ModernStarts: Things

November 18, 1999–March 14, 2000 The Museum of Modern Art

ModernStarts: Things will explore the presentation and representation of ordinary objects, including still-life paintings, collages, constructed sculptures, prints, posters, furniture and design objects, and architectural fragments, in often unexpected juxtapositions. The transformation of changing pictorial conventions and notions of artistic originality in the early modern period underlie the various themes of this exhibition.
