After more than twenty years of exhibitions by The Museum of Contemporary Art hosted at the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood, the programming agreement between the two organizations has reached the end of its term. The alliance between MOCA and PDC, which encompassed operational, managerial, and exhibition services that have made the MOCA Gallery a cultural destination for MOCA’s patrons and the architectural and design community, will end after the current exhibition, One Day at a Time: Kahlil Joseph’s Fly Paper, closes on February 24. Over the last two decades, MOCA has exhibited at the PDC countless important and internationally acclaimed shows, including shows by artists such as Takashi Murakami, William Kentridge, Sterling Ruby, Catherine Opie, Rodarte, Jean Prouve, and Rick Owens, among many others.
“We have enjoyed a successful relationship with MOCA, and on behalf of our many showroom tenants in the design community, are appreciative of MOCA’s many wonderfully curated exhibitions,” said Charles S. Cohen, the owner of the PDC.
“We are proud of MOCA’s record of achievement at the PDC,” said Maria Seferian, Chair of the museum’s Board of Trustees. “We are grateful for our partnership with the PDC and Charles Cohen and now look forward to consolidating and growing our exhibition activities, including presentations on architecture and design, at MOCA’s two Downtown Los Angeles locations.”
