The Joyce and Robert Menschel Hall for Modern Photography displays photography of the past fifty years, focusing on the medium's increasingly central relationship to the broader arena of contemporary art.
Exhibitions change every six to eight months and are drawn primarily from the permanent collection. Selections from the Metropolitan's small but growing collection of moving-image works are also regularly featured in this gallery.
