This agora is led by Paula Stuttman.

In ancient Greece, the agora was a public, outdoor gathering place where people learned by discussing moral, social, cultural, and political questions. At MoMA, Agoras are an opportunity to question and examine our relationships with art, design, and society. How does communication take place among artists, institutions, and viewers? How is this changing? Technological advancements have always revolutionized the way we connect with each other. Communication technology has also has a profound impact on the way art is made and experienced. Considering contemporary advancements of social media, personal smart devices, and artificial intelligence, this Agora series asks about the current state and possible futures of communication, in art and in our daily lives.
