The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles
We are contemporary.
We question and adapt to the changing definitions of art.
We are a museum.
We present, collect, and interpret the art of our time.
We care for the experience of art, the inevitability of change, the multiplicity of perspectives, the urgency of contemporary expression.
Established in 1979, we are the only artist-founded museum in Los Angeles. We are dedicated to collecting and exhibiting contemporary art. We house one of the most compelling collections of contemporary art in the world, comprising roughly 7000 objects, and have a diverse history of ground-breaking, historically-significant exhibitions.
