Seasonal Special Happenings

A Special Panel Discussion

When: Thu., Nov. 12 2015

In conjunction with Nevet Yitzhak’s OFF THE RULING CLASS video-based installation, part of MOCA Cleveland’s Fall 2015 exhibitions, MOCA hosts a special panel discussion exploring the 1970 bombing of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Auguste Rodin sculpture, The Thinker. Using the bombing and Yitzhak’s installation as a starting point, the panel will discuss the effects of cultural terrorism, as well as the role and power of icons in secular society. The panel includes Assistant Director and Associate Curator of Ancient Art at the Toledo Museum of Art Adam Levine, PH.D., director of graduate studies and an associate professor for the Department of Political Science at Case Western Reserve University. Pete Moore, PH.D. and Behrang Samadzadegan, one of the Cleveland Foundation’s Creative Fusion resident artists; originally from Tehran, Iran, but currently residing at Zygote Press. Brittany M. Hudak, Communications Manager of the Collective Arts Network (CAN) Journal, moderates. The discussion takes place from 7 to 8:30 p.m. and is free with MOCA Cleveland admission. (Usmani)
