From Tenements to the Taylor Homes: The High Rise and Decline of Low-Income Housing in America

James Welling, on the contrary, manipulates many of the technical elements of the medium, like light filters, and turns others, such as screens and gelatin, into the subjects of his work.

Join artists Tino Sehgal and Lee Mingwei as they discuss their practice. Glenn D. Lowry, director of The Museum of Modern Art, moderates a discussion....

Contemporary Wunderkammern: Collecting and Museums as Art
Whether we collect fire trucks, civil war items, or Flemish moths, the act of collecting can be an artistic gesture in and of itself. This lecture explores the work of artists who incorporate museum-like practices, such as collecting and creating museum narratives of their collections and turning spaces into literal or conceptual cabinets of curiosities, into their work.
