NYT21 - (NYT21) NEW YORK -- Nov. 18, 2004 -- MOMA-COLLECTION-2 -- Matisse's "Dance" awaits visitors on the staircase to the fifth floor of the Museum of Modern Art. Never mind that the almost shockingly big Museum of Modern Art, which opens on Saturday, Nov. 20, 2004, could hardly have been other than an improvement on the previous expansion, 20 years ago, which was a rats' maze of galleries around an escalator. By and large the redone museum, although more than a trifle like the new corporate headquarters of modernism, is a triumph of formal restraint and practical design -- an eloquent reaffirmation, within its galleries, of the enduring beauty of the Moderns historic, albeit tendentious, account of modernism.
