The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is an art museum located in Midtown Manhattan in New York City, on 53rd Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues. MoMA has been important in developing and collecting modernist art, and is often identified as one of the largest and most influential museums of modern art in the world. MoMA’s collection offers an overview of modern and contemporary art, including works of architecture and design, drawing, painting, sculpture, photography, prints, illustrated books and artist’s books, film, and electronic media.

 

现代艺术博物馆(简称为MoMA)是一所在美国纽约市曼哈顿中城的博物馆,也是世界上最杰出的现代艺术收藏之一。位于曼哈顿第53街(在第五和第六大道之间),此博物馆经常与大都会博物馆相提并论,虽馆藏少于前者,但在现代艺术的领域里,该馆拥有较多重要的收藏。

 

Considered by many to have the best collection of modern Western masterpieces in the world, MoMA’s holdings include more than 150,000 individual pieces in addition to approximately 22,000 films and 4 million film stills.

 

现代艺术博物馆目前已拥有馆藏个人作品超过15万件、2万多部电影以及4百万幅电影剧照。

MoMA developed a world-renowned art photography collection first under Edward Steichen and then under Steichen’s hand-picked successor John Szarkowski, which included photos by Todd Webb. The department was founded by Beaumont Newhall in 1940. Under Szarkowski, it focused on a more traditionally modernist approach to the medium, one that emphasized documentary images and orthodox darkroom techniques.

 

现代艺术博物馆同时也是将摄影艺术纳入馆藏的重要机构,在第一任摄影部主任爱德华·史泰钦的主持下,收入了不少新闻摄影与艺术摄影的杰作,并由约翰·札考斯基扩大规模,将电影、电影剧照等也纳入收藏,使得此馆成为美国电影与影片收藏的重镇。
