Looking at modern art through the lens of different themes can reveal surprising connections and new insights. In our new online course, "Modern Art & Ideas," we explore four themes we often use when teaching at The Museum of Modern Art: Places and Spaces, Art and Identity, Transforming Everyday Objects, Art and Society.
Art may be found in museums, but it almost never begins there. Discover some of the different ways that artists represent place and use materials from their environment, as seen in works by Vincent van Gogh, Piet Mondrian and Gordon Matta-Clark.
In this short film, see how artists Frida Kahlo, Glenn Ligon, and Andy Warhol investigate and express ideas about identity in their work.
Many artists use or combine everyday objects to challenge assumptions about what constitutes “art” and how it should be made. Learn how Marcel Duchamp, Meret Oppenheim, and Robert Rauschenberg did the same with a bicycle wheel and a stool, a teacup, and a bed.
"There is no such thing as an apolitical or inert artwork." — Felix Gonzalez-Torres. In this short film, see how Dorothea Lange, Martha Rosler, and Felix Gonzalez-Torres responded to the social, cultural and political issues of their time.
