Inventing Abstraction at MoMA
Friday, January 18, 2013
Leah Dickerman, Curator in the Department of Painting and Sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, talks about the exhibition “Inventing Abstraction, 1910-1925.” Commemorating the centennial of invention of abstraction, the exhibition brings together over 350 works—including paintings, drawings, prints, books, sculptures, films, photographs, recordings, and dance pieces—to offer a sweeping survey of a radical moment when the rules of art making were fundamentally transformed.
Q2 Music, WQXR's online contemporary classical station, is presenting a unique musical installation. "Reinventing Music, 1910-1925" is an enclosed space in the MoMA galleries where visitors can listen to forward-looking music composed between 1910 and 1925, including works by Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Debussy, and Ives.
