Located in a red building designed by the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki and opened in 1986, at 250 South Grand Avenue, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles houses one of the most famous artistic collections in the country. Its paintings, sculptures and photographs, which cover the ‘40s to the present day, are some of the best examples of abstract expressionism, pop art, minimalism and post-minimalism. The artists represented here include Piet Mondrian, Roy Lichtenstein, Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock. The museum also has two other sites. The first, at 152 North Central Avenue, brings together some contributions to conceptualism, as well as several other works by Californian artists or those who have lived and worked in this area of America. For its part, the Moca Pacific Design Center, located at 8687 Melrose Avenue, stands out for its collection of photographs and some other quite remarkable contemporary works. The three Moca buildings are open from Monday to Friday from 11.00 am to 5.00 pm (with free entry on Thursdays) and on Saturdays and Sundays from 11.00 am to 6.00 pm.
