Making Space: Recent Photography Acquisitions

This exhibition highlights a selection of photographs that have recently joined MOCA’s renowned collection, including major gifts and both contemporary and historical purchases. Works by artists such as LaToya Ruby Frazier, Senga Nengudi, Wolfgang Tillmans, and others share an interest in the possibilities and sometimes limits of the camera's definition of space, whether as evidence for a claim on it or of what spaces the camera cannot capture.

Making Space: Recent Photography Acquisitions is organized by Rebecca Lowery, Assistant Curator, The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

Exhibitions at MOCA are supported by the MOCA Fund for Exhibitions with major funding provided by The Offield Family Foundation and generous funding provided by Judith Angerman, Earl and Shirley Greif Foundation, Nathalie Marciano and Julie Miyoshi.
