Curator-led walkthrough of Long Story Short

Member Event

MOCA members at the Contributing level and above are invited to a walkthrough of Long Story Short led by MOCA Curator Anna Katz.

Long Story Short presents artworks dating from the 1940s to the present day, drawn from MOCA’s world-renowned, ever-growing collection of more than 7,500 objects. It demonstrates the myriad ways contemporary artists have addressed aesthetic, political, and philosophical concerns in the last seventy-five years, whether by innovating new forms of abstract art, commemorating loves and losses, rethinking the conventions of portraiture, or challenging the secondary status of craft. By exhibiting artworks that are widely regarded as hallmarks of the museum’s collection alongside lesser-known pieces, recent acquisitions, and artworks that have never previously been on view at MOCA, Long Story Short reminds us that art history, and history more broadly, is made in the present.

An invitation with event details will be emailed to members at the Contributing level ($200) and above. Memberships can be purchased or renewed online. If you would like to upgrade an existing membership, please contact the Membership Department at
