The Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series

 

The Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series series was established at The Museum of Modern Art in 1971 to present work by emerging artists and to bring reactionary, avant-garde art into the context of the museum. The series was intended not only to give undiscovered artists the opportunity to display new work, but also to give the junior curatorial staff the opportunity to initiate and organize exhibitions of art new to the museum. The series was renamed the Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series in 2006 in honor of Ms. Dannheisser, a longtime collector of contemporary art who bequeathed most of her collection to MoMA upon her death in 2001. Experimental and innovative, the Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series continues to challenge and expand viewers’ ideas about art and art practice.
