New Order: Art and Technology in the Twenty-First Century

March 17 – June 15, 2019

The Museum of Modern Art

Second-floor Collection Galleries

The Museum of Modern Art announces New Order: Art and Technology in the Twenty-First Century, on view from March 17 through June 23, 2019. Drawn entirely from MoMA’s collection, the exhibition includes works made since the turn of the millennium that push the boundaries of technology: upending systems, twisting materials, and inventing novel techniques and forms. The exhibition explores the ways in which technological processes are still stubbornly tied to the physical world—mired in matter, friction, and breakdown.

New Order: Art and Technology in the Twenty-First Century is organized by Michelle Kuo, The Marlene Hess Curator of Painting and Sculpture.

The exhibition is supported by the Annual Exhibition Fund with major contributions from the Estate of Ralph L. Riehle, Alice and Tom Tisch, Mimi and Peter Haas Fund, Brett and Daniel Sundheim, Karen and Gary Winnick, The Marella and Giovanni Agnelli Fund for Exhibitions, and Oya and Bülent Eczacıbaşı.
