This event has ended.

Dorothy Miller (1904–2003) served as a curator at the Museum of Modern Art from 1942 to 1963 and produced a series of key exhibitions, including "Twelve Americans, Fourteen Americans, and Fifteen Americans," that brought wide attention to a new generation of artists. The international touring exhibition “New American Painting” (1958–9) presented canvases by Sam Francis, Grace Hartigan, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Jackson Pollock, Mark Rothko, and Clyfford Still. This lecture will focus on how her curatorial choices and the Museum of Modern Art’s promotion of these exhibitions relate to the rebuilding of culture in the US and abroad in the postwar period.
