INSIGHTS BY DIRECTOR GLENN D. LOWRY WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 11, 6:30PM RECEPTION, 7:00PM PROGRAM The Museum of Modern Art is currently in the midst of an expansion project that will open in October of this year, following the brief closure that started in June. The expansion, developed by MoMA with architects Diller Scofidio + Renfro, in collaboration with architectural firm, Gensler, adds more than 40,000 square feet of gallery space and enables the Museum to exhibit significantly more art in new and interdisciplinary ways, increasing the Museum’s footprint by one-third. “Inspired by Alfred Barr’s original vision to be an experimental museum in NewYork, the real value of this expansion is not just more space, but space that allows us to rethink the experience of art in the Museum,” said Glenn D. Lowry,The David Rockefeller Director of The Museum of Modern Art. Mr. Lowry,Williams ’76, has been MoMA’s Director since 1995 and will take us inside the New MoMA for a preview of what is to come. “We have an opportunity to re-energize and expand upon our founding mission—to welcome everyone to experience MoMA as a laboratory for the study and presentation of the art of our time, across all visual arts.” The Studio in the heart of the Museum will feature live programming and performances that react to, question, and challenge histories of modern art and the current cultural moment. An innovative second-floor Platform for education will invite visitors to connect with art that explores new ideas about the present, past, and future. A street-level Projects gallery, free and open to all on the expanded ground floor, will better connect the Museum to NewYork City and bring art closer to people on the streets of midtown Manhattan. The Collection’s reinstallation will reveal a presentation that highlights the creative affinities and frictions produced by displaying painting, sculpture, architecture, design, photography, media, performance, film, and works on paper together. MoMA’s Director, Glenn Lowry, will provide Club Members with an insightful program about THE NEW & IMPROVED MoMA
