Artists on Art leverages the expertise of artists working right here in our region through monthly, in-gallery talks about one or more artworks on view in MOCA’s exhibitions. Sarah Kabot will discuss Next Day (New York Times, pages A1–A28) by Doug Ashford, featured in the exhibition A Poethical Wager. Kabot creates works that emphasize the overlooked, forgotten, or hidden structures that frame and shape our perceptions. One of her recent projects focuses on extracting and reimagining images found on the front pages of The New York Times.

Artists on Art leverages the expertise of artists working right here in our region. Each month, a local artist will provide an in-gallery, original interpretation of one or more artworks on view in MOCA’s exhibitions. Connecting with the works through affinities of material, process, or subject matter, each artist’s talk will broaden and deepen the meaning of the works and exhibitions.

Artists on Art leverages the expertise of artists working right here in our region through monthly, in-gallery talks about one or more artworks on view in MOCA’s exhibitions. Artist and musician Jacob Koestler will discuss Phil Collins's exhibition my heart's in my hand... currently on view at MOCA Cleveland. Koestler uses photography and video to examine the post-industrial Rust Belt cities in the Great Lakes region. Much of Koestler’s work disrupts the assumptions and stereotypes often associated with these places and their residents through multi-media installations.
