OOF Books—the Los Angeles–based bookshop “dedicated to art books, rare books, and the art of the book, known for both its selection and programming with prominent emerging artists including Cassi Namoda, Tyler Matthew Oyer, and Katherina Olschbaur“—has opened a pop-up at the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA.*
This week, join founder Christie Hayden at the opening reception.
For art and fashion lovers: In 2013 the artist Max Hooper Schneider created a silk scarf edition with P.P.M. Studio, Milan. We are offering the edition for purchase, as well as his last available original artwork from this series—dense, hand-drawn graphic lines recalling imaginative worlds and biologies—which will be part of a forthcoming book published by DoPe Press in September 2019.
In addition, we have invited some friends and family from Paris to share their publications and journals: ParaguayPress, MAY, and Profane.

An exhibition of new narratives by the Los Angeles-based painter Cassi Namoda—women in love, women in tears, women at risk, seemingly droll and serene (but patience may be running low)—is now on view at Ghebaly.
The show—Namoda’s first solo exhibition in Los Angeles—”negotiates the intricacies of mixed cultural heritage, intricacies that reflect the wider cultural dynamics” of the formerly colonized Mozambique, where Namoda was born. (Her mother is Mozambican and her father American.)*
2245 East Washington Boulevard, downtown Los Angeles.
