Guest Lecture: "The Museum of Conceptual Art (MOCA), 1970–1984," by Tom Marioni

May 17, 2014 - 3:00pm

In 1970, Tom Marioni founded the Museum of Conceptual Art (MOCA), which he described at the time as “a large-scale social work of art.” Until the museum closed in 1984, he organized many groundbreaking shows, including Sound Sculpture As in 1970. MOCA has entered history as one of the first alternative art spaces. Marioni had one-person shows in several significant venues for early conceptual art, among them the Richard Demarco Gallery in Edinburgh in 1972 and Gallery Foksal in Warsaw in 1975. In 1977 he had a solo show, The Sound of Flight, at the de Young. 

Guest Lecture: "Reading Other People's Mail," by Ted Purves

May 10, 2014 - 3:00pm

Ted Purves will speak on Steven Leiber's archive. The art dealer and collector opened the Steven Leiber Gallery (later Steven Leiber Basement) in 1987 before turning his focus to artists' ephemera: brochures, posters, exhibition announcements, flyers, and so on. His archive became an important resource for scholars, curators, artists, and students.
