The second cycle of MoMA2000 exhibitions focuses on the years between 1920 and 1960, a period of social and political turmoil and spirited debate. As original visions of modern art matured, they simultaneously provoked dissenting reactions and spawned parallel experiments in a variety of mediums. Faced with competing opportunities and imperatives, artists were obliged to make choices. To emphasize the contentions and vital complexities of modern art’s middle years, Making Choices juxtaposes 24 distinct exhibitions, which vary widely in scale, principle of selection, and style of display.
