A former police car warehouse in L.A.'s Little Tokyo Historic District, renovated by the noted California architect Frank Gehry, The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA (formerly The Temporary Contemporary) opened in 1983. This location offers 40,000 square feet of exhibition space.

Exhibitions at The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA are currently closed for installation through May 18, 2019.

WAREHOUSE Programming is open with an expanded bookstore, a reading nook, rest, meet, and work spaces with free WiFi, and several video installations. The current video works on view are by artists Fischili & Weiss and Mark Leckey. Over the course of the coming months MOCA will be actively transitioning this space into a vibrant, multi-use anchor under the umbrella of WAREHOUSE Programs.
