featured publications

As an institution committed to displaying a wide variety of cutting-edge art, MOCA exhibitions are rotated throughout the year. MOCA (formally the Contemporary Art Center of Virginia) publications serve as academic record for our institution which, unlike many other Museums, does not have a permanent collection to document its institutional growth. Artist and group exhibition catalogues are a way of recording MOCA’s academic achievement and aid the museum in reaching its strategic goal of “becoming an intellectual centerpiece of the region and engage in national discourse.”
