MoMA's Streaming Audio

The Museum of Modern Art is stockpiling an impressive audio component on their website. Comprised of lectures, commentaries, conversations and visual descriptions, these streaming podcasts provide diverse insights into a variety of both canonical and contemporary artists. Below are a few examples of some of the podcasts I listened to:

Robert Smithson. Corner Mirror with Coral.1969

Claes Oldenburg. Giant Soft Fan. 1966–67

Nicholas Nixon. The Brown Sisters. 1993

Marlene Dumas. Chlorosis (Love Sick). 1994

These are just a few of the examples of available podcasts on the MoMA website. I would highly recommend checking out some of the other content here, here and here.
