As of October 22, MOCA will require all visitors aged 12 and up to show proof of vaccination.

Pamela Phatsimo Sunstrum’s Dynasty incorporates MOCA’s architecture and draws inspiration from the themes and structures explored in her earlier work, Diorama (2018). In Diorama, two screens, depicting a mythological landscape, became a backdrop on which to project new fantasies and fictions. Dynasty uses these same screens alongside a composition of thirteen separate panels. Together, the composition alludes to mythology, geology, storytelling, and theories on the nature of the universe.
