Oasis in the City: The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden at The Museum of Modern Art - Hardcover
The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden at The Museum of Modern Art is beloved by all, whether artists or museumgoers, New Yorkers or visitors from around the world. It is a respite from the crowds and skyscrapers that surround it, as well as a place to commune with major works of modern and contemporary art. Through essays and archival images, this lavishly illustrated volume pays tribute to the Garden’s beauty and remarkable history over the past eighty years. It features Philip Johnson’s elegant and enduring design, the sculptures that have become synonymous with the space, and the diverse activities and events that have taken place there: exhibitions, performances, social gatherings, and even protests. This unique publication also debuts a portfolio of images of the Garden by some of the world’s most renowned photographers: Tina Barney, Candida Höfer, Vera Lutter, Richard Pare, Thomas Struth, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Carrie Mae Weems, and James Welling.
