Collection

Description

The MCA’s permanent collection includes more than 2,500 artworks that span media and movements from the 1920s to the present. Although not on permanent display, works from the collection appear regularly in our many rotating exhibitions. The entire collection, with images and descriptions, is presented here for the first time. Explore it by artist, title, or creation date.

Featured Work

	
A black box containing an image of white box is mounted on the side of a thick black frame. The entire piece is intersected by a horizontal blue line, which appears to be painter's tape.

The MCA’s basement-dwelling Rights and Images department is rarely called upon to answer last-minute installation questions days before the opening of an exhibition. Such was the case, however, regarding a recently acquired work, Edward Krasinski’s Interwencja (Intervention) (1983) in Above, Before & After (May 7, 2016–April 16, 2017).
