From Dada to Pop-Art, MoMA has always been on the forefront of what's exciting, unique, and important in the art world. So it was only a matter of time before Lomography had its moment in the MoMA spotlight!

In the modern art world, there are few museums on the planet as esteemed and revered for their ability to recognize important artistic movements as the MoMA (Museum of Modern Art) in New York City. From Dada to Pop-Art, MoMA has always been on the forefront of what’s exciting, unique, and important in the art world. So it was only a matter of time before Lomography had its moment in the MoMA spotlight!

Beginning mid-January and continuing through the beginning of February, three separate locations of MoMA Design Stores in NYC will feature impressive LomoWall installations with over 16,000 Lomographs. The images used to build the LomoWalls were assembled from two online photo rumbles that resulted in submissions from 28 countries around the world. While checking out these massive and breathtaking installations be sure to check out the latest array of Lomographic products available at the MoMA Design Stores, including the special edition MoMA DianaF+.

Locations:

  • MoMA Design Store, 44 West 53 Street, NYC, Installation from January 15th through February 2nd
