MoMA PS1 jobs
MoMA PS1 is devoted to today’s most experimental, thought-provoking contemporary art. Founded in 1971 as P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, it is the first nonprofit arts center in the US devoted solely to contemporary art. Recognized as a defining force in the alternative space movement, MoMA PS1 stands out from other major arts institutions through its distinctive approach to exhibitions and direct involvement of artists. In 2000 The Museum of Modern Art and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center merged, creating the largest platform for contemporary art in the US—and one of the largest in the world. Ten years later P.S.1 was renamed MoMA PS1 to better reflect its relationship with The Museum of Modern Art. Functioning as a living, active meeting place for the general public, MoMA PS1 is a catalyst for ideas, discourses, and new trends in contemporary art.
