MOCA : nothing but contemporary art

museum

In the north of Miami, the Museum of Contemporary Art wants to make art accessible to all.

Hidden behind Little Haiti, MOCA is far from the trendy neighbourhoods. Though it is small in size, the MOCA is a giant in its ability to spot talent: the museum owns about 600 works.

Opened in 1996, in a building designed by a New York architect, it is interesting in more ways than one. Its priority is to make contemporary art accessible to all, especially lower-income people. Moreover, it gives great prominence to emerging artists. MOCA is known for its innovative, even provocative exhibitions, of which there are between eight and ten every year. This does not prevent it from also putting together mainstream exhibitions.

In recent years, it has shown exhibitions of world-famous artists like Julian Schnabel, Dan Flavin, Louise Bourgeois, and Annette Messager. On the last Friday of each month, a jazz concert is scheduled. There is no admission fee for visiting the garden.
