In 1976, the Institute for Art and Urban Resources took over an abandoned public-school building in Long Island City, Queens. P.S. 1’s first exhibition, “Rooms,” consisted of site-specific installations throughout the building by Vito Acconci, Gordon Matta-Clark, Dennis Oppenheim, Richard Serra, Nam June Paik, Bruce Nauman, John Baldessari, Carl Andre, and others.
P.S. 1 was brought under the umbrella of the Museum of Modern Art in 2000.
