More contemporary art than you can handle!

Los Angeles, USA, North America

The Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles, MOCA for short, was established in 1979. It is the only artist-founded museum in Los Angeles and houses one of the most fascinating collections of contemporary art in the world, comprising roughly 7,000 objects created since 1940. Some of the masterpieces in its permanent collection include Jackson Pollock's early drip painting Number 3, 1948 and David Smith's 8-foot-tall stainless steel sculpture Cubi III, as well as works by Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, Ellsworth Kelly, Agnes Martin, Cy Twombly and Cindy Sherman. MOCA has four distinct locations – three in Los Angeles (MOCA Grand Avenue, The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, and MOCA Pacific Design Center), and Michael Heizer’s seminal artwork Double Negative (1969-70) in the Nevada desert.
