The exhibition is organized by Peter Eleey, Chief Curator, MoMA PS1; and Klaus Biesenbach, Director, MoMA PS1 and Chief Curator at Large, The Museum of Modern Art. The exhibition is generously supported by The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art. Additional funding is provided by the MoMA PS1 Annual Exhibition Fund.
