Museum of Contemporary Art, Shanghai (MoCA Shanghai) was founded in 2005 as the first private contemporary art museum in China. Housed in the heart of Shanghai in People’s Park, our vision from the beginning has been to “gather together excellent artwork from around the world,” and to provide a platform for showcasing Chinese and international contemporary artists.
