This non-profit, independent museum is dedicated to the promotion of contemporary art, both eastern and western. Its inclusive, open-minded approach means a diverse range of exhibitions from many different cultures are showcased here—the last couple of years have seen a Van Cleef & Arpels retrospective and a celebration of 25 years of Pixar. It may not exhibit the same kind of cuttting-edge works one normally associates with the words "contemporary art," but the links it has forged with other museums around the world and its extensive team of curators have placed it solidly at the forefront of its field.


Remarkably, every exhibition offers children and young adults the chance to be creative themselves in some way, with MoCA’s art teachers offering art history lessons as well as handson creative classes. Guided tours are also available, and there is often a talk given by the featured artist before each new exhibition. Furthermore, the biannual MoCA Envisage considers the direction and motifs of contemporary Chinese art.
