Moving is a big deal, whether it involves two men and a truck or the large-scale planning needed to transplant a contemporary museum.
On the eve of its move to University Circle, the Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland's last show in the glassed-in William D. Ginn Gallery considers various aspects of what the shift means for the institution and the community.
It also does some thinking about really big subjects, like the nature of change and that biggest of all transformations, the Apocalypse -- or at least about the goofy confrontational edge of "end times" rhetoric.
For the exhibit "8501 to 11400 (On Moving)," curator Megan Lykins Reich brings together three Cleveland artists whose work blends private and public concerns.
