Join ArtTable for an exclusive curator-led tour of The Long Run at the Museum of Modern Art, with Paulina Pobocha, associate curator, and Cara Manes, assistant curator, who organized this collection exhibition in consultation with their department head, Ann Temkin, chief curator of painting and sculpture.

The Long Run present an alternative viewpoint to MoMA's collection and the history of modern art. Typically, MoMA's collection galleries have spotlighted the breakthrough moments of artist's career, spotlighting these climaxes of creative genius. In The Long Run, however, Paulina Pobocha and Cara Manes work with Ann Tempkin to explore the whole picture, choosing instead to focus on the experimental to suggest "that invention results from sustained critical thinking, persistent observation, and countless hours in the studio. "

This exhibition highlights the careers of many prominent female artists, and this tour will focus on the works of women, such as Lee Bontecou, Joan Jonas, Helen Levitt, Elizabeth Murray and Georgia O’Keeffe.
