On this special evening, Cecilia Vicu?a selects international poets to read their own works about the political line, a theme explored in On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century. In addition to Vicu?a, participants include poets Will Alexander, Luljeta Lleshanaku, and Dunya Mikhail, and translator Henry Israeli.

Contemporary Art Forum: Art Speech—A Symposium on Symposia, Day 2

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Fri, May 27, 2011


Saturday, May 21, 2011 9:30 AM This two-day program brings together artists, art historians, scholars, critics, writers, and speech and performance studies experts to discuss possible frameworks for better understanding issues surrounding art speech and methods for being direct and achieving clarity in spoken public presentations in the visual arts. The spoken public presentation is central in the field of the visual arts, particularly in the area of adult learning. Public program departments in museums operate based on a set of conventions regarding the way they present lectures or discussions about art involving artists, art historians, and/or theorists. Yet very little qualitative analysis has been conducted on the effectiveness of these presentations. Often times, public presentations are deemed impenetrable or obscure. What is communicated in writing cannot always be easily grasped when presented on stage. Using a variety of strategies, this year’s forum will seek to anatomize art historians' and artists' habits at the podium. Sessions will include reenactments of famous acts of criticism, critiques of the academic slide show, an investigation of the effects of apparently authoritative presentations, experiments in the effects of stage presence, and analyses of the academic introduction and of the performative. Program Schedule 9:30–10:00 a.m. Coffee and snacks 10:00 a.m.–12:30 p.m. Session 1 10:00–10:15 James Elkins discusses the philosophical and rhetorical problems with art speech 10:15–10:45 Christophe Cherix, Chief Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, The Museum of Modern Art, presents a film of Robert Morris's early performance work 21.3 (1964) 10:45–11:45 Donald Preziosi, Professor of Art History, University of California, Los Angeles, deconstructs one of his previous talks, followed by a conversation with James Elkins 11:45–12:30 Anna Kryczka, PhD candidate, Visual Studies, University of California, Irvine, talks about “Our Literal Speed,” with a response by Abbey Shane Dubin on behalf of “Our Literal Speed.” A conversation follows 12:30–12:45 p.m. Coffee break 12:45–1:20 p.m. Respondent's panel discussion Respondents: Charles Altieri, Professor of English, University of California, Berkley; Alexander Alberro, Virginia Bloedel Wright Professor of Art History, Barnard, Columbia University, New York; Pablo Helguera; and James Elkins 1:20–2:00 p.m. Q&A

Artists Speak: Conversations on Contemporary Art with Glenn D. Lowry Spotlight: Artists Set the Stage April 17, 2007 6:30 p.m. Artists break boundaries, working in a variety of mediums and blurring the lines between them. Since the early twentieth century, painters, sculptors, and filmmakers have gone beyond traditional visual art forms and taken their artistic process to the stage, collaborating as theater and opera directors and set designers. Through presentations and a conversation moderated by MoMA director Glenn D. Lowry, performance artist Laurie Anderson and William Kentridge—director and scene designer for BAM's spring production of Mozart's The Magic Flute—discuss how they bring their creative process to performance. Note: Laurie Anderson's comments are not included in the recording. Photo courtesy of Paula Court

Often basing his art on archival news footage and movie clips, he provokes viewers to evaluate the accuracy of their own memories of events in comparison to his modified version. Ezawa studied at D?sseldorf's Kunstakademie under Nam June Paik and at the San Francisco Art Institute. In this presentation Ezawa discusses paintings by C?zanne's The Bather and Ch?teau Noir, Marcel Duchamp's Bicycle Wheel, Kazimir Malevich's Suprematist Composition: White on White, Brancusi's Fish and Bird in Space, Giacometti's City Square and Dog, Martin Creed's Work No. 227, The Lights Going On And Off, and his own video, The Simpson Verdict.

