Since its founding in 1929 the Museum has promoted its activities through press releases. These are informative and often unique sources on MoMA exhibitions, programs, persons, events, and artworks.
1996–present releases are selective. These include all major news announcements, film and gallery exhibition releases, and MoMA building project releases.
Press release titles are searchable within a given year. For example, to find 1945 releases with the word photograph or photography in the title, click 1945 and search (PC: ctrl+F; Mac: command+F) for photograph. (Note: some years are listed in successive screens. Repeat the search for each screen). To search the full text of a given press release, open the PDF file and search (PC: ctrl+F; Mac: command+F) for photograph.
