Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit
The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD) presents exhibitions and programs that explore the best of contemporary art, connecting Detroit and the global art world. MOCAD focused on art as a means to nurture social change and human understanding, reflecting our community. We encourage innovative experimentation by artists, musicians, makers, cultural producers, and scholars to enrich all who participate and to educate visitors of all ages in the power of art. Whether from Detroit or worldwide, we welcome creative voices who can guide us to an equitable and inclusive future. We believe that art can change us, and it’s our responsibility to hold a space where challenge, acceptance, hope, and beauty can coincide.
About Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit
Opened in 2006 as a Kunsthalle, or a non-collecting “art hall” for new and experimental artists, MOCAD proudly functions as a hub for exploring emerging ideas in the contemporary arts and presenting art at the forefront of contemporary culture. In addition to visual art, the Museum is dedicated to presenting music, literature, and film made by local, national, and international artists and examining critical theory and the built environment. The Museum remains responsive to the cultural content of our time, fueling crucial dialogue, collaboration, and public engagement. Admission to the Museum is donation-based, and public programs are free or low cost, ensuring that MOCAD remains accessible to all.
