The Museum of Contemporary Art, London organises exhibitions in its Project Space in South London and elsewhere. Its director is Michael Petry.

History[edit]

MOCA London was founded in 1994 as a project based museum. No formal built space was to be required to mount a series of international exhibitions that incorporated sculpture, video, painting, photography and installation. Projects were curated for virtual and specific sites.

In January 2004, MOCA opened a project space at 113 Bellenden Road in Peckham Rye to initiate a series of exhibitions that were locally based but global in focus. The Project Space exists to offer established and upcoming artists the possibility of making non-commercial work, developing the projects over various periods of time to suit both the artist and MOCA. Projects emerge when they are ready. This co-operative style of working means that the Project Space has no formal exhibition structure, and works are in situ when they are ready. A new Platform Space for younger artists is in the final design stages.[1]
