Product Description

MoMA Contemporary Highlights (PB)

At the core of The Museum of Modern Art's new building in Midtown Manhattan are dramatic and expansive new galleries devoted to showcasing the Museum's world-famous collection of international contemporary art. Contemporary Highlights presents this impressive collection in pocket size. This new handbook is a guide to the Museum's contemporary collection, featuring curators' selections of the most significant artworks of the past twenty-five years. As a companion to Modern Highlights or on its own, Contemporary Highlights is an indispensable publication for those interested in the development of contemporary art and the collection of The Museum of Modern Art.

Interweaving 250 highlights from the Museum's six curatorial departments—Painting and Sculpture, Drawings, Prints and Illustrated Books, Photography, Architecture and Design, and Film and Media—this volume presents a broadly chronological overview of the innovative, provocative, and always fascinating art of the past quarter century. Each work is presented on its own page in full color, and each is accompanied by a brief and accessible essay outlining the work's significance. Includes 250 illustrations (200 color, 50 b&w).
