eCLEctic: Soles On View
$20 General | $15 for MOCA Members
Are you a self-professed “Sneakerhead” with an untouchable Air Jordan collection? Or a Hypebeast that cops the latest collaboration drops? Perhaps an aspiring sneaker designer looking to improve your practice? Even if you just like quality shoes, Soles On View is for you.
Love them or hate them, sneakers are a key symbol of contemporary American culture, viewed by many as wearable art as fit for red carpet runways and museum exhibitions as for the court.
They also have become material and subject matter for many contemporary artists.
This event explores various aspects of sneaker culture, from the art of the hunt to artist/brand collaborations to extreme customization Panel discussions will explore sneakers from the lenses of the buyer, collector, designer, and artist, while creative designs and sneaker-inspired art will be on view.
This is the second in MOCA’s eCLEctic series, events that connect you with global cultural trends through the NEO artists and producers pushing them forward here and beyond. eCLEctic mixes brain and body, providing you--Cleveland’s cultural adventurers—with the kind of smart/social events you prefer.
