Now you can visit New York’s most famous museum online for virtual exhibitions
When will we be able to visit an art exhibition again? No one knows but, meanwhile, we can join online events dedicated to us, art lovers.
Following the lockdown, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York reopened its doors to audiences from all around the world thanks to Virtual Views: every Thursday, via their website, we can visit an exhibition or a favorite artwork from the museum’s collection through video stories, curator Q&As, audio playlist and feature articles.
The project started at the beginning of April (with the virtual film exhibition Home Movies) and will follow through May.
From April 16 you can visit the exhibition dedicated to French art critic, publisher and collector Félix Fénéon (1861-1944), a little-known figure who contributed to the development of Modernism. A fervent anarchist, he promoted the group of artists led by George-Pierre Seurat and coined the term “Neo-Impressionism” to identify them.
Virtual Views will continue on April 23, with an exhibition dedicated to sculptor Donald Judd (1928-1994), and on April 30 with an event covering the work of the photographer Dorothea Lange (1895-1965).
May events to be announced soon.
