The Contemporary and Modern Art Perspectives (C-MAP) research groups periodically organize a seminar between all four groups that connect their broad research interests and enable members to think more deeply about how the Museum might best address a global view of modern and contemporary art. Hinged on the transversal as a means to engage with and envision new networks and ways of thinking about modern and contemporary art, this year’s edition offers an exploration and interrogation of the intertwinings of multiple coeval lifeworlds through concepts of “extending across.”
Acts of Transfer and the Repertoire
Thursday, June 3, 9–11 AM EST
Introduced by Roxana Marcoci, Senior Curator, Photography, MoMA
This panel is organized around the idea of the transversal as transfer between disciplines, geographies, the performer, audience and participants, and/or the professional and non-professional. By looking at and considering the “repertoire” and acts of transfer through, for instance, translation and embodied dialogue, “hidden” processes of transnational contact and local histories, new cartographies and unseen relations will come into evidence.
