Photo Recap: Hedi Slimane "California Song" at MOCA Pacific Design Center
Fashion photographer Hedi Slimane "California Song" is the first West Coast solo museum exhibition of the photographer's work opened at MOCA Pacific Design Center with preview night on November 11. "California Song" spans the photographer's "California period" and traces his explorations of cycles of urban youth culture and artistic communities, through installations of photographic essays, exhibitions, and publications. The exhibition is divided into two parts: a series of black-and-white print photographs from his California years is shown on the ground floor, and a sonic, motion-photography installation, produced specifically for MOCA, is on the second floor, for the opening night "No Age" provided the sounds. The show opens on November 12, 2011 and runs through January 22, 2012.
