MOCA Moving Images: ECCE HOMO
The Museum of Contemporary Art is partnering with the Wolfsonian Public Humanities Lab at Florida International University to present a film and panel discussion in coordination with the exhibition “My Name is Maryan.”
This final program in the series presents “Ecce Homo, Maryan S. Maryan with Kenny Schneider”, 1975 (1 hour 32 minutes). Included in the exhibition, Ecce Homo is one of the last works of the Polish-Jewish artist Maryan.
