MoMA’s Fall Reveal Transform 13 Galleries across 3 Collection Floors on October 30, 2021

“The Museum of Modern Art presents another dynamic transformation of its collection galleries through Fall Reveal, opening on October 30, 2021. Conceived by cross-departmental teams of curators at all levels of seniority, the Fall Reveal features more than 350 newly installed works of art across 13 galleries. This new presentation 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 Museum curatorial staff continues to break new ground as it explores the relationships among works of art displayed in dynamic and new contexts.

The new MoMA opened on October 21, 2019, with a collection model that highlights the creative affinities and frictions produced by displaying painting, sculpture, architecture, design, photography, media, performance, film, and works on paper together. Recognizing that there is no single or complete history of modern and contemporary art, the Museum offers a deeper experience of art through all mediums and by artists from more diverse geographies and backgrounds than ever before. The curators have emphasized new voices, new acquisitions, and new perspectives on well-known works that have been in the collection for decades. The Museum continues to prioritize the collection display in its expanded spaces and honors its commitment to share with the public a greater variety of its vast holdings on a seasonally rotating basis.” — MoMA
