Human Remains

In conjunction with its Summer 2015 exhibition, How to Remain Human, MOCA Cleveland continues its ongoing presentation series, THE ART + DOGS OF OUR TIME at the Happy Dog at Euclid Tavern. Each month of the summer, MOCA invites one of the current exhibition’s artists to discuss his or her work, inspiration, subject matter, creative process and more. Last month, Michelangelo Lovelace discussed his socio-political paintings and the role his personal history and community have played in his career. This month, painter and former Clevelander, Harris Johnson will discuss his new work in How to Remain Human. He’ll also discuss his recent MFA studies at Virginia Commonwealth University. He earned a BFA in Painting from the Cleveland Institute of Art in 2009 and recently relocated to New York City. After the talk, visitors are invited to walk down Euclid Avenue to explore How to Remain Human at MOCA Cleveland until the museum closes at 9 p.m. Next month, performance artist Jimmy Kuehnle will discuss his experiments with inflatables in his work. You can see his giant, pink sculptural installation through MOCA’s glass exterior. Now, just imagine him wearing something like that and walking around downtown. The lecture is free. (Usmani)
