Established March 27, 2020, The Museum of Contemporary Art Kittengale (MoCAK) is a virtual
art space in the video game Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Programming is facilitated by
Julia Maiuri and Joolz, her avatar within the game. Working on this platform, Maiuri pushes
the limitations of the game to curate weekly fantasy exhibitions by real-life artists.
