The MCA began as a kunsthalle, a noncollecting museum dedicated to producing rotating exhibitions. In keeping with this origin, the museum has no permanent collection galleries; works from our collection often appear in special exhibitions. This section keeps visitors up-to-date on which collection works are currently on view. Ask a Visitor Services associate (wearing a "HI" pin) about where to find them in the museum.
Short Three yellow sculptures of abstract human figures stand as if communicating with each other outdoors in an urban setting.
Long Three yellow and white forms are installed on an outdoor terrace. The forms resemble human bodies, yet they have no faces. The heads of the forms are created from coiled, hard textured material and the bodies are similarly constructed of coiled material, arranged into torsos, arms and legs. The scale of the figures is about double the size of an average person and the are arranged about a half of a figure length apart from each other. The figure on the left appears to have its head tilted to the sky, while the center figure faces to the right, where the third figure bends lightly towards the ground, hand upraised. The bright color of the figures contrasts with urban scene in the background: behind the figures a black fence, green leafy trees and tall gray buildings are visible. The sky is bright blue and the bright light of mid-day casts sharp shadows below the figures.

Short A stainless-steel sculpture of a rabbit holding a carrot has been polished to a high sheen so that a large gallery is reflected across its surface. The rabbit's shape and proportions are reminiscent of those of an inflatable toy.
Short A collage of real estate listings from old newspapers forms the crude shape of a simple house. The news clippings, which are black ink on manilla paper, are combined in a way that the lines of text form complex stochastic patterns. In the center of the collage is the word: HOMELESSNESS in white letters.
Short A primarily beige-looking canvas is actually composed of many small dots of light blues, pinks, oranges, and purples.
Short A grainy image of an outstretched person is seen in profile against a blue background and covered with numbered black arrows and dots in a seemingly random arrangement.