Artists and Models: Josiah McElheny and Joshua Siegel

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Fri, Dec 03, 2010


March 12, 2007 6:00 p.m. For the exhibition Projects 84, Josiah McElheny creates a sculptural installation of crystalline glass, metal, and colored light that draws upon the visionary schemes of Paul Scheerbart, the Berlin poet and novelist, and Bruno Taut, the uncrowned leader of the circle of revolutionary architects that emerged in Berlin after World War I. McElheny’s model-scale landscape depicting two structures—an “Alpine Cathedral” and a “City-Crown”—is a critique of the utopian ideals embodied in twentieth-century modernism. This program, with McElheny and artist Chris Burden, focuses on the use of architecture in the sculptural model, through presentations and a discussion moderated by Joshua Siegel, organizer of the exhibition.

Art and Perception Series: Modalities of the Visible: Understanding and Sensing Images

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Fri, Dec 03, 2010


Art and Perception Series Modalities of the Visible: Understanding and Sensing Images April 5, 2008 4:00 p.m. This multidisciplinary series of discussions features prominent artists, art historians, scientists, conservators, and others as they provide a variety of perspectives on the complex process of experiencing art. Discussions explore the ways in which the perception of a single artwork evolves over time, how artists adopt optical and perceptive strategies as a means of influencing a particular sensorial experience, and the impact of recent scientific research and color theory on art and architecture. Understanding and engaging the viewer's senses and the ways in which they relate to the intellect is a common concern in art making today. To what extent is a viewer's intellectual and sensorial response predictable and/or malleable? How have artists and other image makers used this knowledge to create works with lasting impact? In this panel, prominent scholars discuss the psychology of the artistic experience, the ways in which artists have utilized theories of perception throughout history, and how a viewer's visual literacy and artistic enjoyment can be enhanced. Participants include John Hyman, Fellow and Praelector in Philosophy and Editor, The British Journal of Aesthetics, The Queen's College, UK, and Mih?ly Cs?kszentmih?lyi, psychologist and author of The Art of Seeing. This program is moderated by Leonard Lopate, host of The Leonard Lopate Show on WNYC. The Art and Perception Series is made possible by The Dana Foundation.

Thursday, February 11, 2010 12:30 PM Gabriel Orozco (Mexican, b. 1962) emerged at the beginning of the 1990s as one of the most intriguing and original artists of his generation—and one of the last to come of age in the twentieth century. He resists confinement to a single medium and deliberately blurs the boundaries between the art object and the everyday environment. This talk addresses the current MoMA exhibition and the artist’s merging of "art" and "reality.” Paulina Pobocha is a curatorial assistant in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at MoMA.

Shelly Silver

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Fri, Dec 03, 2010


September 24, 2008 12:30 p.m. Our social and political landscape has changed dramatically from 2001 to 2008. As a result, the November presidential election seems to be one of the most highly anticipated, eagerly awaited, and critically important in years. This fall's series invites artists working in film and photography who have their finger on the pulse, and are activating our perception of the relationship between politicians and our everyday lives. Shelly Silver, a New York–based artist who utilizes video, film, and photography, screens and discusses in complete world (2008), a feature-length documentary made up of street interviews done throughout New York City. Mixing political questions ("Are we responsible for the government we get?") with more broadly existential ones ("Do you feel you have control over your life?"), the film centers on the tension between individual and collective responsibility. in complete world can be seen as a user's manual for citizenship in the twenty-first century, as well as a glimpse into the opinions and self-perceptions of a diverse group of Americans. It is a testament to the people of New York City in this new millennium who freely offer thoughtful, provocative and at times tender revelations to a complete stranger, just because she asked. Silver currently teaches at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Art and Sciences and in the MFA Department of Photography, Video and Related Media, School of Visual Arts. Sally Berger, Assistant Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art, moderates a discussion. Note: Audio recordings of films shown during the program have been removed.

