneman, Paul Kos, Cinthia Marcelle, Christian Marclay, Pedro Neves Marques, Rabih Mroué, Bruce Nauman, Martha Rosler, John Smith, The Propeller Group and SUPERFLEX, and Andy Warhol.

Double Takes: Historic and Contemporary Film + Video is curated by A. Will Brown, Assistant Curator, moCa Cleveland and Joseph del Pesco, International Director, KADIST, with support from Video Data Bank, School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

This first major solo exhibition in a United States museum of Aleksandra Domanović brings together recent sculptures and a newly commissioned film. Domanović is acclaimed for her work in sculpture, video, photography, and mixed-media. The presentation explores the intersection of technology, genetics, and agriculture in relation to the history and contemporary practice of genetic engineering, and the employment of controversial gene-editing technologies in plant and animal life with a particular focus on the history and relationship between humans and cows.

Aleksandra Domanović is curated by A. Will Brown, Assistant Curator, moCa Cleveland.

Gated Commune (2018) and Grip (2018) are two single-channel audio works by Camel Collective, the artistic partnership of Anthony Graves and Carla Herrera-Prats. Collaborating since 2010 as Camel Collective, Graves and Herrera-Prats work in video, sound, sculpture, performance, photography, and installation. Camel Collective’s research-based projects investigate the contemporary state of labor and the myths of cultural production with a particular focus on marginal histories.

Camel Collective: Gated Commune + Grip is curated by A. Will Brown, Assistant Curator, moCa Cleveland.

For 50 years, moCa Cleveland has played an urgent and exciting role in the city's cultural landscape, advancing the art and ideas of our time through civil dialogue and creative exchange. moCa is a non-collecting institution located in the University Circle district of Cleveland that has presented the works of more than 3,000 artists.
