The selected works represent various time periods and highlight a number of key directions that have come to define the identity of the collection and the museum more broadly. The collection includes significant works by Matthew Barney, Paul Chan, Trisha Donnelly, Félix González-Torres, Nan Goldin, Damien Hirst, Jeff Koons, Glenn Ligon, Bjarne Melgaard, Julie Mehretu and Cindy Sherman.
The museum building is designed by renowned Italian architect Renzo Piano, whose other notable museum buildings include Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris and Whitney Museum of American Art in New York.
