THIRTEEN’s NYC-ARTS to Feature A Conversation with Glenn Lowry, Director of The Museum of Modern Art

Air date: 10/03/2019

THIRTEEN’s NYC-ARTS to Feature A Conversation with Glenn Lowry, Director of The Museum of Modern Art Lowry will discuss the museum’s expansion and reopening in an October 31 segment

 

On October 31, NYC-ARTS will feature the program’s co-host and New York Emmy winner Philippe de Montebello in conversation with Glenn Lowry, director of The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).

Lowry became the sixth director of MoMA in 1995. In his tenure, Lowry has continued the museum’s legacy of enriching public life through exhibitions, educational programs, publications and digital tools that challenge conventional ideas about Modern and Contemporary art and design, while establishing initiatives that bring MoMA’s renowned collection and research to audiences worldwide.

The interview coincides with MoMA’s reopening on October 21. In the interview, Lowry will discuss the re-installation of the museum’s galleries following the four-month overhaul that began in June. The renovation creates 40,000 square feet of additional space, allowing the museum significantly more room to exhibit art in new and interdisciplinary ways.

NYC-ARTS, THIRTEEN’s weekly arts and culture multi-platform showcase, brings arts lovers an all-access pass to the interesting, unusual and unique cultural offerings of the greater New York City region.

Co-hosted by New York Emmy Award winners Philippe de Montebello and Paula Zahn, NYC-ARTS showcases both world-renowned and local, community-based arts organizations.
