MoMA: The MUSEUM of modern art

MoMA didn’t have an awareness problem - every year they recieve 2.8 million visitors, they’re on every top 10 things to do in NY list. They didn’t need an advertising campaign, they just legitimized modern art, and they came to us with the question “Now what.” They wanted people to understand, engage and connect with modern art in a whole new way.

SO We set MoMA on a path to think of themselves not as a place, but a point of view, along the way changing what a museum can be today.

MoMA starts collaborative exhibitions across museums, partnering with the New Museum, Cooper Hewitt, The Met, and Whitney.


Now, MoMA is adding its voice to real-time events - even turning its curation into activism.

We simplified MoMA's application for artist members - reduced the price and gave them more reasons to join, like dedicated artist nights and networking events. The number of artist members has grown by 60% since its implementation.

We widened the definition of eligible artists allowed to apply for MoMA’s Artist Membership to match the art forms found on display in the walls of MoMA – designers, directors, performers — as well as painters and sculptors.

 

We helped MoMA rethink its role in the art community's broader life and issues, TACKLING real issues like affordable artist housing and studio spaces.
