Educator Journal: In the Making—On the Line

In the Making On the Line workshop

Teaching artist Mark Epstein has been running our In the Making—On the Line workshops this fall. Through studio activities and in-gallery discussions, he and the teens have been exploring the different definitions of what a line can be, while looking at the various ways in which the artists in the Abstract Expressionist New York and On Line shows have tried to express themselves through this most basic of forms. For this journal, Mark gets in-depth about a very unconventional drawing activity that he created with his students. Read more

It Takes a Village to Create an Exhibition…App

An interview with Jay Levenson, Director, International Program, The Museum of Modern Art

In 1952, The Museum of Modern Art established the International Program of Circulating Exhibitions, which was supported by a grant from the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, with the aim of sending exhibitions to museums around the world. The following year, the International Council was organized to provide long-term financial support to the program.

Amy Horschak: In light of MoMA’s upcoming installation Abstract Expressionist New York and the exhibition of many of the “AbEx” artists abroad by the International Program (IP) in the 1950s, can you comment on the often-made claims that the IP was, at that time, part of a CIA project? Read more
