Overview of the Collection

Creator: Museum of Modern Art (New York, N.Y.)
Title: The Museum of Modern Art Exhibition Records 1929-1959
Inclusive Dates: 1929-1959
Quantity: 554.5 Linear Feet
Abstract: Records of exhibitions at The Museum of Modern Art from its beginning in 1929 through 1959 including files from the Office of the Registrar and from various curatorial departments.

Arrangement

The Museum of Modern Art Exhibition Records contain documentation from the Registrar and the various curatorial departments that existed over the decades (see the Historical Note for a full chronology of curatorial departments). The records have first been put in order by exhibition number, basically in chronological order. From its beginning in 1929, MoMA has assigned sequential numbers to most of its temporary exhibitions and many of its permanent collection rotations, and while there have been irregularities to the system over the decades the exhibition number is still a primary method for referring to a particular show. Within a set of records for one exhibition, Registrar files have been placed first followed by records from each participating curatorial department in alphabetic order. Within a set of departmental files, records are in the original order in which they were received by the Archives. Some records may have been created by other departments or the departments may have had different names or responsibilities at the time of the records' creation, but the departments listed here are those who last had physical custody of the records before they were consolidated into the Archives.


Historical Note

The Museum of Modern Art was founded in 1929 by Miss Lillie P. Bliss, Mrs. Cornelius J. Sullivan, and Mrs. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., under the directorship of Alfred H. Barr Jr.; its first exhibition opened on November 7th of that year. In its nascency the Museum's administration was so small that separate departments didn't exist as such. For instance, while the Museum certainly conducted registrarial activities from the very beginning, only in 1932 was a staff person, Alice E. Mallete, designated as Registrar. Likewise, though MoMA began its permanent collection of prints and drawings in 1929 and received its first painting in 1930, the official conception of the Department of Painting and Sculpture is of uncertain date and didn't have the position of chief curator or director until 1940. Following is a brief list of Museum curatorial departments in order of their creation, and their directors or chief curators from 1929 to the present. Specific position titles are mostly omitted as these often changed and an individual might be a curator or chief curator, acting director or director, while still always being the top-ranked position within the department.

Department of Painting and Sculpture 1929-present

The official founding date of this curatorial department as a distinct unit is uncertain; the name Department of Painting and Sculpture is first seen among Museum records around 1940.

Department Heads

Alfred H. Barr, Jr. 1929-1940 (as Director of the Museum), 1940-1943 (as Director of the Museum and Curator of the Department)

James Johnson Sweeney 1945-1946

Dorothy C. Miller 1946-1949

In 1947 the Museum reorganized the administration of the Department of Painting and Sculpture. Alfred H. Barr, Jr. was named "Director of Museum Collections" in which he was in charge of supervising all the Museum's acquisitions, personally responsible for Painting and Sculpture acquisitions and, as phrased in the announcement, responsible for the "planning, organization, care and use (including publications and display) of the Collections as a whole." Other departments were placed under Barr's supervision but remained largely independent. Dorothy C. Miller, already serving as Acting Director of Painting and Sculpture upon James Johnson Sweeney's departure, remained in that now-redefined role until 1949. Miller and the Directors who followed her during Barr's tenure are sometimes referred to as the Directors of Painting and Sculpture Exhibitions to distinguish them from Barr's role as Director of Museum Collections.

Scope and Content

This finding aid is one of several describing the Museum of Modern Art Exhibition Records which document MoMA's history from the Museum's first exhibition in 1929, Cézanne, Gauguin, Seurat, Van Gogh [MoMA Exh. #1, November 7-December 7, 1929] to the last exhibition to open in 2000, Projects 70: Janine Antoni, Shahzia Sikander, Kara Walker [MoMA Exh. #1880, November 22, 2000–March 13, 2001]. The records within this collection comprise the main exhibition documentation produced by the curatorial departments and Registrar of the Museum in the course of creating and assembling both shows of works borrowed from other institutions and permanent collection displays. In the Museum's early days exhibitions are documented predominantly by Registrar files while curatorial records are scarce. The Museum itself was a small organization, and didn't have any distinct curatorial departments until 1932 with the founding of the Department of Architecture. As the Museum grew, the quantity and frequency of curatorial records increase until they dominate the exhibition documentation.

