NEW YORK, NY.- The Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, and Volkswagen announced details of a two-year partnership today at a press conference at MoMA. The major components of the partnership are the support for an international contemporary art exhibition at MoMA PS1 in 2013, and the expansion of MoMA's online course offerings beginning in March 2012. It also includes sponsorship of a series of installations in MoMA's Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden and of the exhibition Francis Als: A Story of Deception, as well as the donation of two works by artist Francis Als to MoMA's collection.

This unprecedented partnership supports MoMA and MoMA PS1's leadership role in contemporary art and culture, and our goal of reaching a diverse and global audience.

"We are pleased to have a strong partner in Volkswagen, whose commitment to innovation and education parallels the Museum's," said MoMA Director Glenn D. Lowry. "This important partnership will enable The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 to realize longstanding goals and ambitious exhibitions and programs."

"Artists give us food for thought and let us look at the world from new angles. MoMA is one of the world's leading institutions in the field of contemporary art. With its persuasive expertise and its educational mission, it is our partner of choice. This partnership expresses our corporate commitment to take responsibility for the environment and for society", is how Prof. Dr. Martin Winterkorn, CEO of Volkswagen Aktiengesellschaft, described this cultural partnership.

As part of the partnership with Volkswagen, Mr. Biesenbach will engage in extensive research to scout artists working in multiple mediums throughout the world. A major exhibition filling MoMA PS1's entire gallery space will open in 2013, highlighting artists who are reacting to the pressing questions of the 21st century with its interrelated ecological, economical, spiritual, ethnographic, political, and social challenges.

"While MoMA PS1 has a long history of presenting work by contemporary artists on an international scale, this partnership will allow us to research, evaluate, and present the most wide-ranging survey of artists working innovatively around the globe," said Klaus Biesenbach, Director of MoMA PS1 and Chief Curator at Large at MoMA.
