Featured artists include historical figures like Ad Reinhardt, Arshile Gorky, Franz Kline, Diane Arbus, Alberto Giacometti, Morris Louis, Mark Rothko, Garry Winogrand, Barnett Newman, Andy Warhol, Willem de Kooning and Piet Mondrian; contemporary Los Angeles artists like Doug Aitken, John Baldessari, Chris Burden, Vija Celmins, Mike Kelley, Catherine Opie, Nancy Rubins, Paul McCarthy, Lari Pittman, Diana Thater, James Welling, Laura Owens, Bill Owens, Charles Ray, Raymond Pettibon, Jason Rhoades and Edward Ruscha; New York artists like Vito Acconci, Robert Gober, Nan Goldin, Brice Marden, David Salle, Claes Oldenburg, Julian Schnabel, Cady Noland, Richard Prince, Kara Walker, Robert Rauschenberg, Cindy Sherman and Kiki Smith; and international artists like Francis Als, Maurizio Cattelan, Thomas Demand, Rineke Dijkstra, Peter Doig, Marlene Dumas, Olafur Eliasson, Rodney Graham, Andreas Gursky, Mona Hatoum, William Kentridge, Anselm Kiefer, Chris Ofili, Gabriel Orozco, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Rirkrit Tiravanija. The title This Is Not To Be Looked At is derived from a work in the collection by John Baldessari, dated 1966-68, which reproduces an Artforum cover that features a Frank Stella painting also owned by MOCA, titled "Union III" from the Irregular Polygon series (1966).
