At the core of The Museum of Modern Art's new building in Midtown Manhattan are dramatic and expansive new galleries devoted to showcasing the Museum's world-famous collection of international contemporary art. Contemporary Highlights presents this impressive collection in a portable size. This new handbook features curators' selections of the most significant artworks of the past twenty-five years. Interweaving 250 highlights from the Museum's seven curatorial departments - architecture and design, drawing, film, media, painting and sculpture, photography and prints, and illustrated books - this volume presents a broadly chronological overview of the innovative, provocative and always fascinating art of the past quarter century. Each work is presented on its own page in full colour, and each is accompanied by a brief and accessible essay outlining the work's significance. As a companion to MoMA Highlights or on its own, Contemporary Highlights is an indispensable publication for those interested in contemporary art and the collection of The Museum of Modern Art.
