MOCA Pacific Design Center presents “Tongues Untied,” titled after the landmark film by poet, activist, and artist Marlon Riggs, “Tongues Untied” focuses on queer artistic production in the 1980s and 90s. The majority of works—ranging in media from photography, painting, video, drawing, installation, and performance documentation—are culled from MOCA’s Permanent Collection and explore issues of gender, race, sexuality, persona, and masquerade. The exhibition coincides with the 30th anniversary of the City of West Hollywood.
Members’ Opening: Friday, June 5, 7:00 PM – 9:00 PM
