CONTEMPORARY GALLERIES: 1980–NOW
17 November, 2011 – Ongoing
Continuing the historical sequence found on MoMA’s fifth (1880–1940) and fourth (1940–1980) floors, the galleries on the second floor present art of the early 1980s through the present moment, interweaving works in all mediums. Individual galleries focus on particular topics, ranging from specific locales that nourished influential groups of artists to key strategies shared by diverse practitioners of the same generation. Others display a single significant installation or artist’s project. Like the fifth- and fourth-floor galleries, the second-floor galleries will be periodically reinstalled to reflect the depth and richness of the Museum’s collection, and to allow for varying approaches to the wide variety of art produced during the last 30 years. Featured artists include Ashley Bickerton, Felix Gonzalez-Torres, Keith Haring, Martin Kippenberger, Steve McQueen, Senga Nengudi, Doris Salcedo, Rirkrit Tiravanija, and Rosemarie Trockel.
