MoMA PS1, located in Long Island City, Queens, is one of the oldest and largest nonprofit contemporary art institutions in the United States. An exhibition space rather than a collecting institution, it devotes its energy and resources to displaying the most experimental art in the world. MoMA PS1 presents over 50 exhibitions each year, including artists’ retrospectives, site-specific installations, historical surveys, arts from across the United States and the world, and a full schedule of music and performance programming.

Founded in 1971 by Alanna Heiss as The Institute of Art and Urban Resources, Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to the transformation of abandoned and underutilized buildings in New York City into exhibition, performance, and studio spaces for artists, the institution was renamed P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in 1988. P.S.1 became an affiliate of MoMA in 2000, extending the reach of both institutions, combining its contemporary mission with MoMA’s strength as one of the greatest collecting museums of modern art. 2010 marked the completed merger of the two institutions and began P.S.1’s new and exciting chapter as MoMA PS1.
