Summary:Published to accompany an exhibition at the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris -the first major presentation in France of works from The Museum of Modern Art- 'Being Modern: Building the Collection of the Museum of Modern Art' presents more than one hundred paintings, sculptures, architecture drawings, design objects, photographs, films, video games, and more, telling the story of how these items came to be part of one of the world's greatest collections of modern and contemporary art. A short essay by a MoMA curator introduces each entry, providing fascinating insights into the artworks themselves as well as the circumstances of their acquisition by the Museum. Organized chronologically according to the year each item entered MoMA's collection, the book offers a rare glimpse of the Museum's inner workings.
