The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA)'s highly anticipated annual gala will be held Saturday, November 12, 2011, at MOCA Grand Avenue. Legendary performance artist Marina Abramović will serve as the evening’s artistic director, choreographing an unforgettable, participatory evening of performance and music, including an appearance by a special guest musician. For the third year, gala leadership includes MOCA Board Co-Chair Maria Arena Bell and MOCA Founding Chairman and Life Trustee Eli Broad as gala chairs, and Larry Gagosian and Dasha Zhukova as honorary chairs.
This year, MOCA’s gala guests will also have the opportunity to preview the exhibition Naked Hollywood: Weegee in Los Angeles, which will open to the public on November 13, 2011. Curated by art historian Richard Meyer, this will be the first museum survey devoted to the body of work that the tabloid photographer known as Weegee produced in Southern California.
