I IL MOMA SI TRASFORMA. GREAT NEWS FROM OCTOBER -
The MoMa has announced that it will close for about four months, from 15 June to 21 October 2019, to carry out renovation work and reorganise the way its works are exhibited. The museum had already been closed for restoration in 2004, but in this case the work had taken two years and had been temporarily relocated to Queens.
The reopening will surprise visitors: at the end of the renovation, the museum will still have three floors, with the works in chronological order, but with a larger exhibition area. In addition to the famous works, the approximately 4,000 square metres that will be added will also house works by lesser known artists, especially women, including the Japanese experimental photographer Shigeru Onischi and the Haitian painter Herve' Te'le'maque, Latin American, Asian and African American.
Of course, Picasso's and Van Gogh's works will continue to be exhibited, but the museum will change the selection in the various galleries cyclically and change part of the exhibited works every year. The MoMA extension, designed by Diller Scofidio + Renfro in collaboration with Gensler, includes part of the former American Folk Art Museum, now closed and relocated to the Upper West Side of New York.
New features are also planned for the opening hours (the museum opens every first Thursday of the month at 10.00 a.m. and closes every first Thursday of the month at 9.00 p.m.), for the entrance hall and for the newly designed book and designer shops.
