The fifth in a series of installations focusing on MoMA’s contemporary holdings, Here Is Every. Four Decades of Contemporary Art maps a chronological path through the art of the recent past. The exhibition brings together photographs, paintings, sculptures, drawings, films, and videos in thematic groupings, and includes several new acquisitions, on view for the first time at MoMA, by such artists as Matthew Barney, Mircea Cantor, Nan Goldin, Paul McCarthy, and Bruce Nauman. Explorations of topics as diverse as the artist’s studio, the changing urban landscape, politics, and the radical transformation of media culture appear repeatedly in the art of the last forty years, proving that certain artistic concerns ultimately transcend chronology.

Organized by Connie Butler, The Robert Lehman Foundation Chief Curator of Drawings.

This installation, one of a series highlighting the Museum's contemporary collection, is made possible by The Bank of New York Mellon.
