Construction Update


The four buildings that primarily housed the galleries for the museum's permanent collection have been removed in advance of the construction of our new Building for the Permanent Collection—the David Geffen Galleries. It will open in 2024.

Exhibitions in BCAM and the Resnick Pavilion feature a rotation of artworks from the museum's permanent collection.
