MOCA Grand Prix
by Knifeandfork

THURSDAY, MAY 7, 7–10pm
MOCA Grand Avenue, Sculpture Plaza
250 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90012

For their final Engagement Party event, Knifeandfork invites participants to race remote-control cars through MOCA’s current exhibition, A Changing Ratio: Painting and Sculpture from the Collection. Using mounted cameras, each Wi-Fi–enabled car is driven remotely through a video game interface that shows the car’s point of view. Through the lens of 1980s American gaming culture, this project offers an alternative perspective on the permanent collection exhibition. Awards will be presented for the fastest times of the evening. Hot dogs and hamburgers will be available for purchase.
