I think for MoMA there are lots of ambitions for the collection. One of them is to try to do away with the
idea that the permanent collection is permanent, but rather that it’s something that lives
and breathes, that’s constantly changing. I think it’s a responsibility of the collection
and the display to really respond to the time that we live in, to the conditions in which we live every day. That’s what we can do. We can bring this collection out, mix it,
and remix it so that it’s constantly responding to the world around us. We know that there are people who come because they are dying to see those Warhol soup cans, So this isn’t a question of kind of moving
those pictures to the side, it’s a question of introducing new neighbors to them. The new MoMA will show paintings, and photographs, and films, and drawings, and prints side by side and let them tell their stories to each other in ways they haven’t before.
