NEW YORK CITY— Museum of Modern Art conservator Ellen Moody prepares a wood and paperboard model of Frank Lloyd Wright’s “St. Mark’s-in-the-Bouwerie Towers” for restoration. The tower model will be one of many featured in the upcoming exhibition “Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive,” at MoMA in June 2017.
Marking the 150th anniversary of the American architect’s birth on June 8, 1867, the exhibition will comprise approximately 450 works made from the 1890s through the 1950s, including architectural drawings, models, building fragments, films, television broadcasts, print media, furniture, tableware, textiles, paintings, photographs and scrapbooks along with a number of works that have rarely or never been publicly exhibited. Structured as an anthology rather than a comprehensive, monographic presentation of Wright’s work, the exhibition is divided into 12 sections, each of which investigates a key object or cluster of objects from the Frank Lloyd Wright Archive, interpreting and contextualizing it, as well as juxtaposing it with other works from the Archive, from MoMA or from outside collections.
The Museum of Modern Art is at 11 West 53rd Street. For more information, www.moma.com or 212-708-9400.
