The Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection is widely acknowledged as one of the greatest collections of modern art in the world. Since the Museum’s founding in 1929, this collection has grown to number over thirty-five hundred objects, of which only a fraction can be displayed at any one time. The inaugural installation of the collection at MoMA QNS presents more than seventy-five of the Museum’s most iconic and best-loved works along with works by more contemporary American and European artists. Highlights of the exhibition include Pablo Picasso’s Night Fishing at Antibes (1939), Piet Mondrian’s Broadway Boogie Woogie (1942–43), and Roy Lichtenstein’s Interior with Mobile (1992).
Organized by Kynaston McShine, Chief Curator at Large, Department of Painting and Sculpture.
