"Legislate Crazy" at MOCA Tucson

Feel free to get a little crazy as Tucson’s Museum of Contemporary Art mixes an interactive component with the current “Legislate Crazy” exhibition by artist Armando Miguelez. Every Friday, through March 30, visitors can take a picture in the Legislate Crazy Photo Booth with a sign from his compilation of artwork and that picture will be installed as part of the exhibit. It’s a sort of “interactive photo booth,” that allows people in the community to have fun with the artwork on display. Museum visitors can strike a pose, make a face, and be as silly or serious as they like in their pictures.

Miguelez, a Tucson native, has worked in many countries including Mexico, Spain and India. His art touches on various cultural and political issues.

He says of himself and his work:

“Southern Arizona is one of those spaces, a strange territory that is neither here nor there, and where some people are allowed and others are not. These are the issues I find to be the most important of our present time. Beyond my own lucubrations on how I think the world should be, I’m more caught up in how the world is. By acknowledging this current state, we can possibly transcend ourselves. In other words, the first step is admitting you have a problem.”

The Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson (265 S. Church Ave., 520-624-5019) is open noon to 5 p.m. Wednesdays through Sundays, admission is $8. You can use the Legislate Crazy Photo Booth from 3 to 5 p.m. Fridays through March 30.
