Arranged in a loosely chronological order, each of the 23 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 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, Arièle Dionne-Krosnick, Michelle Elligott, Starr Figura, Lucy Gallun, Andrew Gardner, Lily Goldberg, Jennifer Harris, Jodi Hauptman, Danielle Johnson, Inés Katzenstein, Juliet Kinchin, Evangelos Kotsioris, Michelle Kuo, Thomas Lax, Cara Manes, Sarah Meister, Roxana Marcoci, Erica Papernik-Shimizu, Paulina Pobocha, Christian Rattemeyer, Yasmil Raymond, Hillary Reder, Rajendra Roy, Magnus Schaefer, Brittany Shaw, Martino Stierli, Sarah Suzuki, Phil Taylor, Ann Temkin, Jennifer Tobias, Ana Torok, and Anne Umland.
