At MOCA, the artist will show a 12-by-12-foot section of museum wall whose surface he peeled back until it curled down to the floor.
Denmark's Nina Beier is also creating new work for the show. She has selected used clothes from local sources to represent her interpretation of characteristics and qualities of fashion found around town. In her project, she uses everyday objects such as radiators, chairs, and clothing racks and affixes billboard paper posters onto them with glue.
"I am producing a new series of works entitled The Demonstrators. It follows a simple principle: hanging posters dipped in poster glue to dry on objects, as one would leave a towel out to dry," Beier explains. "The drying process joins the two objects in an inseparable union, generating something like a wet T-shirt effect."

The artist says her images are selected from photographs available in image banks. "They use the vocabulary that has been developed to predict what we need to express today."
Beier, who has shown her work in Miami during Art Basel, says she collected clothing for her project from area thrift stores. "This selection of clothes can be seen as a type of group portrait of the people here," she says.
Concludes Katrib, MOCA's associate curator: "The inspiration for the exhibition really came from looking at these artists and some of their works... I realized that there were relationships between them that should be articulated."
