A Blue Star Museum that offers free admission to active-duty military and their family, Memorial Day through Labor Day, Tucson's Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) presents 4 new exhibitions in time for summer:  

MACHINEHISTORIES | TUCSON 3 WAYS: A FORAY INTO DIGITAL ALCHEMY - Los Angeles-based Steven Joyner and Jason Pilarski are MachineHistories, a duo extremely well respected and intensely active in the field of fabricating artwork, products, and experiments for a prestigious list of clients. In correlation with-but independent of those applications-their exhibition in MOCA's Great Hall will be manifestly an expression of their own practice, unconnected to any commercial concerns. 

CHRISTOFER CHURCHILL-Long situated in New York where he exhibited at the Franklin Parrasch Gallery and Shoot the Lobster, and now living and working in Ojai, CA, Christofer Churchill stayed at MOCA Tucson as part of its residency program in the summer of 2015.  His work employs painting, drawing, and self-published zines.

STEVEN PARRINO-Steven Parrino (1958-2005) was a New York-based artist and musician known for his monochromatic paintings and a palette mostly limited to black, white, orange, red, blue, and silver, in works that he violently slashed, tore, or twisted off their stretchers, making what he called "Misshaped" paintings. His rough, folded, and cleft surfaces amounted to a purposeful, literal deconstruction of painting.

GARDENS OF THE PURE | KITTY BROPHY, EMMA KOHLMANN, ALICE MACKLER-Gardens of the Pure in the museum's northeast galleries brings together three artists whose collages and drawings make use of watercolor, gouache, pen, and paint to portray both female and male nudes in direct, sensuous, and occasionally disquieting style.
