From an initial gift of eight prints and one drawing, The Museum of Modern Art’s collection has grown to include more than 150,000 individual paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, photographs, architectural renderings, and design objects and is now considered by many to have the best collection of modern Western masterpieces in the world. MoMA’s Department of Film, which ranks as one of the world’s top archives of international film art, includes over 25,000 titles and four million film stills and the MoMA Library includes 300,000 books, 1,000 periodicals, and 40,000 files about artists and their movements. Founded in 1929 in order to help people understand and enjoy the visual arts of our time, The Museum of Modern Art in New York City was the world's first museum dedicated to the education and enjoyment of modern art. In the Fall of 2019, after a $450-million, 47,000-square-foot expansion, a reimagined MoMa opened with a focus on new voices and fresh perspectives. They have reinstalled the entire collection to share a more broadened and inclusive view of the art of our time.

Life Cycles: The Materials of Contemporary Design

Any act of good design must also be an act of empathy, respect, and responsibility toward all living organisms and ecosystems––as well as future generations. By translating scientific, technological, and social revolutions into objects and behaviors, design can be an agent of positive change and pla... [ + ]y a crucial part in restoring the fragile ties between humans and the rest of nature. Life Cycles: The Materials of Contemporary Design explores the regenerative power of design as it shifts its focus towards a more collaborative rapport with the natural world.The objects in this exhibition highlight the entire life cycle of the materials they are made of. From extraction to reuse or disposal, designers are exploring new ways––sometimes drawn from old traditions––to enlist materials in their efforts to bring ecosystems into balance. Cow manure collected from the streets of Indonesia is transformed into casings for loudspeakers and lamps. Bricks made from crop waste and fungi mycelium are used as a carbon-neutral building material. Bees fabricate honeycomb vases over human-made forms. These objects demonstrate that design can be elegant, innovative, and compelling, while at the same time offering new strategies for repairing our planet.
