NEW YORK, NY.- Several photographic works by Annika von Hausswolff, Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe and other artists have been donated to Moderna Museet. These works will be shown in the museum’s new presentation of the collection – Another Story.

Moderna Museet’s focus on photography in 2011 has been met with great enthusiasm even before it is in full swing. Several impressive private donations of works by key artists working in the photographic medium have further enhanced the museum’s collection. Since the project Another Story (which will be launched in three phases over the year) highlights the Moderna Museet’s collection; the two directors of Moderna Museet, Daniel Birnbaum and Ann-Sofi Noring say “this generous donation is the best thing that could happen to the museum and its visitors”. Many of the new works can already be seen when the new presentation of the collection opens on February 24.

Commenting on the donations, Daniel Birnbaum and Ann-Sofi Noring said, “It’s fantastic that Moderna Museet has such generous friends. These new donations are a valuable enhancement of the Swedish people’s collection of photography, and give us a more comprehensive picture of our contemporary art. The museum’s own funding for acquisitions of art is restricted. It is with great satisfaction we have received so many valuable works in the past few weeks that significantly improve our ability to illustrate the development of photo-based art. Our new focus on photography could not have got off to a better start!”