Brown Bag Lunch Lectures: Homage to New York: Jean Tinguely's Destructive Art

Author: Jean Tinguely
Fri, Dec 03, 2010


November 20, 2008 12:30 p.m. This lecture presents an overview of the critical reception to Jean Tinguely's Homage to New York (1960). Measuring approximately 27 x 30 feet and made of recycled metal scraps taken from a Newark dump, Homage to New York was a machine rigged to perform for half an hour and ultimately self-destruct in The Museum of Modern Art's Sculpture Garden. Hailed by the press as a "gadget to end all gadgets," Tinguely's work evoked somber and amusing responses. Some critics considered the Homage a critical comment on the threat of nuclear catastrophe while others deemed it pure entertainment. How are we to understand Tinguely's willful performance of destruction today? The lecture also includes discussion of contemporary artists who have taken up the Swiss artist's legacy as a means to register the violence that continues to define our present. Lecturer Kaira Caba?as (PhD, Princeton University) is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Department of Art History and Archaeology at Columbia University.

The Art Lending Service: Building an Audience for Modern Art

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Fri, Dec 03, 2010


December 4, 2008 12:30 p.m. In 1948, the Junior Council of The Museum of Modern Art, led by Blanchette Rockefeller, met to discuss the creation of an art lending library that would function as a forum to educate young collectors about modern art and that would allow the public to rent works of art. This early conception of an art lending library became the Art Lending Service (ALS) in 1951. In addition to renting artworks in the lending library, the ALS organized temporary exhibitions in the Museum's Penthouse Restaurant. Many of the Penthouse Exhibitions included works by emerging artists who would later become well known. This lecture focuses on the history of the ALS and will include discussion of archival objects such as photographs, brochures, invitations to events, sales cards, lending cards, and other related objects. MacKenzie Bennett (MA, Courtauld Institute of Art) is an assistant archivist in the Museum Archives at MoMA.

The Scroll and the Story of the Three Gorges

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Fri, Dec 03, 2010


December 07, 2009, 6:00 PM Almost every year, MoMA’s Library Council publishes a specially printed artist’s book to explore the genre and to benefit the Library and Museum Archives. This year, as an alternative form of artist’s book, the Council has cast a hand-printed and mounted scroll by artist Yun-Fei Ji. The scroll addresses the damaging impact of China’s Three Gorges Dam, the construction of which has had devastating effects on the Chinese landscape and displaced over one million people living in that area near the Yangtze River. On the occasion of the publication, MoMA presents this program exploring the artistic, social, and cultural meanings of and responses to this site. Jonathan Spence, Sterling Professor of History Emeritus, Yale University, addresses the history of both the river and the scroll form, and how reading and visualization may be understood as an extended spatial experience. Wu Hung, Professor, Department of Art History, and Director, Center for the Art of East Asia, University of Chicago, presents a brief overview of the art, history, and politics of the river and considers the work of several contemporary artists, including Yun-Fei Ji, who have documented or interpreted the social, environmental, and historical loss associated with the dam. Finally, Sarah Suzuki, The Sue and Eugene Mercy, Jr., Assistant Curator of Prints and Illustrated Books, The Museum of Modern Art, and Yun-Fei Ji engage in a discussion about his collaborations with a long-established Chinese woodblock printer and maker of scrolls.

Conceptual Art and Photography: James Welling in Conversation with Jan Dibbets

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Fri, Dec 03, 2010


October 5, 2009, 6:30 P.M. Many artists include photography in their work, but they very often do so using a non-traditional approach. Dutch artist Jan Dibbets does not consider himself a photographer, although he has used the process extensively in his conceptually based work since the 1960s. James Welling, on the contrary, manipulates many of the technical elements of the medium, like light filters, and turns others, such as screens and gelatin, into the subjects of his work. Following an introduction by Anne Rorimer, independent scholar and curator, the artists discuss their varying approaches to conceptual art and photography with Christophe Cherix, Curator, Department of Prints and Illustrated Books, The Museum of Modern Art, and organizer of the exhibition In & Out of Amsterdam: Travels in Conceptual Art, 1960–1976.

