The new Museum of Modern Art, housed in its spectacular redesigned building, has huge galleries perfect for considering the works on display, regardless of medium. Seeing the three floors of permanent collection was like visiting old friends, especially after their years of displacement in storage or temporary lodgings. However, I was appalled at the generally poor gender demographics of the collection on view. With the exception of the fine works by such icons as Agnes Martin, Louise Bourgeois, and Lee Krasner, there were few other pieces by women artists on display in the museum. Not a good sign for the bastion of modernism in the 21st century.
