Five Plus One: Reopening, MoMA Will Show Six Site-Specific Works
The Museum of Modern Art in New York will display six long-term, site-specific artworks in its public spaces beginning October 21, when it officially reopens to the public after a $450 million renovation. Commissions by Kerstin Brätsch, the design collective Experimental JetsetGoshka MacugaYoko Ono, and Philippe Parreno, along with a large-scale work by Haim Steinbach recently acquired by the museum, will be on view in MoMA’s lobby, Café 2,  the Louise Reinhardt Smith Gallery, the Carroll and Milton Petrie Terrace Café, and the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building. The works vary in media and subject matter, from Macuga’s monumental Jacquard tapestry focusing largely on the museum and its collection to Ono’s PEACE is POWER (2019), for which the artist has covered the walls and ceilings of a third floor gallery with images of blue sky.
