The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) acquires modern and contemporary art from around the world and hosts exhibits and film programs. It also supports research and publications related to its mission.
MoMA’s collection includes almost 200,000 works of art, such as paintings, sculptures, drawings, prints, and photographs; among these are works of Alexander Calder, Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh, Jasper Johns, and Jackson Pollack.
The collection also includes more than 30,000 films, videos, and related works. MoMA was founded in 1929 as a progressive alternative to traditional museums.
A significant renovation and expansion of the museum, which nearly doubled its space, was completed in 2004.