The first file for each exhibition, if extant, is the "master checklist." This is the document the Registrar identified as the most reliable or final list of artworks in an exhibition, or was the next best available information on the show, whether a press release, memo, or other document. Many of the master checklists are actually the published exhibition catalogue though many here are annotated with loan numbers or notes as to which artworks may have at the last moment been excluded from or included in the exhibitions. Even when just single sheets of paper, master checklists were typically bound in cloth for easy reference on a bookshelf. If no documentation was available, the Registrar staff often bound a sheet of paper listing only the exhibition name, number, and opening and closing dates, to serve as a placeholder for that exhibition on the bookshelf. All of these volumes, regardless of their informational content, have been processed and described as master checklists. In the 1990s with the onset of electronic collection management systems (CMS), exhibition catalogues are still often kept as or alongside master checklists, but the checklists themselves often become simply the latest output or report from the CMS. Apart from master checklists, Registrar files typically consist of loan forms and correspondence, shipping and packing records for artwork loans and travelling exhibitions, condition surveys, insurance valuations, framing and installation documents, various checklist iterations, and internal communications and notes.

Documentation in Curatorial files frequently overlaps with Registrar files but also may include background research for the exhibition, exhibition text drafts including wall labels and other signage, catalogue essays and materials, photographs and artwork images, installation designs and floor plans and other materials. Press clippings, press releases and summaries of press coverage are common; opening and related event documents occur periodically. If an exhibition appeared at MoMA and also travelled domestically, via the Department of Circulating Exhibitions, or internationally, via the International Program, then curatorial files specifically concerning the travelling versions of the shows may be found as well.

In 2016 as an outgrowth of the Exhibition records project, MoMA established individual web pages for almost all known exhibitions in its history. Exhibition documentation from this collection and elsewhere was linked online from these pages as follows.

Master Checklist and Press Release Scans

Many "master checklists", as described above, have been scanned as PDF files, placed online, and linked from the appropriate exhibition web page. Checklists were omitted from scanning if they lacked actual checklist information, or were too cumbersome to scan, or for other reasons. In other cases, some master checklist binders and folders contained multiple documents of which only one was scanned. In all instances, any questions regarding the accuracy and context of the master checklist should be resolved by consulting the actual files.

In 2010, press releases assembled into bound volumes and spanning sixty-eight years of Museum history were scanned and placed online on the library and archives website. Only a fraction of these press releases concern exhibitions; others cover special events and openings, film programs, publications, and many other Museum activities. Some exhibitions have many relevant press release links, while others may have none. The online scans do not necessarily represent all press releases the Museum produced, and exhibition files may contain press releases different from as well as duplicating the ones online. Press releases are linked to the appropriate webpages where they directly treated the exhibition rather than surrounding activities, like the press preview or the publication of the exhibition catalogue, or mentioned the exhibition in passing, such as monthly calendar of events press releases. Press releases such as those, or others, may provide further information about the exhibition to the researcher, and may be found online, but are not directly linked from exhibition webpages.

Exhibition Installation Photography

The Museum Archives holds 18,800 installation photographs of MoMA exhibitions, dating from the Museum's founding in 1929 to 2000. These photographs, as well as digitally created images of the exhibitions since 2000, are available in a database called MAID (Museum Archives Image Database) that is publicly accessible from the archives web site. These are not comprehensive as many exhibitions were never photographed, particularly in the early years. But for each exhibition documented, the Museum approved a set of photos to serve as the official photographic representation of the exhibition. Other photographs of the exhibition may exist and duplicate images may be found in various collections. While the presence of physical installation prints or negatives are specifically noted in the folder description when present, when an official set of photos or images are available digitally on MAID, they are also directly linked to the exhibition webpages.

Exhibition Catalogues

The MoMA Library holds multiple copies of every exhibition catalogue published for a MoMA exhibition. Over one thousand of those volumes were scanned from cover to cover, in color, and placed online linked to their respective exhibition webpages. Catalogues were withheld from scanning if they were still in print or had specific copyright concerns.

A Note on Exhibition Numbers

From the first exhibition ever held by MoMA, Cézanne, Gauguin, Seurat, Van Gogh, the Museum had the foresight to assign a number to each exhibition, thus providing a simple unique identifier by which to refer to an exhibition and preventing confusion that might be caused by similar or recurring exhibition titles. But despite good intentions, the numbering system was not always perfectly implemented. Numerous exhibitions were squeezed into numerical order by adding a letter identifier such as 5a and 5b. Furthermore, some exhibitions such as permanent collection gallery reinstallations are given exhibition numbers today but were omitted from the numerical list in the Museum's early decades. Other indubitable exhibitions, such as small shows of new acquisitions or hastily assembled memorial displays, were simply overlooked in this system. So by the end of 1989, the date of the most recent exhibition records in this collection, official exhibition numbering had reached 1537. In fact, by that time there actually had been more than 1700 distinct exhibitions. Whenever documentation is discovered definitely attesting to an exhibition's existence despite an absence of a number, the Archives has inserted it into the exhibition history list in proper chronological order and assigned the show a new number with the prefix "NN".

