Do you like this story?
I very much enjoyed the last of the "Director's Conversation Series" that I attended and I would bet this one will be just as entertaining and insightful. If you can fit it into your schedule, I recommend you giving it a try. If for some reason or another you can not make it, I would guess you may be able to catch it at a later date on the IMA's new ArtBabble.org video site. If you have not already, be sure to check it out as well. Hours upon hours of great videos on art and artists. Hope to see a good number of you at the Toby tomorrow night.
Director’s Conversation Series: MoMA’s Moves
Thursday, April 9
at the IMA's Tobias Theater
from the IMA's site:
Three and a half years after an $858 million capital campaign and major expansion in midtown Manhattan, The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) continues to extend its global influence on public reception of the art of this and the last century.
Glenn D. Lowry, Director of MoMA since 1995, joins Maxwell L. Anderson, The Melvin & Bren Simon Director and CEO of the IMA, in a public conversation about MoMA’s plans for the future, and how art museums are confronting globalization, new economic pressures, and rising expectations to serve a multiplicity of needs. Lowry will candidly share his experiences in keeping MoMA at the center of a new art world that has fewer headquarters and more outposts internationally.
A couple more worthwhile talks coming up at the IMA this month:
After Love, After Punk: Takashi Murakami and the Contemporary Japanese Dreamscape Thursday, April 23 | 7:00 pm
Director’s Conversation Series: A New Guggenheim
Thursday, April 30 | 7:00 pm
