Overview

The bright, clean architecture of the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) – all glass, open spaces and high ceilings – is a gleaming masterwork of contemporary design and the perfect setting for viewing the greatest collection of modern art in the world. An $858 million expansion and renovation of the Midtown headquarters of the museum by Japanese architect Yoshio Taniguchi was completed in 2004, doubling its size and adding an elegant granite, aluminum, and glass façade and loft like-galleries.

Up the concrete staircase, on the second floor, is the true heart of the new MoMA – the four-story-high Marron Atrium, which The New York Times called the “most prominent sign of the museum’s giddy embrace of the new and the next, of large-scale installation and video art, as well as performance art, generally of art as entertainment and spectacle.” Upstairs, there are architectural and photo exhibits and video installation rooms, which periodically showcase major retrospectives of master modern artists or comprehensive thematic exhibitions like Abstract Expressionism in New York. The fourth and fifth floors house the permanent collections, featuring such famous works as Jasper Johns’ Flag, van Gogh’s The Starry Night and Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d'Avignon, as well as a broad selection of Jackson Pollock’s drip paintings and Rothko’s mood-altering canvases of pure color. Smaller galleries contain retrospectives, photo exhibits, drawings and historically linked thematic exhibitions.
