Inside CoCA


The Centre of Contemporary Art Toi Moroki (CoCA) is a leading art gallery in Ōtautahi Christchurch, governed by the Canterbury Society of Arts Charitable Trust, and chartered with the objective to foster people’s connection and appreciation for the art of our time. CoCA presents a dynamic programme of exhibitions offering an expansive view of contemporary art and diverse cultural perspectives, supported by compelling, participatory arts experiences, within our gallery, across the community, and beyond.

Our curatorial strategy is underpinned by the fundamental principles of inclusion, innovation and integrity. We aim to present a rich view of the visual arts across all disciplines, representing artists at all career stages, and presenting diverse voices reflective of the place and time we live in.
