press release

To celebrate the gift of forty-four works of contemporary art to the Museum by the financial services firm UBS, MoMA presents Contemporary Voices: Works from The UBS Art Collection. Renowned for its holdings of work by European and American artists of the last forty years, The UBS Art Collection was established in 1970 by Donald B. Marron, a longtime Trustee, former President, and current Vice Chairman of The Museum of Modern Art.

The exhibition, which includes both works from the gift and additional loans from The UBS Art Collection, features paintings, sculptures, photographs, and drawings by fifty-one artists. It covers a broad span of works that range from abstract paintings by Willem de Kooning and Brice Marden, figurative paintings by Philip Guston and Chuck Close, and Minimalist sculpture by Dan Flavin and Donald Judd to large-scale photography by Andreas Gursky and Thomas Struth and significant works on paper by Jenny Holzer and Cy Twombly. A fully illustrated catalogue accompanies the exhibition.

The exhibition and accompanying publication are made possible by UBS.
