‘Being Modern’ features an array of important artworks that MoMA has acquired since its founding in 1929. The exhibition includes 200 pieces, dating from the early days of modern art through movements and styles such as American abstraction, Pop art and Minimalism. The exhibition responds to two objectives: to show a significant body of the museum’s great collection in Paris, and to evoke the more fluid and interdisciplinary installations that visitors to MoMA will encounter following its expansion and renovation project. Some of the works will be shown in France for the first time, including: Andy Warhol’s Campbell’s Soup Cans (1962); Philip Guston’s Tomb (1978); Untitled (You Invest in the Divinity of the Masterpiece) by Barbara Kruger (1982); and Patchwork Quilt by Romare Bearden (1970).
