MoMA/ModPo combo webcast, June 11, 2020, at 11 AM (eastern US time)
Save the date! On Thursday, June 11, at 11 AM (eastern U.S. time) ModPo and MoMA (the Museum of Modern Art in New York City) will be kicking off a collaboration with a live webcast that will bring together participants in ModPo and participants in MoMA’s photography MOOC currently running.
Please mark your calendars! We will soon send more details and a link to the YouTube page where you will be able to watch the live-stream (and, later, the recording of the session.)
Sarah Meister (MoMA’s curator of photography) and several of her colleagues will join four or five of us from the ModPo team.
The current show at MoMA features the photographs of Dorothea Lange.
During our webcast will be focus our discussion on one of Lange’s photographs and one poem by a communist Depression-era poet. We will together do a close looking and a close reading of the poem and the photograph.
As usual our webcast will be interactive. You’ll be able to call in, post questions via Twitter, YouTube comment stream, and in a special discussion forum thread. More info coming soon.
