The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA

The Geffen Contemporary at MOCA Review

Frank Gehry transformed what was a 40,000-square-foot former police warehouse in Little Tokyo into this top-notch museum, originally built as a temporary exhibit hall while the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) was under construction at California Plaza. Thanks to its popular reception, it remains one of two satellite museums of MOCA (the other is outside the Pacific Design Center in West Hollywood) and houses a sampling of its permanent collection. In addition, it puts on one or two special exhibits yearly. Call before you visit because the museum sometimes closes for installations.
