One-of-a-Kind Meets Once-in-a-Lifetime
Welcome to Turn the Page: The First Ten Years of Hi-Fructose on view May 22 through Dec 31, 2016. The exhibition is a collaborative initiative by two like-minded organizations, MOCA and Hi-Fructose, The New Contemporary Art Magazine, based in San Francisco, California. The exhibition, curated by MOCA, is a retrospective of the magazine, featuring 51 of some of the foremost contemporary artists of this decade. “Turn the Page” represents the museum’s first large-scale contemporary retrospective and the first time these artists will be shown together in one location.
Ten years ago, two San-Francisco-based artists, Annie Owens-Seifert and Daniel “Attaboy” Seifert started an art magazine to share the type of art they loved. Over the years, Hi-Fructose has become an influential publication with a devoted international readership, celebrating diverse art that transcends genres from artists who break away from conventional trends.
Artists included in this exhibition are: AJ Fosik, Audrey Kawasaki, Barnaby Barford, Beth Cavener, Brian Dettmer, Brian McCarty, Camille Rose Garcia, Chris Berens, Erwin Wurm, Femke Hiemstra, Fulvio Di Piazza, Gary Taxali, Gehard Demetz, Greg Craola Simkins, James Jean, Jean-Pierre Roy, Jeff Soto, Jennybird Alcantara, Jeremy Geddes, Josh Keyes, Kate MacDowell, Kazuki Takamatsu, Kehinde Wiley, Kevin Cyr, Kris Kuksi, Lisa Nilsson, Marco Mazzoni, Marion Peck, Mark Dean Veca, Mark Ryden, MARS-1, Martin Wittfooth, Nicola Verlato, Olek, Parra, Ray Caesar, Ron English, Sam Gibbons, Scott Hove, Scott Musgrove, Shepard Fairey, Tara McPherson, Tiffany Bozic, Tim Biskup, Todd Schorr, Tracey Snelling, Travis Louie, Victor Castillo, Wayne White, Wim Delvoye, and Yoshitomo Nara.
Viewers of this exhibition will find more than 50 original works of art, ranging from hyper-realistic paintings of unexpected animal and nature-inspired juxtapositions to intricately built sculptures that eclipse traditional themes and mediums, a hallucinatory installation and even a crocheted community public art project that will be unveiled during MOCA’s annual Boardwalk Art Show on June 16. Additionally, a wide selection of educational programming, master classes, artist talks, collaborative community outreach, film screenings, panel discussions and events will provide the public an opportunity to interact with the art and artists.
