MOCA - Engagement Party - Oct. 2, 7-10pm

Finishing School has been invited by the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA) to be the inaugural participant in Engagement Party.

Engagement Party is a dynamic new initiative developed to engage innovative Los Angeles-based artist collectives. Over a three-year period beginning in October 2008, selected groups will participate in three-month residencies during which they will present a public program at MOCA Grand Avenue on the first Thursday of each month from 7 to 10pm. The goal of Engagement Party is to involve new artists and new audiences while reiterating MOCA's commitment to imaginative critical analyses of contemporary art in Los Angeles. Made possible by a major Artistic Innovation Fund grant from The James Irvine Foundation, MOCA's Engagement Party will host 12 artist collectives over the next three years.

For the first event, Finishing School will be presenting Executive Order Karaoke. Featuring special guest host Tammy Tomahawk, Executive Order Karaoke is a public action in which participants are invited to sing their favorite mixes of George W. Bush's executive orders to popular music. The evening will be filled with special guests, games, and prizes.

Executive Order Karaoke will happen on Thursday, October 2, 7-10pm at MOCA Grand Avenue, Sculpture Plaza

We hope to see you all there.
