In the DIY spirit of Riot Grrrl, OCMA offers a special screening of "Maker,” a feature-length documentary on the Maker Movement and its impact on society, culture and economy in the U.S. “Maker” looks into a new wave of Do-It-Yourself and Do-It-Together culture fueled by passion and powered by the advent of new technologies.
Join OCMA staff and your colleagues for a special educator preview of our spring exhibitions: Alien She, Fred Tomaselli: The Times, Selections: Dieter Roth, and Misappropriations: New Acquisitions. Inspired by these exhibitions, we will investigate the mechanisms of history and how they influence whose stories get told.
Join us for the opening day celebration of OCMA’s new exhibitions! Hear from the curators and meet the artists. Learn new silkscreening techniques, play a tune, and build your identity at our drop-in workshops led by local Riot Grrrl Chapters; OC Rock N’ Roll Camp for Girls; and the LGBT Center OC.
In recognition of OCMA’s much anticipated exhibit The Avant-Garde Collection and the centennial of the start of World War I, this fascinating series will examine the historic avant-garde and commemorate the “War to End All Wars,” deploying the conflict as a backdrop to the surprising resilience of artistic creativity during this dark time. The artists’ daunting struggle to innovate will be explored and the evolution of the avant-garde will be defined.
