Museum of Modern Art / New York

At The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1, we celebrate creativity, openness, tolerance, and generosity. We aim to be inclusive places, both onsite and online, where diverse cultural, artistic, social, and political positions are welcome. We’re committed to sharing the most thought-provoking modern and contemporary art, and hope you will join us in exploring the art, ideas, and issues of our time.

In 2000 The Museum of Modern Art and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center merged, creating the largest platform for contemporary art in the US, and one of the largest in the world. Ten years later P.S.1 was renamed MoMA PS1 to better reflect its relationship with The Museum of Modern Art.

Through jointly curated initiatives like Greater New York, the Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series, and the Young Architects Program; a shared website, and dozens of individually produced exhibitions and programs, The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 present a dynamic and varied offering of some of the most thought-provoking art produced today, together forming MoMA’s leading program of contemporary art. While each institution has its own mission statement, we work together on a daily basis, share curatorial perspectives and information, and have a common goal to provide the most engaging and incisive program possible.
