Re-Thinking Modern Art: A Preview of the Museum’s New Collection Galleries
At the Museum of Modern Art’s founding in 1929, its director Alfred H. Barr, Jr. envisioned it as a laboratory: a site of interdisciplinary connection and curatorial experimentation. Looking to Barr and to the museum’s evolution in the ninety years since then, MoMA will open its newly-expanded campus in 2019, increasing not only its gallery spaces but also the creative potential within them. Taking into consideration today’s immense pool of knowledge on art and artists worldwide, how do we continue to build and present a contemporary collection of modern art?
Ann Temkin is an American art curator, currently the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
