ABSTRACT

This paper examines the dual strategy contained in Artist’s Choice, a collection exhibition series at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York. Artist’s Choice, which started in 1989, is a project that asks artists to plan an exhibition of their collection. Through this series, MoMA has secured an openness to view the collections from an individual point of view. It shows the choice of realizing the exhibition as an independent medium while competing. In particular, Amy Sillman’s Shape of Shape, which opened with MoMA’s reopening in 2019, is an artist’s unique installation with “shape” as the exhibition agenda, which has been less discussed than color and line in Western art history and art institutions. MoMA’s Artist’s Choice series should be understood as opening the possibility of viewing the museum’s collections from the perspective of an individual and through the artists’ own individual art practice and knowledge.
