The Museum of Modern Art announces Alexander Calder: Modern from the Start, a focused look at one of the most well-known and beloved artists of the twentieth century through the lens of his relationship with MoMA. On view from March 14, 2021, through August 7, 2021, Alexander Calder: Modern from the Start will include approximately seventy artworks paired with film, historical photographs, and other archival materials drawn from MoMA’s collection and augmented by key loans from the Calder Foundation, New York. The exhibition is organized by Cara Manes, Associate Curator, with Zuna Maza and Makayla Bailey, Curatorial Fellows, Department of Painting, and Sculpture.

In recognition of the heroic work of New York City’s healthcare professionals during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, MoMA will continue to welcome healthcare professionals who work in New York City’s five boroughs with free daily admission through October 1, 2021, made possible by the Museum’s longstanding partner UNIQLO.

The health, safety, and experience of all visitors remains MoMA’s top priority. The Museum will continue to implement its rigorous health and safety protocols that follow CDC, New York State, and New York City guidelines, including: timed ticketing to ensure capacity remains at or under twenty-five percent, requiring face masks, administering contactless temperature and bag checks, practicing social distancing, and providing contactless hand-sanitizer dispensers throughout the Museum and plexiglass barriers at all desks.
