MOCA presents Cameron: Songs for the Witch Woman from October 11, 2014 to January 18, 2015 at MOCA Pacific Design Center. Organized by guest curator Yael Lipschutz, the exhibition will be the largest survey of Cameron’s work since 1989 and will include approximately 91 artworks and ephemeral artifacts. The exhibition features Cameron’s role as a pivotal figure in the development of postwar Los Angeles art. "A seminal figure within LA's mid-century counterculture, Cameron's work contains echoes of an important time that is also our time. A younger generation will be fascinated by her unique melding of surrealism and mysticism, and by her commitment to live her life as art," explains guest curator Lipschutz.
