Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA)

Nancy Foster

Museum of Contemporary Art was founded in 1979 by artists, philanthropists, and civic leaders with the mission of building the defining museum of contemporary art. By providing a dynamic, interactive forum, the museum is able to introduce contemporary art to a large audience. MOCA serves over 300,000 visitors annually at two unique locations that make contemporary art readily accessible to the diverse communities of Los Angeles.

Funds will support the Fall 2024 Olafur Eliasson show at MOCA. The exhibition will present a series of newly-commissioned site-specific installations by Icelandic-Danish artist Olafur Eliasson as part of The Getty’s PST Art & Science Collide initiative. It will consist of an articulated series of installations comprising kaleidoscopes in five sections of The Geffen Contemporary that draw on different geometric and mathematical principles and their impact on perception. These works will respond to the architecture and place of the building itself as well as to the specific atmosphere of its setting in Los Angeles. Olafur Eliasson will run September 2024-March 2025.
