Bob Mizer and Tom of Finland exhibit at MOCA closes this week

GayThis past November I wrote about this exhibit at MOCA in Los Angeles and I’ve had a few of you write to me to let me know that you’ve enjoyed it.  I was recently contacted by the organizers and asked if I would remind readers (especially those of you in the Los Angeles area or those of you traveling there) that the exhibit closes this Sunday.

The MOCA exhibition features a selection of Tom of Finland’s drawings and collages, alongside Mizer’s rarely seen photo-collage “catalogue boards” and films, as well as a comprehensive collection of his groundbreaking magazine Physique Pictorial, where drawings by Tom were first published in 1957.

On view at:  MOCA PACIFIC DESIGN CENTER
8687 Melrose Avenue in West Hollywood

  1. Finland to me is bizarre fetishistic fifties era eroticism. Like gay Hugh Hefner mentality
