Winter Members' Preview

SAVE THE DATE February 5, 2020
Members’ Preview 6-7:30 pm
Public Opening 7:30-10 pm

| Free for Members

MOCA’s Winter 2020 Programme brings together the work of artists Carlos Bunga, Shelagh Keeley, Megan Rooney and Sarah Sze, all of whom address space as a physical and emotional construct to be endlessly rebuilt. Spanning the four floors of the museum, their artistic statements are set into a dialogue that emphasizes the transient and precarious conditions of our time.
