Fodor's Expert Review MoMA PS1

Long Island City Museum/Gallery Fodor's Choice
MoMA PS1, Long Isalnd City, Queens, New York City, New York, USA

A pioneer in the "alternative-space" movement, MoMA PS1 rose from the ruins of an abandoned school in 1976 as a sort of community arts center for the future, focusing on the work of currently active experimental and innovative artists. Long-term installations include work by Sol LeWitt, James Turrell, and Pipilotti Rist. Every available corner of the enormous building is used; discover art not only in former classrooms–turned–galleries, but also in the boiler room, and even in some bathrooms. On summer Saturdays, MoMA PS1 presents Warm Up, an outdoor dance party series that attracts a hip art-school crowd, held in the courtyard noon–9. Similarly, their Sunday Sessions are held fall through spring (hours and dates vary) in the VW Dome and include various artistic installations, scholarly lectures, and special performances.
