Call & Response - Reinterpreting MOCA Jacksonville's Permanent Collection
In 2016, the Museum adopted a new thematic collecting strategy that celebrates and guides the direction of the Permanent Collection. As it supports a wide array of art-making practices, the six themes explore “Art as Social Commentary,” “The Evolution of Mark-making,” “Material as Meaning,” “New Media,” “Process and Object Relationship,” and “(Re)presentation.” The exhibition Call & Response unveils these collecting areas to the community for the very first time. To illustrate their ongoing relevance in contemporary dialogues, MOCA Jacksonville invited a handful of artists to engage with the collection and participate by either the creation a new work of art or presenting an existing piece for inclusion in the exhibition. By doing so, the Permanent Collection acts as a springboard for artists to respond in a variety of ways and media-from sharing new work inspired by the Permanent Collection's themes and then placing them in conversation with one another.
Invited artists: Olaf Breuning, Adrian Esparza, Rosemarie Fiore, Carly Glovinski, Beth Lipman, Willy Le Maitre, Luke Murphy, teamLab, and Norwood Viviano

teamLab (f. 2001) is an art collective, interdisciplinary group of ultratechnologists whose collaborative practice seeks to navigate the confluence of art, science, technology, design and the natural world. Various specialists such as artists, programmers, engineers, CG animators, mathematicians and architects form teamLab.teamlab.art
teamLab aims to explore a new relationship between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world through art. Digital technology has allowed art to liberate itself from the physical and transcend boundaries. teamLab sees no boundary between humans and nature, and between oneself and the world; one is in the other and the other in one. Everything exists in a long, fragile yet miraculous, borderless continuity of life.
teamLab’s works are in the permanent collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Sydney; Art Gallery of South Australia, Adelaide; Asian Art Museum, San Francisco; Asia Society Museum, New York; Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, Istanbul; and National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne.
