featured publications

As an institution committed to displaying a wide variety of cutting-edge art, MOCA exhibitions are rotated out every 3-5 months. 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.”
