Announcing the Opening of the MoMA PS1 Archives
The Museum of Modern Art Archives is pleased to announce the opening of the MoMA PS1 Archives to the public. Stretching over 300 linear feet in more than 11,000 folders, the archives is the comprehensive institutional record of the groundbreaking nonprofit art space from its independent beginnings in 1971 through its merger with MoMA in 1999 and into the 21st century. Nearly half of the collection comprises exhibition and press records—direct documentation of nearly 900 exhibitions and events—while seven other series contain records of the founder and director Alanna Heiss and other programs and administrative activities. The collection is an exceptional record not only of an individual organization but also of successive eras of the New York art world.
The MoMA PS1 Archives can be consulted by appointment at the MoMA Archives reading room at MoMA QNS; open Mondays, 11:00 a.m.–5:00 p.m. Appointments can be made through the Archives contact form.
