April 22nd Lexing Zhang nominated as a trustee of MOCA North Miami marketing committee

We are pleased to announce that ART LEXING's founder and director Lexing Zhang has just been nominated as a trustee of MOCA (Museum of Contemporary Art) North Miami's marketing committee, a brain trust of progressive professionals, artists, members, marketers, community leaders and the like who meet periodically to address opportunities for MOCA. 

The commitment would be for one season (June 2011 - June 2012) 


Known as the museum “where new art is discovered,” MOCA is internationally recognized as a force in defining new trends and directions in contemporary art. The museum originates most of its own exhibitions, presenting an exciting mix of both emerging and legendary artists. Visitors from around the world are drawn to its permanent collection reflecting the most important developments in contemporary art.

MOCA presents a continuous calendar of lectures by renowned artists and critics, film screenings, concerts, and cutting edge performances. It has attracted nationwide attention for highly original education and outreach programs that make contemporary art accessible, understandable, and enjoyable to people of all ages.

MOCA members enjoy special entrée to the art world in Miami and beyond. Through enrichment programs, cultural travel and social events, members are provided dynamic opportunities to enhance their understanding of contemporary art and develop relationships with collectors and art enthusiasts from around the world.
In April 2007, MOCA unveiled architectural plans for the expansion and renovation of its current facility.  The expansion's concept plan was designed by Charles Gwathmey. The expansion will triple MOCA's current exhibition space and offer the public ongoing access to its permanent collection.  The 27,000 square-foot expansion (20,000 square feet of new and 4,000 square feet of remodeled space) of MOCA's current 23,000 square foot facility will also include such features as an education wing, expanded space to present concurrent exhibitions and public programs, new art storage facility and enhanced public areas.

MOCA’s permanent collection reflects significant artistic developments in contemporary art by emerging and established artists from the U.S. and abroad. John Baldessari, Dan Flavin, Dennis Oppenheim, Alex Katz, Nam June Pak, Uta Barth, Teresita Fernandez, Gary Simmons, Jose Bedia, Anna Gaskel, Mariko Mori, John Bock, Trenton Doyle Hancock, Pierre Huyghe, Philippe Parreno, Edward Kienholz, Raymond Pettibon, and Matthew Ritchie are among the artists whose works are included in the collection.
