Gary Tinterow, the chief curator of modern and contemporary art at the Metropolitan Museum, discusses collection sharing, acquiring art from Latin America, renovation of the Wallace Wing, negotiations to lease the Whitney’s Breuer building, and more.
MoMA’s new installation of its post-1960 collection seeks relevance in current affairs, but for the institition to advance it must look beyond the United States and Europe and extend its intellectual purview to Asia, India, Latin America, the Middle East and Africa. To neglect to do so is a form of cultural trade protectionism that will leave the museum behind the great globalist trend of the 21st century.
