Located in the New York City boro of Queens, and housed in a former parachute harness factory, the 25,000 sq ft museum is devoted to the exhibition and study of the contemporary art collection of Emily Fisher Landau. The core of the 1,500 work collection spans 1960 to the present and contains key works by artists who have shaped the art of the last 50 years, including John Baldessari, Jenny Holzer, Neil Jenney, Jasper Johns, Donald Judd, Sherrie Levine, Glenn Ligon, Agnes Martin, Robert Rauschenberg, Susan Rothenberg, Ed Ruscha, Kiki Smith, and Cy Twombly, among others.
"Emily Fisher Landau’s insightful selection of works by contemporary masters, many of which she bought from the artists early in their careers, is reflected in exhibitions presented at the [museum]. Her ongoing commitment to emerging artists extends to the annual presentation of the Columbia University School of Visual Arts MFA Thesis Exhibition."
