MoMA Opens New Exhibition: “Meret Oppenheim: My Exhibition”
The Museum of Modern Art will present the new exhibition Meret Oppenheim: My Exhibition on view from October 30th 2022 through March 4th of 2023. This is the first major transatlantic exhibition—and the first in the United States in over 25 years—to survey this visionary Swiss artist’s career.
On view October 30, 2022, through March 4, 2023, the exhibition considers the full scope of Oppenheim’s lifelong innovation through over 180 works, including paintings, sculptures, objects, collages, and drawings. Over the course of 50 years, Meret Oppenheim (1913–1985) produced an unconventional body of work that was characterized by her fierce originality and wit. At the time of her death in 1985, at age 72, her creations encompassed uncanny object constructions, narrative paintings, and geometric abstractions, as well as jewelry designs, public sculpture commissions, and poetry.
The exhibition will explore all of these facets of Oppenheim’s career, from early paintings such as Quick, Quick, the Most Beautiful Vowel is Voiding, M.E. by M.O. (1934), to mid-career sculptures such as The Green Spectator (1959), to monumental late works like New Stars (1977–82).
Venue: Museum of Modern Art
11 West 53rd Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues
