ModPo/MoMA Webseries

ModPo and the MoMA are teaming up to offer a live webcast! The webcast will feature a discussion of Dorothea Lange’s photograph “White Angel Breadline” (1933) and the Edwin Rolfe poem “Season of Death” (1935). 

Shortly after launching a Dorothea Lange exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, all museums closed down for COVID-19. In response, the MoMA launched a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to allow people to experience the Lange exhibit from the safety of their homes. Currently, their MOOC has over 300,000 people enrolled.

The interactive discussion will be led in conjunction with the ModPo team and MoMA’s curator of photography Sarah Meister as well as several of her colleagues. 

Join this interactive discussion via YouTube Live Stream June 11, 2020, at 11 AM (Eastern US time).
