A new web series illustrating what happens behind the scenes of the NY MoMA
‘At The Museum’, a new docuseries unveiling the backstage of the world’s most prestigious contemporary art museum
At The Museum is a new 8-episode web series by the New York MoMA revealing the backstage of one of the most prominent art museums in the world
‘At The Museum’ is the title of the new web series produced by the New York MoMA to tell every art lover what happens behind the scenes of one of the most prominent museums in the world. An institution established 88 years ago that today owns almost 200.000 works of art.
New York waking up at dawn, a painting by Van Gogh in an empty hall, Mondrian, Magritte, Monet, Picasso, a person from the cleaning staff touching up a wall, a painting by Signac being removed from the wall and carefully placed into a big shipping crate, a work by Rothko checked up into the tiniest detail. And then, the first visitors, the maquette of an upcoming exhibition project, set ups and dismantling, renovations and packaging. All of this is contained in the 10 minutes shooting of the docuseries’ first episode, titled Shipping & Receiving and shot while the NY museum was preparing to send about 200 artworks to the Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris for the exhibition Être moderne, le MoMa à Paris, currently on show.
The series shows the museum’s most private face, all the stages to deal with before the opening of a new exhibition, but also the way the world’s most important museum of modern art is managed; what kind of professionals work within its walls, and how. This, and much more, is revealed in the 8 episodes aired by the MoMA on its own YouTube channel every Friday – only the first four have been online until now. The series is part of the NY museum’s big project aiming to employ the Web as a means to be more open to the public. The MoMA has recently digitized and made available online over 76.000 items from its own collection, besides making accessible the pictures of almost every exhibition organized since 1929.
