Off the Ruling Class

When: Thu., Sept. 17 2015

Today, MOCA Cleveland debuts the first exhibition of its Fall 2015 schedule. Nevet Yitzhak’s OFF THE RULING CLASS is the artist’s first solo museum exhibition in the U.S. Commissioned by MOCA Cleveland, Yitzhak’s project explores the ritualistic, annual conservation of the Cleveland Museum of Art’s Rodin sculpture, The Thinker. Inspired by the sculpture’s controversial history, Yitzhak combines archival imagery with digital animation to connect the 1970 bombing of the sculpture with Rodin’s original subject matter, Dante Alighieri, author of The Divine Comedy. OFF THE RULING CLASS remains on view through Jan. 10. MOCA Cleveland general admission is $8 for adults; $6 for seniors; $5 for children ages 6 -17 and students with valid college ID (children age 5 and under, free). (Usmani)
