Joseph Kosuth in A Walk on the Wild Side: 70's New York in the Norman E. Fisher Collection

Comprised of nearly 700 objects in all media, The Norman Fisher Collection is one of MOCA's most significant holdings. It was donated to the museum in 1979 by the family of Jacksonville native Norman E. Fisher, who became immersed in the New York cultural scene in the 1970s, befriending many of the luminaries of the time.

The collection offers an expansive view of late-20th-century American culture; a moment of radical creative experimentation across the visual, literary, and performing arts. It was a time when artists broke down the barriers between different art forms, and collaborated with each other in newfound and innovative ways.
