MoMA To Make Thousands Of Archival Images Of Exhibitions Available Online


“Beginning Thursday, after years of planning and digitizing, much of that archive will now be available on the museum’s website,, searchable so that visitors can time-travel to see what the museum looked like during its first big show (‘Cézanne, Gauguin, Seurat, van Gogh,’ in the fall of 1929); during seminal exhibitions (Kynaston McShine’s ‘Information’ show in 1970, one of the earliest surveys of Conceptual art); and during its moments of high-minded glamour (Audrey Hepburn, in 1957, admiring a Picasso with Alfred H. Barr Jr., the museum’s domineering first director).”
