Co-presented by The Museum of Modern Art and The Center for Ballet and the Arts at New York University, in conjunction with the MoMA exhibition Lincoln Kirstein’s Modern, this event delves into the prodigious diaries Kirstein kept as he contributed to American cultural life in the 1920s and ’30s. Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director, the Public Theater, reads selections from these diaries, which speak to topics ranging from ballet to visual art, and touch on issues around institution-building and identity. A panel discussion expanding on subjects raised in the writings follows, with perspectives offered by Nicholas Jenkins, Kirstein’s literary executor; curator and historian Kevin Moore; and writer Claudia Roth Pierpoint.
