Staff Picks Searching for Utopia

August 1–October 9, 2018 The Museum of Modern Art

Our galleries currently host Bodys Isek Kingelez: City Dreams and Toward a Concrete Utopia: Architecture in Yugoslavia, 1948–1980. These two exhibitions present distinct ideas of what utopia looks like. Inspired by the colorful and exuberant maquettes of Kingelez and the bold sculptural vision of Yugoslavian architects and designers, MoMA staff members sought out other visions of utopia in the Museum’s expansive collection. The works presented here—from lush landscapes to abstract sculpture to inventive architectural designs—showcase the many different ways art can embody and challenge our ideas of the world we want to live in.
