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.

WAREHOUSE Programming is open with an expanded bookstore, a reading nook, rest, meet, and workspaces with free WiFi, a coffee cart featuring drinks and food by Cafe Dulce, and several video installations. The current video works on view are by artists Fischli & 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.
