"Public Offerings: Works by 25 Young Artists Shaping International Contemporary Art"
2001-04-01 until 2001-07-29
Museum of Contemporary Art, LA and the Geffen Contemporary
Los Angeles, CA, USA

Public Offerings presents breakthrough works by 25 of today's most important young artists, all graduates of leading art schools in Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, London, and Tokyo. These works have had significant impact on the subsequent creative development of these artists as well as on their critical and creative reception. Representing the first moment of critical attention given to the artist and the individual work, the works allude to the impact of the artist’s education and regional identity.

The exhibition features significant works from the late 1980s and early 1990s by Janine Antoni, Matthew Barney, Thomas Demand, Renée Green, Michael Joaquín Grey, Damien Hirst, Gary Hume, Toba Khedoori, Sharon Lockhart, Sarah Lucas, Steve McQueen, Takashi Murakami, Yoshitomo Nara, Chris Ofili, Laura Owens, Tsuyoshi Ozawa, Jorge Pardo, Manfred Pernice, Jason Rhoades, Yutaka Sone, Diana Thater, Rirkrit Tiravanija, Rachel Whiteread, and Jane and Louise Wilson.

Organized by MOCA Chief Curator Paul Schimmel with Project Director Ciara Ennis, the exhibition offers a rare opportunity to view many pivotal works for the first time since their debut and to examine similarities and differences between the cultural centers of Los Angeles, New York, Berlin, London, and Tokyo. For many of these artists, this is the first time that their works are being situated historically. The works featured in Public Offerings include photography, video, film, sculpture, installation, and painting and were made while still at art school or within a few years of graduation.
