Marking the 150th anniversary of the American architect's birth on June 8, 1867, the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) is presenting 'Frank Lloyd Wright at 150: Unpacking the Archive' (, a major exhibition comprising 450 works made from the 1890s through the 1950s, including architectural drawings, models, building fragments, films, television broadcasts, print media, furniture, tableware, textiles, paintings, photographs and scrapbooks, along with a number of works that have rarely or never been publicly exhibited. MoMA says this is an anthology, rather than a comprehensive, monographic presentation of Wright's work. The exhibition is divided into 12 sections, each of which investigates a key object or cluster of objects from the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation archives.
