Spanning the entire sixth floor of The Peggy and David Rockefeller building, the exhibition presents eleven watershed installations by living artists from the past two decades, all drawn from MoMA's Museum’s collection and on view for the first time. Each installation occupies its own gallery, providing an individualized, immersive experience.
