A Dynamic Collection
Highlights

Ongoing

The Museum of Modern Art

The Fall Reveal 2021, which opens on October 30, features more than 350 newly installed works of art, across 13 galleries. This new presentation, which was conceived by cross-departmental teams of curators at all levels of seniority, continues a year of constant renewal across all three collection floors, introducing audiences to new artists, works, and galleries during the spring and summer of 2021.

The new MoMA opened on October 21, 2019, with a reimagined approach to its presentation of modern and contemporary art. This new collection model highlights the creative affinities and frictions produced by displaying painting, sculpture, architecture, design, photography, media, performance, film, and works on paper together. The majority of MoMA’s approximately sixty collection galleries now feature works from two or more of the Museum’s curatorial departments, proceeding along a broadly chronological spine throughout the fifth-, fourth-, and second floors. A selection of medium-specific galleries within each circuit delves into art and ideas that only MoMA’s extraordinary collection can present.

Leadership contributions to the Annual Exhibition Fund, in support of the Museum’s collection and collection exhibitions, are generously provided by Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III, Jerry I. Speyer and Katherine G. Farley, the Sandra and Tony Tamer Exhibition Fund, The Contemporary Arts Council, the Kate W.
