    Abstract Expressionist New York, at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) until April 25, 2011, is drawn  entirely from the Museum’s vast holdings. Abstract Expressionist New York underscores the achievements of a generation that catapulted New York City to the center of the international art world during the 1950s, and left as its legacy some of the twentieth century’s greatest masterpieces. Galleries on the fourth floor present Abstract Expressionist paintings, sculptures, prints, drawings, photographs, films, and archival materials in a display subtitled The Big Picture, marking the first time in the history of the new Museum building that a full floor has been devoted to a single theme.  In this video, Ann Temkin, MoMA curator, takes us through the context.
