―GTA IV Manual Description

The National Union of Contemporary Arts (NUCA) is an art gallery in Grand Theft Auto IV and Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, located on Dukes Boulevard in East Island City, Dukes.


It is based on the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center located in East Island City's real-life counterpart. The building is inaccessible to the player, however there is an accessible courtyard featuring several artworks by Bao and a large sculpture. NUCA is featured on

The use of P.45 is a play on the British termination-of-employment form P45, the equivalent of America's pink slip, implying that the artists have no real jobs. "Nuca" may also refer to "Nucka", a racial slur of African-Americans.



  • A flying rat is located on a wall in the courtyard.
