MoMa Brings Back the ‘60s
This past spring MoMa opened a new curated exhibit “From the Collection:1960-1969” on its fourth-floor collection galleries. It features works across mediums, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architecture, design objects, videos, films, and archival materials. Each gallery is dedicated to works from a single year, and the galleries proceed in chronological order. This approach provides a framework for displaying a wide-ranging selection of objects from the Museum’s collection, offering visitors a rare opportunity to see an automobile in proximity to an oil painting, an etching juxtaposed with an architectural model, or a film alongside a sculpture. One of the coolest items on display? Jaguar E-Type Roadster (1961). The exhibit is there through March 2017. Get more details.
