It was one year ago tomorrow that we launched the latest redesign of MoMA.org. (March 6 is a day that will be forever ingrained in the Digital Media team’s memory!) But MoMA has had an online presence for fifteen years now, since 1995, when an exhibition site for the design show Mutant Materials in Contemporary Design was developed. The following year, the Museum’s website, MoMA.org, officially launched, and we’ve been doing exhibition feature sites ever since (including our most recent one for William Kentridge: Five Themes).
Talk about a blast from the past. Here’s a look at MoMA.org through the ages:
In addition to the obvious design changes and major technical overhauls over the last fifteen years, so much of the nature of what we do online has changed. The site has become a destination in its own right, filled with audio and video content, interactive exhibition features, and material for different audiences, from kids to the elderly. As we move into year two of this edition of the site, we want to know what you would like to see on the site—so let us know!
Happy Birthday, MoMA.org!
