MOMA Presents an Introduction to Contemporary Art
Explore art that bewilders, confronts, amazes, and inspires, and consider the current global artscape in its historical and social contexts. Major works and movements in painting, photography, sculpture, and performance will be examined. A specially trained Museum lecturer from The Museum of Modern Art will engage participants through extensive verbal descriptions of the artwork and in the creative process.
