This event has ended.

The Museum of Modern Art presents Projects 195: Park McArthur, the artist’s first museum solo exhibition in New York. Taking shape alongside the Museum’s current building and expansion project, the exhibition focuses on the social realities and possibilities within the architectural parameters of site and scale. Projects 195: Park McArthur is organized by Magnus Schaefer, Assistant Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints, with Tara Keny, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Drawings and Prints.

The exhibition comprises works on paper, an audio guide, and a modular, stainless steel structure that will be rearranged periodically throughout the exhibition’s duration. This structure doubles as an exploratory design for a multistory, mixed-use building that would offer below-market housing for disabled and non-disabled people who mutually receive and provide care. This proposal also includes space for artist studios, a public gallery, and amenities, such as a swimming pool. McArthur’s exhibition situates this structure in relation to MoMA’s institutional space and its proximity to the residential building currently under construction at the west end of the Museum campus. Scheduled for completion in 2019, MoMA’s expansion project will add exhibition spaces in this newly developed tower, with 145 private luxury apartments above the Museum. Projects 195 continues McArthur’s engagement with questions of structural inaccessibility and the limitations of conceiving accessibility solely in terms of physical access, considerations that have informed the artist’s previous work, including Ramps (2014) at ESSEX STREET gallery.