A Note on Exhibition Names and Date Citations

The exhibition titles as listed in this finding aid have been taken verbatim from the running master exhibition list that from the earliest days of the museum was kept by the Registrar and later the Department of Exhibitions. In many cases wall text in the exhibition itself, title information on printed ephemera, or the title given in the exhibition catalogue may differ from the official title in the master exhibition list. In cases of unnumbered exhibitions not present in the master list, the Archives has used the available documentation to identify the most likely title used. Opening and closing dates shown in different sources can also conflict, especially if a show's run was extended, an opening date moved at the last minute, or if different sections of an exhibition closed at different times. The dates listed in this finding aid have been checked against numerous sources of information and should supersede conflicting information found in any other document source. However, the Archives continually updates this information as new evidence is unearthed, particularly regarding under-documented exhibitions. The proper full exhibition citation should be used whenever possible to prevent any confusion among exhibitions. The citation consists of the complete exhibition title followed, in square brackets, by the citation form of the exhibition number and date range as follows: 46 Painters and Sculptors under 35 Years of Age [MoMA Exh. #5a, April 11-April 27, 1930].

A Note on Film Programs and Exhibitions

In general, film programs and physical exhibitions of film history staged by the Department of Film are not part of this collection. Activities of the Department of Film were historically not included in the master running list of numbered MoMA exhibitions, and records of those activities have been consistently held apart from other curatorial departments and exhibition records. Please contact the Archives to consult the separate collection of Department of Film Records. However, on some occasions, and contrary to usual practice, Film Department exhibitions were given numbers in the master running list and are included in this finding aid. For those instances there may or may not be Registrar records present in this collection.


Restrictions

Access Restrictions

Museum Curatorial and Registrar exhibitions files are automatically closed to the public for fifteen years from the date of the exhibition. Following that time period the records are generally open for research after processing except for the following restricted materials: All loan forms are permanently closed to the public as are correspondence and documents relating to anonymous lenders and correspondence, forms, and other documentation directly pertaining to artwork condition. Documents that discuss or relate to an artwork's value, such as insurance checklists, are closed for twenty-five years from the date of creation. Among other records, any materials from MoMA board meetings or Trustee committee meetings are permanently closed to the public, as are occasional documents pertaining to personnel matters, donors and donations, and other sensitive issues. As necessary, restricted materials have been removed from folders and entire folders removed from the publicly accessible files though those files' descriptions remain in the finding aid. Museum staff should contact the Museum Archives if they wish to view any of these materials.

Related Material

As The Museum of Modern Art Exhibition Records span the entire history of MoMA from its beginning in 1929 through 2000, other records relating to materials in this collection can be found in most other collections in the Museum Archives. Significant exhibition documentation may particularly be found in the Department of Public Information Scrapbooks and Records. Since numerous MoMA exhibitions toured domestically and internationally, records concerning those tours may be found in Department of Circulating Exhibitions Records and International Council and International Program Records. Many records concerning exhibitions can be found among the papers of senior staff, particularly in the early days of the Museum; such collections include the Alfred H. Barr, Jr. Papers, René d'Harnoncourt Papers, Dorothy C. Miller Papers, the James Thrall Soby Papers, the Frank O'Hara Papers, and many others. Exhibition Installation images, when present, can be viewed online at maid.moma.org. All published exhibition catalogues are available in the Museum Library along with other exhibition-related publications, museum newsletters, annual reports, and printed ephemera. The Museum began publishing web pages for selected exhibitions in the 1990s, all such content is still available at MoMA.org now linked from the current exhibition web pages where, since 2016, individual pages exist for all exhibitions in MoMA and MoMA PS1's history, with attached digitized documents and materials.


Administrative Information

Provenance

Records in this collection were created and held by various departments within the Museum in the course of planning and staging exhibitions and later stored in different locations over the decades of the Museum's history. In 2000, as preparation for MoMA's temporary relocation to Queens during the construction of the Taniguchi expansion, the Archives coordinated the inventory and off-site storage of the records. In 2006, the Archives withdrew from records management all exhibition records from each curatorial department and the office of the Registrar dating from before 1990. These records were combined, in order by exhibition, into two distinct collections, Registrar files (REG) and Curatorial files (CUR) and made publicly available to researchers upon request and after vetting. Master checklists, kept by the Registrar and stored separate from their loan files, were received by the Archives in 2012. In 2014, with generous funding from the Leon Levy Foundation, the Museum Archives embarked on a new project to merge the Registrar and Curatorial files and master checklists into a single collection (while preserving information on their office of origin), integrate additional files not previously available, physically process and rehouse the records to stabilize and preserve them, and for the first time to fully describe the materials. The second phase of that project addressed records from 1990 through 2000, some of which were still held by the departments and all of which had been previously unavailable to researchers.
