VIDEO AND NEW LARGE-SCALE WALL DRAWING ADDRESSING WOMEN AND MODERNISM BY ANDREA GEYER ON VIEW AT THE MUSEUM OF MODERN ART BEGINNING OCTOBER 16

Selection of Works Inspired by Research on MoMA’s Three Founders Are Culmination of 18-Month Artist Research Residency

NEW YORK, October 9, 2015—A two-part presentation of works by Andrea Geyer (German and American, b. 1971) will be on view at The Museum of Modern Art this fall in The Agnes Gund Garden Lobby. The video projection Insistence (2013) (on view October 16–November 15, 2015) and the large-scale wall drawing Revolt, They Said (2012–ongoing) (on view October 16–November 29, 2015) challenge the lack of recognition of women’s work in the construction of the modernist movement during the 1920s and 1930s in New York City and beyond. These two works are the culmination of Geyer’s research on the three women who founded MoMA in 1929—Lillie P. Bliss, Abby Aldrich Rockefeller, and Mary Quinn Sullivan—conducted with the support of The Museum of Modern Art Archives. The display is organized by Stuart Comer, Chief Curator, and Erica Papernik-Shimizu, Assistant Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, MoMA.
