The Prophet (1964) by Parviz Tanavoli. The Ben and Abby Grey Foundation. Last week, New York’s Museum of Modern Art took the opportunity to rehang a significant portion of its permanent collection, replacing it with work by artists from countries whose citizens were banned from entering the US under President Trump’s executive order on immigration. The artworks have been rehung on the fifth floor—usually home to works by Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Francis Cabia. Now, the gallery features works from painter Ibrahim El-Salahi, architect Zaha Hadid, video artist Tala Madani, sculptor Parviz Tanavoli, draftsman Charles Hossein Zenderoudi, photographer Shirana Shahbazi and painter Marcos Grigorian. MoMA plans to change out more of its permanent collection, and has also scheduled four screenings of films by directors subject to the ban: Al-Yazerli (1974) by Iraqi-born German director Kais al-Zubaidi and Stars in Broad Daylight (1988) by Syrian director Ossama Mohammed. Reluctant to discuss details with the press, MoMA instead released a public statement outlining their intentions. The artworks installed throughout the fifth-floor galleries, they wrote, “affirm the ideals of welcome and freedom as vital to this Museum, as they are to the United States.” TwitterFacebookPinterest Related Stories Arts & Culture Issue 19 Going Incognito We all secretly wonder what mischief we’d make if invisible: When our identity is hidden, everything seems possible.
