"Lincoln Kirstein’s Modern"

(Mar. 17-Jun. 15) — “I have a live eye,” proclaimed Lincoln Kirstein, signaling his wide-ranging vision. "Lincoln Kirstein’s Modern" explores this polymath’s sweeping contributions to American cultural life in the 1930s and ’40s. Best known for cofounding New York City Ballet and the School of American Ballet with George Balanchine, Kirstein (1907–1996), a writer, critic, curator, impresario and tastemaker, was also a key figure in MoMA’s early history. With his prescient belief in the role of dance within the museum, his championing of figuration in the face of prevailing abstraction, and his position at the center of a New York network of queer artists, intimates, and collaborators, Kirstein’s impact remains profoundly resonant today.

Bringing together nearly 300 rarely seen artworks alongside materials drawn from the Museum’s archives, the exhibition illuminates Kirstein’s influence on the Museum’s collecting, exhibition and publication history. 

Open 10:30 am–5:30pm seven days a week. Open until 8pm on Fridays.
