As an onsite program, Tuesday Evenings at the Modern is on hold during the COVID-19 pandemic. Being There: Tuesday Evenings with the Modern is a unique and relevant online alternative, the museum said in a news release.
Each presenter has been invited by a past Tuesday Evenings at the Modern participant to give a presentation on a topic of their choice.

The talks offer an array of perspectives in a moment when people are anxious to connect, share knowledge, and learn from each other as we strive to improve and expand our understanding of ourselves and the world through the arts, the museum said.

The Being There: Tuesday Evenings with the Modern format will allow for a live experience, with questions and discussion following each 30-minute presentation. Free registration will be available one week in advance at www.themodern.org/programs/lectures

A recording will be available two weeks after the presentation on the Modern’s Youtube Channel or at www.themodern.org/podcasts
