The Art of Our Time at MOCA

Chief Curator Helen Molesworth has installed an exhibition highlighting the affinities between artists and artworks in an attempt to rethink the now conventional chronological installation of art. By exploring connections that emerge through artist friendships, the history of art schools, and artists’s own stated interest in other artists’s work, this presentation of MOCA’s esteemed collection of post-1945 art highlights iconic works alongside lesser known material drawn from the nearly 7000 objects in MOCA’s collection. Recently acquired work is on view, gesturing towards MOCA’s newly invigorated collecting. MOCA’s collection is considered to be among the most important collections of post-war art in the world, this installation aims to reintroduce its richness and depth as well as signal a new era of scholarship and a renewed commitment to collecting at the institution.
