Attendance Information

Weather permitting, this event will be held on MOCA’s outdoor plaza. Please dress accordingly.

To ensure the safety of all museum visitors and staff, please note the following protocols will be followed at this event:

– All visitors and staff are required to wear masks and practice social distancing at all times when on the museum premises (indoor and outdoor), regardless of vaccination status.

Maria Maea is a multidisciplinary artist working in production, installation and performance. Through film, sculpture and movement she deepens her connection to source.

Micaela Tobin is a soprano, sound artist, and teacher based in Los Angeles, CA who specializes in experimental voice and contemporary opera. As a sound artist with a background in opera, Micaela integrates voice and electronics within the genres of noise and drone music. Her work incorporates ritualized gesture and amplified object-symbolism and explores her diasporic identity as a first-generation Filipina-American. Micaela’s vocal practice is based in building connections between the physical voice as a means of empowering one’s ‘inner’ voice and challenging colonial stories and systems.


were-:Nenetech Forms is co-organized by artists rafa esparza, Timo Fahler, and Curator-at-Large Laura Copelin with support from Assistant Curator Alexis Wilkinson.

Generous support for the exhibition is provided by the University of Arizona School of Art and Arizona Arts, The Diane & Bruce Halle Foundation, VIA Art Fund and Wagner Foundation, and Arizona Humanities.
