No offense, but this is truly one of the most boring spaces I have seen portrayed, and somehow, I cannot see any exhibit taking away from that.
C'mon, I can understand minimalism, but this?

This looks to be the back room only, where the Art Metropole show is now (Dec 08). Kind of misleading considering how much larger the main space is...

Yes. It is the back room only. For a look at the bigger gallery space check this post out:

The space may seem boring to some but to me it represents a simplicity that rests the mind so that you can immerse yourself in the art and images being presented. It requires one to pause longer and really let your mind escape to consider the possibilities. Cheers!

Hi Debra, Simplicity is good for sure, but this space is too small for a museum...one needs to have some sort of international standard. Immersion in a work of art is not codependent on simplicity of the space, but the kind of work exhibited, produced and also the personal interest of the viewer. I feel there is no point in being defencive- MOCCA is very very small and should not be labeled a museum. For a gallery space it is ok. Occassionally they do put up some very interesting shows and the staff are rather nice, friendly and helpful.
