The Museum of Modern Art

The MUSEUM OF MODERN ART, New York City, received $6,300 to support the acquisition of Jerome Foundation-supported films and videos by emerging artists for the Museums permanent collection. As early as 1935, the Museum of Modern Art embraced motion pictures as an art form. In 1939, it began regular screenings to share works with the public. The Department of Film combines preservation with exhibition. Its collection is made publicly accessible through ongoing programs of classic and contemporary films that range from retrospectives and historical surveys to introductions of works by independent and experimental film and video makers. Since 1996, the Museum has received modest annual support, which it uses to purchase film and video works funded by the Jerome Foundation through its New York City and Minnesota Film and Video Grant Programs. The titles are chosen by Department of Film curators.
