New wavers Devo will be celebrated as part of The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles' new exhibition dubbed ''The Artist's Museum,'' which is a showcase of work by more than 140 artists who have helped shape the artistic dialogue in Los Angeles over the past 30 years.
The installation, which will be unveiled to the public on October 31, consists of a wall of roughly 400 Devo's iconic red energy domes, as well as photos and video of the band. The exhibition represents the diversity and uniqueness of the Los Angeles community, and highlights important works from legendary LA artists who remain vital and influential alongside those emerging from renowned local art schools, visionary artists associated with various street cultures and subcultures, and crossover artists connected to performance, music and film.
The Artist's Museum will be on view at MOCA Grand Avenue and The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA through January 31, 2011, so if you plan to visit LA any time soon, put this on your list of shit to do and see.
