After a $450m expansion overseen by the architects Diller, Scofidio and Renfro, the Museum of Modern Art in New York reopens its doors on 21 October with 47,000 sq ft of additional gallery space and a more expansive story to tell about the history of modern art. Nancy Kenney, our senior editor in New York met this week with Sarah Suzuki, the drawings and prints curator who’s in charge of the reopening, and Rajendra Roy, the museum’s chief curator of film, to talk about these major changes in the museum. Then, three editors from The Art Newspaper's New York office—Helen Stoilas, Margaret Carrigan and Nancy Kenney—and our Insider correspondent, Linda Yablonsky, sat down to compare notes.
MoMA reopens on 21 October. And you can read a wealth of reporting on the building and the displays on our website theartnewpsaper.com, on our app for iOS which you can find in the App Store, and in the November print edition of The Art Newspaper, which is out at the end of the month.
