FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art

July 14, 2018September 30, 2018

MOCA Cleveland is pleased to participate in the upcoming FRONT International: Cleveland Triennial for Contemporary Art. In the lead up to July 2018 our curatorial team is working closely with FRONT’s Artistic Directors Michelle Grabner and Jens Hoffmann, to develop MOCA Cleveland's exhibition programming related to the theme of “An American City” that expresses the unique character of MOCA. During its run, FRONT will investigate the significance and meaning of staging a large-scale international Triennial in the contemporary context. Bringing together more than 70 local, national and international artists across mediums and disciplines, FRONT will partner with sites throughout the city of Cleveland and beyond to explore artistic collaborations, intellectual exchanges and curatorial dialogues connecting the city and the Great Lakes region to broader global, political and economic networks. FRONT’s ambitious program will weave critical approaches to museum exhibitions, public and educational programs, residencies, publications and research strategies in a complex presentation.
