""Al piano terra, lo street museum diviene the dual street museum tra la 53th e la 54th, quasi una avenue interna "passante" , sia pure di sezione ridotta, di libera circolazione come una strada urbana dove si affacciano locali per il teatro e per il cinema, oltre ai desk di informazione e biglietteria"" N. Ventura, 2022
"four guiding or, indeed, foundational principles: continuity, intimacy, privacy, and this notion of seamless whole.(…)

Continuity influence the notion of narrativity and involves the way in which art is shown;

intimacy is always culturally mediated;

privacy involved the relationship of the viewer to the work of arts;

the notion of seamless whole, which is giving way to complexity (and then, ndr) to globalization and virtualization."
M. Taylor,1998
"The Museum recognize it cannot expand by simple enlarging the model that has guided it during past decades. It is too complex an institution, and the history of modern art is now too long and too varied to be told within the intimate, domestic-scale galleries and buildings that currently characterize the Museum. This does not means abandoning the sense of intimate that makes the Museum such an enjoyable place to visit; but it does mean realizing that intimacy is both a function scale and perception, and that in future we will have to rely on the clarity and intelligence of the architecture to provide a variety of spaces, which is and of themselves retain a feeling of intimacy, even if the whole is no longer of modest scale". G.D. Lowry, 1998

R. D'HANOUNCOURT 1949-1967
"he (R. D'Halancourt "learned" the artworks by sketching them, and then he amassed them with the intention "to relate the individual pieces to their cultural and/or artistic neighbors…in other words, to assemble objects that had some affinities."
"The museum's midblock location distinguishes it from other major New York city museums, most of which are located on the wider avenues and farther to the north. As a "street museum", it is not identified as an object surrounded by space, but as a part of the streetscape". G.D. Lowry, 1998

YOSHIO TANIGUCHI, THE A.A. ROCKFELLER SCUPLTURE GARDEN, NEW YORK 2003 (ph 2010-2016)
"Our garden has grown and shark and changed, but has been a focal point of definition for the museum." G. D. Lowry, 1998
""Qui allo Sculture Garden, quando i tempi si dilatano, i frequentatori amano sentirsi abitanti. Di un angolo di cittŕ. O forse dove la cittŕ si incontra e incontra l'arte per riconoscersi. Scrive Saramago: "se non esci da te stesso, non puoi sapere chi sei". La scommessa del MoMA č che l'isola sconosciuta forse non sarŕ nelle carte geografiche, ma č qui in cittŕ. Magari con simpatia verso gli altri visitatori, magari con simpatia verso gli stessi artisti ritratti dalle loro opere"." N. Ventura, 2022
