Arranged in loosely chronological order, each of the 16 galleries on this floor explores an individual topic. A gallery may be devoted to an artist, a specific medium or discipline, a particular place in a moment in time, or a shared creative idea. These presentations are conceived by teams of curators from all fields and at all levels of seniority collaborating closely to share expertise and viewpoints. An ongoing program of frequent reinstallation will feature a wide range of artworks in new combinations—a reminder that countless ideas and histories can be explored through the Museum’s rich collection.
The collection gallery presentation on floors 2, 4, and 5 is organized by Beverly Adams, Esther Adler, Sean Anderson, Quentin Bajac, Charlotte Barat, Barry Bergdoll, Klaus Biesenbach, Giampaolo Bianconi, Anna Blaha, Charmaine Branch, River Bullock, Jane Cavalier, Sophie Cavoulacos, Christophe Cherix, Stuart Comer, Emily Cushman, Arièle Dionne-Krosnick, Michelle Elligott, Starr Figura, Samantha Friedman, Paul Galloway, Lucy Gallun, Andrew Gardner, Lily Goldberg, Jennifer Harris, Jon Hendricks, Jodi Hauptman, Danielle Johnson, Anna Kats, Inés Katzenstein, Juliet Kinchin, Evangelos Kotsioris, Michelle Kuo, Thomas Lax, Tasha Lutek, Cara Manes, Roxana Marcoci, Sarah Meister, Lydia Mullin, Smooth Nzewi, Heidi Hirschl Orley, Dana Ostrander, Erica Papernik-Shimizu, Paulina Pobocha, Christian Rattemeyer, Yasmil Raymond, Hillary Reder, Rajendra Roy, Magnus Schaefer, Brittany Shaw, Martino Stierli, Sarah Suzuki, Lanka Tattersall, Phil Taylor, Ann Temkin, Jennifer Tobias, Ana Torok, Madeline Murphy Turner, and Anne Umland.
