The Scroll and the Story of the Three Gorges
December 07, 2009, 6:00 PM Almost every year, MoMA’s Library Council publishes a specially printed artist’s book to explore the genre and to benefit the Library and Museum Archives.

Conceptual Art and Photography: James Welling in Conversation with Jan Dibbets
October 5, 2009, 6:30 P.M. Many artists include photography in their work, but they very often do so using a non-traditional approach. Dutch artist Jan Dibbets does not consider himself a photographer, although he has used the process extensively in his conceptually based work since the 1960s. 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. Following an introduction...

Gabriel Orozco
Thursday, February 11, 2010 12:30 PM Gabriel Orozco (Mexican, b. 1962) emerged at the beginning of the 1990s as one of the most intriguing and original artists of his generation—and one of the last to come of age in the twentieth century. He resists confinement to a single medium and deliberately blurs the boundaries between the art object and the everyday environment. This talk addresses the current MoMA exhibition and the artist’s merging of "art" and "reality.” Paulina Pobocha is a curatorial a...
