MOCA - GEFFEN CONTEMPORARY
MOCA’s opening gala for the famous Surrealistic painter, Lucian Freud, was a night of grand spectacle. Firefly transformed the Geffen Contemporary into a visual playground, as multiple projectors bounced images and custom content off the room’s giant walls.
The museum patrons gathered in the galleries to see more than 100 nudes, portraits, and other paintings for the only U.S. showing of Freud’s intense, penetrating work.
The centerpiece of the evening, aside from the fascinating exhibit, were the performance artists and dancers that dazzled the guests with intricate choreography, only heightened by Firefly’s precise projections.
MOCA’s former director, Jeremy Strick, sent a personal note to Firefly, expressing his gratitude for the integral part they played in the evening. It was an unforgettable celebration of the power and raw strength of an artist free to work without filters.
