Pipilotti Rist: Big Heartedness, Be My Neighbor

MOCA 250 SOUTH GRAND AVE, Los Angeles, CA

Pipilotti Rist: Big Heartedness, Be My Neighbor is the first West Coast survey of the internationally renowned Swiss media artist. Rist’s installations explore relationships of video and the body; exterior environments and interior psychological landscapes; and reason and instinct.
