Contemporary art has a dynamic home at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art, located in the MFA’s dramatic I. M. Pei-designed building.
The wing features seven galleries introducing innovative approaches to contemporary art within the context of the Museum’s collections, offering new perspectives and encouraging connections between art of the past and present.
The Linde Family Wing is also a lively social space at the Museum—a gateway to experience contemporary culture, including art, music, film, performances, readings, lectures, courses, and artist demonstrationsc.