Who's a Filmmaker? Cinema beyond the Darkened Room

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Fri, Dec 03, 2010


Wednesday, May 6, 2009. 6:30 PM This program examines the fluidity of boundaries in film. Art and film critics and museum curators address the idea of cinema in the art world, where attitudes toward the moving image seem to differ from those toward "movies." Eleanor Heartney, contributing editor to Art in America and Artpress, addresses how artists borrow and manipulate actual cinematic works for different ends and how they use and subvert cinematic techniques, and Amy Taubin, film critic, discusses the construction of the temporal and social experiences in both a traditional cinematic environment and in art installations. Laurence Kardish, Senior Curator, Department of Film, and organizer of the exhibition, moderates a conversation.

Joan Mir?'s Influence on Graphic Design

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Fri, Dec 03, 2010


Reflecting upon the recent exhibition Joan Mir?: Painting and Anti-Painting 1927–1937, this lecture explores the profound influence that Mir?'s unconventional painting, collage, and assemblage techniques have had on graphic design in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. Celebrated American graphic designer Paul Rand, for example, consistently utilized Mir?'s oeuvre as a point of departure for creative design assignments for students. Through a comparison of Mir?'s works with those of Rand and other designers, this lecture considers how Mir?'s revolutionary approach effectively altered the formal language of communication design. Lecturer Marianne Eggler, (MPhil, The Graduate Center, City University of New York) is a historian of art, architecture, and design. She is completing her doctorate at The Graduate Center and is currently a lecturer at Parsons The New School of Design, CUNY John Jay College, and The Museum of Modern Art.

From Tenements to the Taylor Homes: The High Rise and Decline of Low-Income Housing in America

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Thu, Mar 17, 2011


Housing crises repeatedly plagued poor, often minority Americans during the twentieth century, from overcrowded, unsanitary speculative tenement buildings to crime-ridden high-rise public housing projects. The architectural failings of much low-income housing, such as inadequate ventilation, deficient plumbing, shoddy construction, and insensitive site planning, were usually accompanied by even more spectacular social failings—racism, sexism, and xenophobia are all written into the history of public housing, even if inadvertently. For example, the design of modern "tower in a park" housing projects ostensibly provided more light, air, and open space to the urban poor, but the oversized, monotonous buildings and surrounding vacant land also stigmatized the residents by identifying their economic status and isolating them from "normal" society. This lecture investigates the successes and failures of various low-income housing types—from row houses to tenements to high-rise towers—and suggests ways in which their architectural design, tenant selection processes, and associated legislation like slum clearance institutionalized and perpetuated certain social values and prejudices. Lecturer Jennifer Gray (Ph.D. Candidate, Columbia University) is writing her dissertation on the relationship between socio-political reform and the architecture of Chicago designer Dwight Perkins from 1893 to 1918. She has been a lecturer at The Museum of Modern Art since 2004.

Dissonant Abstraction

Author: MoMA, The Museum of Modern Art
Mon, Oct 21, 2013


In conjunction with the MoMA exhibition Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925, Bang on a Can presents a pair of concerts that reveal how pioneering European composers of 100 years ago forever changed the music in New York. Each concert pairs two composers—an early-20th-century innovator, and a New Yorker they influenced. The music is performed by alumni and faculty of the Bang on a Can Summer Music Festival at MASS MoCA, a program dedicated entirely to the creation, study, and performance of the most adventurous music of our time. This second evening in the series features one of Arnold Schoenberg's shortest, oddest, most intense pieces, Herzgew?chse, a shockingly expressive vocal miniature originally written for Vasily Kandinsky's journal The Blue Rider. Morton Feldman's meditative work Three Voices, for solo voice and two prerecorded solo voices, a luxurious, introspective setting of a poem by Frank O'Hara, has a much slower tempo than the Schoenberg piece, but is ultimately no less intense.
