Museum of Modern Art

New York

21 Oct 2019

With its 40,000-square-foot expansion, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro, the new MoMA will feature a full reinstallation of its permanent collection, mingling works of different mediums and including artists from an increased diversity of backgrounds in its chronology of modern art. A new studio for performance, moving image and sound works will open amid the collection galleries, with residencies by artists including Okwui Okpokwasili. Inaugural exhibitions include a display of Latin American abstraction from the Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Gift, a retrospective of Betye Saar’s work, and an installation of paintings by Michael Armitage in the new Projects Gallery on the museum’s ground floor – the first instalment of a collaboration with the Studio Museum in Harlem (which remains closed in preparation for its move to a new building). Find out more from MoMA’s website.
