    Trading Places, Part 1:
    Selected Works from the Collection of MOCA GA at the High

    September 3 – February 5, 2012

    The High has partnered with The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA) to host an exhibition highlighting selected paintings and drawings from the permanent collection of MOCA GA. This exhibition will comprise approximately 40 paintings and drawing by Georgia artists, all from the collection of MOCA GA. Featured artists will include Larry Jens Anderson, Don Cooper, Herbert Creecy, Kojo Griffin, Medford Johnston, Katherine Mitchell, Larry Walker and Rocio Rodriguez. This exhibition continues the collaboration between the High and MOCA GA that began with a transfer of 21 works of art by Georgia artists from the High's collection to MOCA GA in September 2010.

    Exhibition Organization and Support
    This exhibition is organized by the High Museum of Art and The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia. The exhibition is curated by Annette Cone-Skelton, director of MOCA GA, and Michael Rooks, the High's Wieland Family Curator of Modern and Contemporary Art.

    The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia
    MOCA GA was founded in 2000 out of recognition of the relative void in opportunities across Georgia to learn about and view contemporary art, and specifically contemporary art from Georgia artists. The museum opened its doors to the public in February 2002. The mission of MOCA GA is to collect and archive significant contemporary works by artists from the state of Georgia. To place our artists in a global context, the museum's exhibitions include artists from around the world in addition to Georgia artists. The museum's programs promote the visual arts by creating a forum for active exchange between artists and the community. MOCA GA fulfills its mission through an active exhibition schedule, a growing permanent collection and the Education/Resource Center, which houses the museum's historical archive collection. Since its opening MOCA GA has presented 72 solo and group exhibitions focused on excellence of work, explorations of media and issues in contemporary society.
