From the Collection: Artists at Mid to Late Career
Opens November 1, 2017

This presentation in the Museum’s fourth-floor collection galleries will focus exclusively on works made by artists in their mid to late careers. Spanning from the 1960s to today, the installation chronicles the many years of sustained experimentation, daring invention, and thoughtful reconsideration that distinguish an individual artist’s career long after his or her breakthrough moment. Highlighting lesser-known works by prominent artists and key works by some less familiar names, Artists at Mid to Late Career provides an alternate view of the history of art over the last half century. All works are drawn from MoMA’s collection, with examples by Lee Bontecou, Louise Bourgeois, Beauford Delaney, Gego, Philip Guston, David Hammons, Jasper Johns, Alice Neel, Georgia O’Keeffe, Gerhard Richter, and many others.
