This historical volume was edited by Harriet Schoenholz Bee, formerly Editorial Director in the Museum's Department of Publications, and Michelle Elligott, Archivist in the Museum's Department of Museum Archives.
With historical photographs and archival documents, many of them never before published, Art in Our Time contains images of the Museum's various exhibition spaces, buildings and gardens—from its original home in the Heckscher Building at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 57th Street, to its present location in Yoshio Taniguchi's complex on West 53rd Street. It also includes installation shots of major exhibitions and important events at the Museum, and photographs of curatorial staff and Museum officials whose discerning policies helped shape our understanding of modern art. Documents include excerpts from letters, invitations, and other archival material that tell the story of The Museum of Modern Art from its beginnings to the present. Includes 556 illustrations (171 in color).
