Seasonal Special Happenings

Art Speak

When: Thu., Aug. 6 2015

If you’ve walked or driven past MOCA Cleveland after dark this summer, you’ve probably seen Jimmy Kuehnle’s 40 ft. tall (25 ft. wide), bright pink, inflatable installation in the building’s large front window. The soft, bright form intentionally contrasts MOCA Cleveland’s cutting edge architecture. The internal components include lights, fans and timers to regulate the air pressure. This causes the form to slowly expand and contract, as if it were alive and breathing. At night, the work glows brightly, and is visible far down Euclid Avenue. Kuehnle will discuss this site-specific installation at Happy Dog at Euclid Tavern in conjunction with MOCA Cleveland’s Summer 2015 exhibition, How to Remain Human. Kuehnle’s talk begins at 6 p.m. Following the presentation, guests will have the opportunity to venture down Euclid Ave. and explore How to Remain Human before the museum closes at 9 p.m. Free.
