MOMA announces Frank Lloyd Wright commemorative exhibition

New York’s Museum of Modern Art has announced a major retrospective of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work to be displayed in 2017, 150 years since the architect’s birth.

Opening next June, the exhibition will feature approximately 450 works  including drawings, models, films, television broadcasts, media, furniture, tableware, textiles, paintings, photographs, and scrapbooks, along with several works that have rarely or never been shown publicly.

It will be structured as an anthology of Wright’s work, separated into 12 sections dedicated to a key project or set of pieces from the Frank Lloyd Wright Archive, which was acquired in 2012 by the museum.

Models and drawings from works such as Unity Temple, the Robie House, Fallingwater (pictured) the Johnson Wax Administration Building will be on display, alongside investigations into lesser-known projects such as his proposed design for the Rosenwald School for African American children.
