Artists on Art: Jacob Koestler on My heart’s in my hand, and my hand’s pierced…
Free with Museum Admission
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. Koestler is currently an Adjunct Faculty member in Photography and Video at the Cleveland Institute of Art; his work was recently included in the exhibition THEM! at Cleveland’s Transformer Station. More information on Koestler's work can be found at jacobkoestler.com.
All current exhibitions are funded by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Leadership Circle gifts from anonymous donors, Yuval Brisker, Joanne Cohen and Morris Wheeler, Margaret Cohen and Kevin Rahilly, Becky Dunn, Harriet Goldberg, Agnes Gund, Richard and Michelle Jeschelnig, Donna and Stewart Kohl, Jan Lewis, Toby Devan Lewis, and Scott Mueller.
All MOCA Cleveland exhibitions are supported in part by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture, the Cleveland Foundation, the George Gund Foundation, and the continuing support of the Museum’s Board of Directors, patrons, and members.
