CITY GUIDE / NEW YORK / ARTS & CULTURE / MUSEUM OF CHINESE IN AMERICA

A new MOCA has opened in New York, but not as you know it. The Museum of Chinese in America is dedicated not to contemporary art but to preserving and presenting the history and culture of people of Chinese descent in the United States. Artist and designer Maya Lin conceived the 14,000 square-foot space in a former machine shop, which has a skylit courtyard at its center that harks back to a traditional Chinese courtyard house. Visitors mistakenly looking for new art will find something at least in its opening exhibition, “Here & Now: Chinese Artists in New York.”
