MoMA PS1 announces EXPO 1: New York, an exploration of ecological challenges in the context of the economic and socio-political instability of the early 21st century. Acting in the guise of a festival-as-institution, EXPO 1: New York reconsiders the museum from the ground up, presenting a simultaneity of modules, interventions, solo projects, and group exhibitions that encompass all of MoMA PS1 and other locations such as Rockaway Beach. It includes Room with Reduced Chair and Camouflaged Factory (2003) by Mark Manders.

The concept of EXPO 1: New York was developed by MoMA PS1 Director and MoMA Chief Curator-at-Large Klaus Biesenbach with Hans Ulrich Obrist and an advisory group including Peter Eleey, Paola Antonelli, Pedro Gadanho, Laura Hoptman, Roxana Marcoci, and Jenny Schlenzka. EXPO 1: New York is organized by Klaus Biesenbach with Christopher Y. Lew, and Lizzie Gorfaine, with specific curators for several of the modules and exhibitions.

Klaus Biesenbach explains, “EXPO 1: New York focuses on some of the most pressing issues of the day—specifically recent ecological challenges set against a backdrop of economic and socio-political concerns that have made a dramatic impact on daily life.” Biesenbach continues, “These urgencies are described, examined, and addressed through different modes: the exhibition of artworks in gallery spaces, educational lectures and discourse, a regular program of moving images, and direct action in improving the building of MoMA PS1 with the installation of solar panels, a temporary energy-saving enclosure of the terrace, and the cultivation of plants and produce.” EXPO 1: New York is made possible by a partnership with Volkswagen.
