The Miami Herald reports that MoCA has moved out of its North Miami building:
The new Institute of Contemporary Art will open a temporary facility in November at the Moore Building in Miami’s Design District, according to a statement from co-chairs Irma Braman and Ray Ellen Yarkin.
Still unclear: What art will be shown at the new site in Miami’s Design District. MOCA’s roughly 600-piece collection remains in storage, the subject of ongoing negotiations between the board and city.
The two sides have been working toward a settlement since attending mediation sessions in mid-June. Questions remain about how MOCA’s well-regarded permanent collection will be split and whether the “Museum of Contemporary Art” name can still be used by either institution.
The museum’s board filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the city in April, claiming its municipal landlord was failing to properly maintain the facility, provide adequate security or even pay the interim director.
