The Museum of Modern Art

A new MoMA

This October, we’ll open a new MoMA. Stunning new galleries and spaces for performance and events will transform the Museum. Along with these physical changes, we’ll be showing our collection in new and unprecedented ways to bring more voices and perspectives to our galleries. Every visit will be an opportunity to discover something new and to connect to art and ideas that spark curiosity, debate, and inspiration.

Members will experience this transformation first. And with theMoMA90 membership—created to celebrate our 90th anniversary and historic expansion—you’ll receive exclusive benefits to see and share the new MoMA with friends and family.

Join today to be part of this new moment

Together, we’ll explore the ideas that shape our
culture and find inspiration in the art of our time.

Our evolution

The Museum of Modern Art is a laboratory; in its
experiments, the public is invited to participate.

Alfred H. Barr Jr., Art in Our Time, 1939

From our founding in 1929 to the current reimagination of the Museum, MoMA has grown from a bold experiment to New York’s destination for modern and contemporary art. Working with architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, in collaboration with Gensler, our continued evolution ensures that we always present the most innovative art and meet the changing needs of today’s audiences.

The real value of this expansion is not more space, but space
that allows us to rethink the experience of art in the Museum

Glenn D. Lowry, Director

In our fifth-, fourth-, and second-floor galleries, including the new David Geffen Wing, you’ll be able to explore the many stories and perspectives that only MoMA’s collection can offer. Contemporary art will join early masterpieces, and we’ll mix mediums—from painting to performance—and ideas. We’ll highlight work by artists from more diverse backgrounds and geographies than ever before, and we’ll change our galleries seasonally so you’ll always find the most resonant and innovative art.

You’ll also see this new approach in our opening exhibitions. For example, Sur moderno: Journeys of Abstraction—The Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Gift celebrates modern Latin American art, whilemember: Pope.L, 1978–2001 explores career-defining performances by multidisciplinary artist Pope.L, and Betye Saar: The Legends ofBlack Girl’s Window reveals the themes of family, history, mysticism, and life cycles at the heart of Saar’s work. All are anchored by works that are new to the collection and bring important voices to our galleries.

We’ll announce our full opening programs and exhibitions later in 2019.

Performance in the heart of the galleries

The state-of-the-art Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Studio will bring live, experimental programming to the heart of our collection galleries. Here, performance, dance, music, and sound works will connect to the stories of modern and contemporary art in the surrounding galleries.

The sound installation Rainforest V (Variation 1) and performanceForest Speech by David Tudor and Composers Inside Electronics will inaugurate the space. The Studio will also present new commissions by both established and emerging artists, such as Okwui Okpokwasili, Adam Linder, and Shahryar Nashat.

Sparking creativity and conversation

We offer experiences where engagement with art and artists
can be a catalyst for new ideas, creativity, and inspiration.

The Paula and James Crown Platform, our new space on the second floor, will be an experimental, creative space to explore ideas, questions, and art processes that arise from MoMA’s collection. You’ll be able to drop in anytime to participate in lively conversations, engage with artists, make art, reflect and relax, and find suggestions for exploring the Museum.

A reimagined experience

Through this expansion, we’ll offer you more ways to explore the Museum, from quietly contemplating a single work of art, to watching live rehearsals in the Studio, to meeting friends for art making, conversation, or dining. We’re making changes big and small to ensure you always feel welcome and inspired. Along with reconfigured entrances and a light-filled lobby, our ground floor spaces will be free and open to all, with the beloved Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, new street-level galleries, and a completely redesigned Museum Store.

To offer more chances to enjoy the new MoMA on your schedule, we’ll open earlier to the public every day, at 10:00 a.m., and offer extended hours and programming on the first Thursday of every month, until 9:00 p.m.

An invitation for artists

We’ll continue to champion the role of artists to ask important questions and spark inspiration. We’ll introduce emerging artists through our Projects series, New Photography biennial, and New Directors/New Films festival, and open our collection to artists through Artist’s Choice exhibitions. We’ll commission new work throughout the Museum, and will invite New York’s global community of artists and creative thinkers to join in conversation through public programs and events.

Collaborations across the city

With two New York locations—midtown Manhattan, and Long Island City, Queens—and partnerships throughout the five boroughs, MoMA and MoMA PS1 are part of a creative network across the city. When the Museum opens in October our commitment to this community will be stronger than ever.

We’ll launch an exciting multi-year partnership with The Studio Museum in Harlem with an inaugural installation featuring artist Michael Armitage, curated by Studio Museum director and chief curator Thelma Golden, in the new Sue and Edgar Wachenheim III Projects Gallery. This collaboration also includes exhibitions by the The Studio Museum’s artists-in-residence at MoMA PS1.

As we get ready

Staff will be working hard to make the Museum an even more inviting and inspiring place—from curatorial planning, to visitor experience training, to the meticulous care and conservation of every work that will be on display. To begin the exciting process of installation and to prepare for the opening of the new MoMA, our last day of public admission will be June 15, and we’ll host a special day for members on June 16 to celebrate this historic moment in MoMA’s evolution and future.

Until then, we hope you’ll join us for our exciting spring season, and visit MoMA PS1, which will remain open on its regular schedule throughout 2019.

We can’t wait to share this major transformation with you.

Be part of MoMA, join us today
