The Museum of Modern Art Archives has long recognized the value of oral history as a fundamental way to capture gaps in the written record, preserve the firsthand recollections of the individual in his or her own voice, and enrich the work of scholars and curators. To date, the Archives has created over 100 oral histories. The tabs below provide further information, video excerpts, and transcripts for various parts of the Oral History Program. In addition, you can review a comprehensive listing of oral histories. Researchers can consult transcripts and/or selected extended artists' filmed interviews during an appointment in the Archives' Manhattan reading room. For more information, check Visit the Archives.
