Structures for Life

MoMA PS1 will present the first New York museum exhibition of the work of visionary feminist and activist artist Niki de Saint Phalle (American and French, 1930‒2002). The exhibition will feature over 100 works created from the 1970s until the artist’s death, including sculptures, prints, drawings, jewelry, and archival material. Highlighting Saint Phalle’s interdisciplinary approach and engagement with key social and political issues, the exhibition will focus on works that she created to transform environments, individuals, and society.

Generous funding is provided by Lise Stolt-Nielsen, The Keith Haring Foundation, The Deborah Buck Foundation, and the Blue Rider Group at Morgan Stanley.
