The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) is dedicated to making contemporary art accessible to diverse audiences – especially underserved populations – through the collection, preservation and exhibition of the best of contemporary art and its art historical influences. MOCA exhibits contemporary art that connects issues at the heart of our diverse community with global conversations in the arts, through a series of innovative exhibitions and public programs. 2018-19 highlights include Mira Lehr: Tracing A Red Thread, an ode to South Florida’s ecological struggles that has been met with critical acclaim; and AfriCOBRA: Messages to the People, a historic 50th anniversary exhibition of works that helped define the visual aesthetic of the Black Arts Movement. MOCA became a collecting institution in 1995 and is home to nearly 500 works by local, national, and international contemporary artists made accessible to the public through curated exhibitions. MOCA has presented solo and survey exhibitions by artists including Edouard Duval-Carrié, Purvis Young, Tracey Emin and Wangechi Mutu, and local artists such as Bhakti Baxter, Naomi Fisher and Daniel Arsham in important early-career exhibitions. Educational and public programs bring hands-on art-making experiences, and opportunities to meet artists, to the diverse North Miami community and visiting audiences. These include dynamic youth programs, free Jazz at MOCA on the Plaza, and lectures by leading artists and thinkers. ​
