NEW YORK, NY.- In conjunction with the exhibition Abstract Expressionist New York, on view at The Museum of Modern Art through April 25, 2011, MoMA announces a free application for the Apple iPad, now available through the App Store. The Ab Ex NY App utilizes the technological capabilities of the iPad to foster enjoyment and understanding of major works of art from the Abstract Expressionist movement, which catapulted New York City to the center of the international art world in the 1950s and had a lasting influence on the history of modern art. The App is an informative and entertaining resource for use before or after a visit to the exhibition, or as a stand-alone guide to Abstract Expressionism through the lens of MoMA’s collection. The Ab Ex NY App provides iPad users with an immersive mobile experience blending high-resolution imagery, audio, video, mapping, and text in a user-friendly, fluid, and social interface. Some
