New Jersey Museum of Contemporary Art (NJMoCA) is a new cultural non-profit dedicated to identifying and presenting artistic expression of the highest merit from multidisciplinary fields of contemporary culture, embracing an international curatorial scope and an emphasis on emerging and underrepresented artists.
NJMoCA will present innovative site-specific art exhibitions, events, and performances in underutilized and abandoned spaces across New Jersey in conjunction with programming at a permanent facility, currently being scouted. This adventurous platform will allow NJMoCA to be fluid, enterprising, and responsive on the forefront of new ideas and experimentation in artistic production; transform and redefine the concept of a museum; and situate it at the center of the international art dialogue in the 21st Century.
NJMoCA's inaugural exhibition, It's All American, brought together 37 local and international artists whose work explored the artistic and folk traditions that characterize Americana. The museum showcased a diverse and distinctive group of artists including Rita Ackermann, David Adamo, Polly Apfelbaum, Peter Coffin, Martin Creed, Francesca DiMattio, Keltie Ferris, Van Hanos, Jessica Houston, Ryan Kitson, Ryan McGinley, Robert Melee, Rob Pruitt, Les Rogers, Sterling Ruby, and Aurel Schmidt.
Kevin McGarry of Artforum observed, "Inside, I spotted neither Snooki nor Teresa Guidice, but to the credit of everyone involved with the museum the New York art scene turned out in healthy numbers.â€
"It's like Dia:Beacon,â€ remarked Printed Matter's director, Catherine Krudy.
The New York Times Style Magazine declared, "It's perhaps the biggest thing to hit New Jersey since the Situation. At least as far as the art world is concerned.â€
