The MOCA art collection comprises over 7000 art objects.  It’s one of the most compelling contemporary art collections in the world.

The Museum of Modern Art houses its art in four facilities.  I think the best known is facility on Grand Ave downtown near The Broad Art Museum.  There is also the Geffen Contemporary at MOCA, and MOCA Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles… and a MOCA in Nevada named Double Negative.

The MOCA Downtown Los Angeles location is home to almost 5,000 artworks created since 1940, including masterpieces by classic contemporary artists, and inspiring new works by emerging and mid-career artists from Southern California and around the world.

The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA

The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA is located on the east side of downtown in a warehouse district now known as the Arts District. The 55,000 square foot facility is the best suited for large scale sculptures, multi-media and electronic installations.

The name is due to a $5-million gift from The David Geffen Foundation in support of the museum.
