NGV Event: MoMA AND THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS: Lecture Series

14 Jul 2018
  • Melbourne

ASA is delighted to share NGV’s following series of lectures in July, presented by Prof. Chris McAuliffe:

MoMA AND THE CITY THAT NEVER SLEEPS: LECTURE SERIES

In the decades since its founding in 1929, The Museum of Modern Art’s (MoMA) collecting choices and methods of display and interpretation have played a role in establishing a canonical narrative of modern art. Explore the artists, museum personnel and patrons who contributed to MoMA’s versions of modernism, and the ways in which MoMA has adapted as art and the world have changed.

Presenter, Prof. Chris McAuliffe, one of ASA’s esteemed lecturers, leads our art tours to the USA. Chris is currently Professor of Art (Practice-led research) at the School of Art & Design, Australian National University and former Director of the Ian Potter Museum of Art, the University of Melbourne.
