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.”
Extensively illustrated, a new 216-page hardback monograph published on the occasion of the exhibition Inka Essenhigh: A Fine Line organized by the Virginia Museum of Contemporary Art (March 17-August 19, 2018). Including a foreword by Alison Byrne, MOCA's Director of Exhibitions and Education, an essay by Heather Hakimzadeh, MOCA Curator and artist and writer Matthew Weinstein and an interview with artist Ryan McGinness.
