These nine museums are using online video series to take viewers behind the scenes of their collections.
Watch Alexander Calder’s kinetic sculptures in rare activations through videos shared by the Whitney Museum of American Art.
Albrecht Dürer’s “Triumphal Arch” is one of the largest prints ever made, and after a century on view at the British Museum, its conservation was a colossal task.
The Digital Penn Museum is a new portal to thousands of objects, videos, lectures, and other archives of the institution for archaeology and anthropology.
TUCSON, Ariz. — Underrepresentation of marginalized and minority communities in society is nothing new; neither is it in the art world.
Arriving with dance and music, draped in orange and pink flowers, the dead keep constant company in Varanasi, India, where cremations happen by the hundred each day on the Ganges River.
Zero Tolerance at MoMA PS1 tackles an ambitiously broad subject: the intersection between protest and art.
Despite their important role in strengthening cultures and communities, languages are fragile things.
It made immediate sense to me that an artist who had cut her teeth making video works was able to transpose their sense of social commentary onto her formal works.
It takes a lot of work to carve a sculpture, but apparently muppets have all the strength it takes.
