It is the place where Frida Kahlo held her first exhibition in America and the museum where Jeff Koons held his first ever solo exhibition. Commonly known as the MOCA, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago was established in 1967 and is the largest museum in the world dedicated to contemporary art. Designed by German architect Josef Paul Kleihues, the 20,000 m2, four-level museum showcases over 6,000 contemporary art works from the surrealism, pop art, minimalism and postmodern movements. Home to artists such as Andy Warhol, Cindy Sherman, Alexander Calder and Jasper Johns, the MOCA also offers an in-house restaurant, a 300-person auditorium hosting dance, theater and music performances, a bookshop and a landscaped garden with panoramic views of Lake Michigan.
