PLAY MOCA and COCO Design Group Join Forces

invertedLA (Photo Courtesy of COCO)The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles and music label IAMSOUND will present the first of three installments of PLAY MOCA this Friday July 27th from 6:00 to 10:00pm.  LA-based design group COCO will create a temporary installation titled invertedLA to showcase the museum’s collaboration of musicians, artists, and designers.

The curated space will feature 400 large balloons suspended above the crowds. The SCI-Arc graduates comprising COCO designed the balloons to morph with the atmosphere and imagery in motion, reflecting themes of LA’s varied and extraordinary topography. The overall effect is a playful, dynamic experience of music, film, light, and motion.

The first show will feature performances by Salem and IO ECHO, Visuals by Drew Barrymore, and a DJ Set by Health. Future shows will be held on August 17th and August 24th.
