The Museum of Contemporary Art of Georgia (MOCA GA) is thrilled to present the 4th installment of the biennial exhibition Gathered IV: Georgia Artists Selecting Georgia Artists. Esteemed jurors Kevin Cole, Mario Petrirena, and Lisa Tuttle are committed to offering not only the breadth of talent across the state of Georgia, but also the depth.

The MOCA GA mission is fully realized within this project as artists are involved in all phases of the exhibition, including selection and review.
