"We invite audiences to experience the beloved holdings of The Frick Collection, reframed in a completely new context. Serving as the Frick’s temporary home while its historic buildings at 1 East 70th Street undergo renovation, Frick Madison marks the first time that a substantial gathering of collection highlights has been presented outside the walls of the museum’s Gilded Age mansion."

Frick Madison is located at 945 Madison Avenue at 75th Street, the former site of the Met Breuer and, previously, the Whitney Museum of American Art, which commissioned the building from architect Marcel Breuer in 1966. The Frick has created a sequence of gallery spaces at Frick Madison that reflects the museum’s traditional emphasis on intimate encounters with both art and architecture and allows direct access to objects without the interference of vitrines or stanchions. The installation at Frick Madison respects the forms and materials of Marcel Breuer’s modernist creation of stone and concrete, juxtaposing beloved Frick masterpieces with the building’s distinct architectural features, such as its signature trapezoid windows.
