On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles (MOCA), unveils Collection: MOCA's First Thirty Years, the largest comprehensive installation to date of its renowned permanent collection. 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 over 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 an long-term basis. The layout of Collection: MOCA's First Thirty Years will be chronological, providing a comprehensive history of the last 70 years of contemporary art and touching on every significant movement and development during this period. Filling the galleries at both of MOCA's downtown Los Angeles locations, the installation will occupy 24,000 square feet of exhibition space at MOCA Grand Avenue with works dating from 1939 through 1980, and an additional 26,000 square feet of exhibition space at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA with works dating from 1980 to the present. Geographical as well as ideological overlaps and distinctions will be highlighted, and a mix of well established and lesser-known artists will be featured. Collection: MOCA's First Thirty Years will include works in various media by Diane Arbus, Chris Burden, Willem de Kooning, Oyvind Fahlstrom, 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.
