To prepare for GTA21, the Museum will be closed August 30 - September 28, 2021.

MOCA's Executive Director and CEO #kathleenbartels said, “We so appreciate everyone’s efforts to help MOCA reopen and grateful to the artists whose work is on view. During the Museum’s physical closure, the MOCA team has been actively expanding digital offerings, securing funding to broaden the exhibition and education programmes, finalizing a five-year strategic plan, and developing a set of initiatives as we look towards the future. Being able to reopen MOCA as a safe and inspiring environment offers the opportunity to once again come together, albeit socially distant, to engage, discuss, and appreciate the essential role that art plays in our lives. We look forward to welcoming our visitors and members back to experience work by influential artists that garnered critical acclaim before and during shutdown.”
