Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland Tour

Megan Reich, Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland, USA

The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland plays an urgent role in advancing culture in this city and beyond. A non-collecting institution and the region’s only contemporary art museum, MOCA Cleveland pushes the boundaries of innovation, creativity, and experimentation through exhibitions, publications, education, and outreach.

This tour will start with a behind-the-scenes look at MOCA’s new building, which opened in October 2012. The first museum and U.S. commission for London-based architect Farshid Moussavi, MOCA’s building embodies principles of transparency, flexibility, and sustainability, and provides dynamic spaces for the Museum’s ever-changing program. Following this architectural tour, participants will work with MOCA curators to examine the Museum’s Winter/Spring exhibitions, Lisa Oppenheim: Spine and Adam Pendleton: Becoming Imperceptible. The team will then dive deep into the Museum’s distinctive history and exciting future, discussing how the museum is exploring issue-based programming, visitor engagement, and new technologies to demonstrate public value and maximize its global influence.
