A New MOMA

It’s a favourite destination whenever we are lucky enough to be in New York. And why not? MOMA has a staggering permanent collection of contemporary and modern art.

Vincent Van Gogh. Starry Night. 1889

Paul Gauguin. The Seed of the Areoi. 1892

Henri Matisse. The Dance (First Version). 1909

Henri Rousseau. The Dream. 1910

Giorgio de Chirico. Love Song. 1914

And more, and more. Founded in 1929, MOMA is a modern art lover’s paradise. The museum has been closed for extensive renovations led by architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro along with Gensler.

This expansion adds more than 40,000 square feet of gallery space. It is designed to offer visitors  ‘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. Our ground floor spaces will be free and open to all, with the Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, new street-level galleries, and a completely redesigned Museum Store.’

MOMA is scheduled to re-open on October 21, 2019. The new exhibits will include Sur moderno: Journeys of Abstraction—The Patricia Phelps de Cisneros Gift, celebrating modern Latin American Art, along with ‘watershed installations by living artists from the past twenty years in Surrounds to explorations of artists Donald Judd, Dorothea Lange, Pope.L, and Betye Saar.’
