  • Floor 1, Education and Research Center

To coincide with the launch of the Museum’s ambitious publication Dada in the Collection of The Museum of Modern Art, the ninth volume of MoMA’s Studies in Modern Art series, this exhibition provides an overview of the Museum’s long and rich history of collecting, documenting, interpreting, and exhibiting works of the Dada era. This display of original documents, letters, floor plans, installation photographs, and oral history commentary highlights landmark exhibitions at MoMA; addresses significant Dada acquisitions, key donors, and innovative film programs and scholarship at the Museum throughout the years; and documents the evolution of the installation of Dada works in the Museum’s collection.

Organized by Michelle Elligott, Museum Archivist.
