Event Recap: MOCA’s Teeny Tiny Woman Makes a Big Splash

By Angelica Martin

A generous crowd of MOCA members and friends and family of the artist came out to celebrate the exhibition Amanda Ross-Ho: Teeny Tiny Woman, which featured a haphazard mixture of paintings, sculpture, photographs and textiles, all of which were bound together by 17 stark white, large-scale wall panels. Each of the panels was created by Ross-Ho (pictured) for this exhibition and spent a period of time in her workspace, where each one collected residue from production and choreographed movements inspired by her daily activities.

The panels were then transferred to the MOCA Pacific Design Center for last night’s reception, where they served as the platform for Ross-Ho’s exploration of “translation, scale, and the authored collapse of authentic gesture and performance.”

The opening reception for Ross-Ho’s latest exhibition was a lively affair, and the crowd in attendance was practically swooning over the striking large-scale paintings and tiny-by-comparison artworks adorning the panels. Teeny Tiny Woman was exciting, interesting and thought-provoking; overall worth the trip to see a teeny tiny woman make a big, big splash.
