This event has ended.

Trisha Donnelly (American, b. 1974) is the tenth artist to participate in the Artist’s Choice series, for which contemporary artists are invited to organize an exhibition drawn entirely from MoMA’s collection. Donnelly is an artist whose oeuvre takes on many different forms, and she intentionally complicates the way we typically apprehend and classify a work of art, not to confuse, but to change and fundamentally enhance the ways in which we experience it. For this exhibition, on view in three of The Alfred H. Barr Painting and Sculpture Galleries on the fourth and fifth floors, she has selected rarely seen 20th-century photographs, films, design items, architectural renderings, prints, drawings, paintings, and sculptures, organizing them into three discrete presentations that together create fresh portals through which to discover MoMA’s collection.
