Paraskevidekatriaphobia is the 'fear of Friday the 13th' and it's a real issue resulting in hundreds of millions in financial losses annually. People avoid marrying, travelling, or in some cases working on Friday the 13th.

Today we are asking you--art lover, Member, supporter, and arts and culture enthusiast-- to celebrate this supposedly unlucky day, and join us in raising $13,000 in just 24 hours to support another year of engaging exhibitions and public programs.

12/11/2019

In 2013, artist Liz Larner created ix (caesura), a wall-bound sculpture currently on view at MCASD Downtown in the exhibition Bound to the Earth: Art, Materiality, and the Natural World.

Larner's work questions the traditional attributes of sculpture, such as the relationships between volume, mass, color, and form in space. In ix (caesura), a lozenge-shaped relief becomes a miniature map, both compressed and suggestive of more. The earthen material and disrupted surface evoke geological references, even as the title suggests the structure of language (caesura is a break in a line of poetry).

This week we’re sharing insider facts about MCASD’s collection related to the number 13 as we gear up for our $13 on 13 campaign. On Friday, December 13th, we're asking you--art lover, Member, supporter, and arts and culture enthusiast--to give $13 to help fund another year of exciting exhibitions and engaging public programs. Help us raise $13,000 in just 24 hours!

Acquired February 13, 2001 > Artist Rubén Ortiz Torres deals with issues revolving around the borderlands of Mexico and the United States. In a series of works that began in 1992, Ortiz Torres alters baseball caps to manipulate popular icons. Referencing youth culture's use of sport attire as a fashion accessory, he plays with the names of major league baseball teams interweaving various political and historical events. MCASD is proud to have acquired four of these works on February 13, 2001. All four works are currently on loan to the exhibition Customatismo at the Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MUAC) in Mexico City, which will travel to MCASD in Spring 2021.

Gifted in 2013 > MCASD acquired several works by the Bulgarian-born artist Christo in 2013, including this Wrapped Portrait of Jeanne-Claude (1963), featuring his late wife and collaborator. Christo and Jeanne-Claude are best known for the monumental projects they accomplished over nearly four decades. These include the 24 1/2 mile-long Running Fence in California's Sonoma and Marin Counties (1976), the Wrapped Reichstag in Berlin (1995), and the epic-scale crowd pleaser The Gates (2005), which comprised 7,053 fabric banners that spanned the walkways of New York's Central Park.

On #GivingTuesday, we ask you to consider donating to the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego to help us continue important programs like ArtOASIS.

The ArtOASIS program promotes healing by helping individuals find value and meaning through creativity. Military members are invited to take part in a series of art classes held at the Naval Base in Point Loma and at MCASD, where they produce original works of art as a means of coping with the effects of combat-related stress. This year the program expanded to serve residents at Veterans Village of San Diego (VVSD). MCASD is a proud supporter of San Diego’s military community, and we’re honored to present a Showcase of work created by ArtOASIS participants, currently on view at MCASD Downtown through January 12, 2020.
