This artist talk will feature exhibiting artist Martin Boyce and MOCA’s Chief Curator and Associate Director, November Paynter. The two will discuss Boyce’s current installation and new commission produced by MOCA, Future Blossom (For Yokeno Residence), showcased within Thomas Demand’s HOUSE OF CARD.
Boyce’s sculptural ceiling piece makes reference to MOCA’s unique architectural elements as well as Demand’s Model Study I series, which depicts details of architectural models. In addition to Future Blossom, the duo will also reflect on the playful nature of HOUSE OF CARD, looking to explore Boyce’s artistic practice in parallel with that of Demand’s.
