MoMA Takes a Stand: Art From Banned Countries

Now the Museum of Modern Art — which in past decades has cultivated a templelike detachment — is making its voice heard as well.

This work is by an artist from a nation whose citizens are being denied entry into the United States, according to a presidential executive order issued on January 27, 2017. This is one of several such artworks from the Museum’s collection installed throughout the fifth-floor galleries to affirm the ideals of welcome and freedom as vital to this Museum, as they are to the United States.
