14:32@MoMA - Scenes for a New Heritage: Contemporary Art from the Collection
A sweeping reinstallation of The Museum of Modern Art’s contemporary collection presents a wide range of artistic approaches to the political, social, and cultural flux that have shaped the current global landscape. Scenes for a New Heritage: Contemporary Art from the Collection, features video, installation, sculpture, drawing, prints, and photography created in the past three decades by more than 30 international artists, with more than half of the works on view for the first time.
The last 30 years have seen remarkable societal and cultural change, as major shifts in geopolitical dynamics destabilized the established world order, new economies emerged to challenge those long dominant, and the Internet radically altered the ways in which we access and generate information. New networks developed in response to this era of unprecedented global exchange, encompassing not only goods, knowledge, currency, and power, but also the creation, distribution, and reception of art. Made by artists working across mediums and under a diverse range of geographic, political, social, and aesthetic circumstances, the works in the exhibition are considered in dialogue, allowing us to reflect not only on their differences, but also to consider their shared concerns, offering a new perspective on the Museum’s Collection.
A number of works will return to the galleries after extended absences; Cai Guo-Qiang’s (Chinese, b. 1957) monumental Borrowing Your Enemy’s Arrows (1998), a fishing boat pierced by thousands of arrows, will be displayed at the Museum for the first time in over a decade. Among the works that will be on view for the first time at MoMA are Gamepieces (2003/2009), a multimedia installation by Nalini Malani (Indian, b. 1946) that deftly blends mythology and history; Haegue Yang’s (Korean, b. 1971) Sallim (2009), a sculptural reinterpretation of the artist’s Berlin kitchen; and Alfredo Jaar’s (Chilean, b. 1956) landmark project Lament of the Images (2002).
Organized by Quentin Bajac, the Joel and Anne Ehrenkranz Chief Curator of Photography; Eva Respini, Curator, Department of Photography; Ana Janevski, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art; and Sarah Suzuki, Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints; with Katerina Stathopoulou, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Photography.
The exhibition is supported by the MoMA Annual Exhibition Fund.
