Trying the Hand of God (2009)
April 2, Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles
w/ Sue Huang
At a recreation of Mexico City’s Azteca Stadium on the MOCA sculpture plaza, participants repeatedly reenact Diego Maradona’s illegal but unpenalized “Hand of God” goal against England during the 1986 FIFA World Cup. TVs throughout the museum show the event as it is repeatedly remade.
