About MoMA PS1

Long Island City, NY

PS1 was born out of New York’s alternative space movement in the 1970s, transforming an abandoned nineteenth century schoolhouse in Long Island City, Queens, into a space for artists and their collaborators to generate ideas and present work.

Located in what was once an industrial enclave, the institution has now become a creative landmark in the fastest growing residential neighborhood in the country. Continuously responsive to the potential for collective impact, in 1976 PS1 was registered as an independent non-profit in a city-owned building. In 1982 it became the first Cultural Institutions Group (CIG) that focused on contemporary art as part of NYC’s Department of Cultural Affairs. Then in 2000, PS1 also established an affiliation with the Museum of Modern Art, and in 2010 it became known as MoMA PS1.

In 2022–23 PS1 has a budget of approximately $11M and is a team of about 50 led by an independent Board of Directors. Embracing that we operate by, for and with artists, we are focusing on collective action to reach our local and global community in our programming. Working with an evolving constellation of practitioners, neighbors and partners, we are committed to the critical work of diversity, equity, access, and inclusion. It is through these lenses that we examine and build our programs, relationships and organizational culture.

PS1 champions how art and artists are at the intersection of the social, cultural, and political issues of their time, and we center equity in how we work and what we do.
