December at MoMA

Glenn_lowry_2005Dear Friends:

As we look back on 2014 and the array of exhibitions presented this year—from large-scale retrospectives of Sigmar Polke, Robert Gober, Lygia Clark, Sturtevant, and Christopher Williams; to revelatory, focused presentations of Paul Gauguin’s printmaking and Henri Matisse’s cut-outs; to exhibitions that address contemporary issues, such as Uneven Growth—we hope that you were able to join us for these and so many of the other incredible experiences that can only happen at MoMA and that are made possible with your support.

This month, opening on December 13, Modern Photographs from the Thomas Walther Collection, 1909–1949 presents more than 300 photographs acquired by MoMA from Thomas Walther’s unparalleled private holdings, highlighting a pivotal period in the history of the medium. The Forever Now: Contemporary Painting in an Atemporal World, which opens on December 14, presents paintings by 17 artists working today that reflect the most contemporary of conditions—timelessness. And in the theaters we’re excited to present a comprehensive retrospective of the four-decades-long career of the iconoclastic American director Robert Altman.

Thank you so much for being a part of the MoMA family, and best wishes for a happy and healthy new year!

Glenn D. Lowry
