On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA), debuts "COLLECTION: MOCA'S FIRST THIRTY YEARS", the largest-ever installation of its renowned permanent collection featuring more than 500 artworks by over 200 artists. MOCA's collection, which numbers nearly 6,000 works dating from 1939 to the present day, is internationally regarded as one of the most important collections of postwar art in the world. While works from the collection have been seen in more than 100 thematic exhibitions at MOCA since the museum's founding in 1979, the new installation will make a significant portion of the collection accessible to the public on a long-term basis.
"COLLECTION: MOCA'S FIRST THIRTY YEARS includes works in various media by Diane Arbus, Chris Burden, Willem de Kooning, Öyvind Fahlström, Alberto Giacometti, Nan Goldin, Robert Irwin, Donald Judd, On Kawara, Mike Kelley, Franz Kline, Paul McCarthy, Piet Mondrian, Bruce Nauman, Claes Oldenburg, Jackson Pollock, Robert Rauschenberg, Mark Rothko, and Antoni Tapies, among many other artists. The exhibition is organized by MOCA Chief Curator Paul Schimmel.
