Ten-Minute Talk: Collective Task at Print Studio

As part of Print Studio, we offer a weekly series of short talks focusing on issues related to the medium of print and the sustainability of ideas within the context of modern and contemporary art. During these Ten-Minute Talks, a variety of MoMA staff—from conservators to librarians and archivists—as well as guest artists and educators, share their expertise, offering insight on a variety of topics and a special behind-the-scenes look at MoMA’s engagement with the medium of print and selected Print Studio projects.

This week poet Robert Fitterman discusses the ongoing Collective Task project and its re-imagined version for Print Studio. In this entertaining video, Fitterman is in conversation with Lanny Jordan Jackson, the current curator of the Collective Task project.

We encourage you to create a print in response to this week’s task, adapted from Lisa Sanditz’s original task:  “Make something while honoring the spirit of Freecycle. That is, all materials used in the project must be used, borrowed and bartered.”

Typically when drawing, painting, or printmaking an artist uses a few different materials such as paper or canvas, as well as ink, pencils, or paint.… what if all you needed to make your print was your smart phone or another gadget with a creative drawing app installed? Read more

Contemporary Artists on Abstract Expressionist New York

Artist Amy Sillman as she begins her talk in the Abstract Expressionist New York exhibition.

When we visit MoMA we expect to see works of art made by artists, but seldom do we hear firsthand from the artists themselves about the works on display—while we stand directly in front of them! The recently concluded series Abstract Expressionist New York: Artist-Led Gallery Talks offered MoMA visitors this unique opportunity. Read more

Modern Poets: The Political Line

Gyula Kosice. Escultura Movil Articulada (Mobile Articulated Sculpture). 1948

Next Wednesday, February 2, MoMA will present another iteration of Modern Poets, our long-running series of readings and performances in which poets and writers reflect upon modern and contemporary art and culture. This program is presented in conjunction with the exhibition On Line: Drawing Through the Twentieth Century, which explores the transformation of drawing, the potential of mark making, and line and gesture through diverse mediums. Taking the concept of the political line as a point of departure, we have invited a group of international poets selected by Chilean-born poet Cecilia Vicuña—who will also read from her own collection of poems—to share their reflections on this extended notion, as it relates to them personally or to the world more universally.
