About the Museum

Exterior view of the Museum of Contemporary Art in Taipei.

The Museum of Contemporary Art Taipei (MOCA Taipei), opened in 2001, brings Taiwanese and international art to local and foreign audiences. It promotes cross-disciplinary forms of exhibition and performance and holds exhibitions on various forms of contemporary media, including photography, architecture, video installations, and graphic design.

MOCA is housed in a red brick building that dates to the colonial period and which formerly served as Jian Cheng Elementary School, a school for Japanese children, and then as Taipei City Hall until 1994. In 1996, the building was designated a Municipal Heritage Site and renovations for MOCA began. The museum is run by the Taipei Culture Foundation and supervised by the city government.
