Sample Reflection Essay Paper on The Museum of Modern Art Virtual Visit

I chose to visit The Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) virtually. The Museum of Modern
Art (MoMA) may currently be inaccessible to everyone, yet I learnt that 'visitors' can find out
what is happening on at the exhibition every night of Thursday and virtually daily, thanks to its
Virtual Views series of virtual visits. This paper gives an explicit explanation of my experience
during the virtual tour along with analyzing three arts into more detail.
The MoMA has succeeded in digitizing many of its collections by using a collection of
paintings, high quality photographs of each item and instructions, a variety of well labelled
instructions for every display, gallery, and descriptions with archivists and designers. You need
not to worry if you did not visit Manhattan Museum since they closed down following
unresolved pandemic issues on March 13. Everything can now be done virtually.
The stage design of Sophie Taueber-Arp is the first piece of art I am going to analyze. It
is in the category of modern art. In 1918, she constructed marionettes and stage sets for a puppet
development of the 18th century film "King Stag". I found this fascinating since I love watching
films. The faces of the marionettes were decorated by Taeuber like oceanic masks and used
turned woods to construct their bodies. Some were clothed in ruffled tulle, others were adorned
with feathers, and the sets were decorated with abstract grid designs. The interest of Dada in the
psychoanalysis developments I have not examined myself and can no longer withstand it!

The second piece of art is Dada. It belongs to the category of Sophie Taeuber. I was
happy to learn that Zurich was the artistic capital of the European avant-garde during World War
I. The city was home to the Cabaret Voltaire, a nightclub where, in reaction to the brutal war,
Dada was released in 1916. Dada sought to explode traditional conceptions of how art could be
created and interpreted and what resources should be used, launched as an all-out attack against
the laws of art and the norms of everyday life.
The last art work to analyze is an image of Dada art. It belongs to the category of Dada. It
was interesting to learn that it was crafted by a woman. She created a series of turned wood
sculptures between 1918 and 1920 that she named "displays." But their oval – shaped and
paintings portray mask-like faces that are not close to naturalistic. This particular head was
possibly created by Taeuber as a self-portrait. Colorfully, she adorns herself swirls of string, like
carnations threaded with purple and green jewels that emerge from her ears like roses.
Two exhibits that can be thoroughly explored from the comfort of your sofa are of special
note to architectural design enthusiasts; Neri Oxman: Material Ecology, a review of the work of
architect, artist, and material scientist, and Judd, a blow-out survey of the work, publications, and
legacy of sculptor Donald Judd.
The use of colorful designs captured my attention while looking at the photos. It is not
equal to seeing the show directly to be able to visit the now abandoned corridors of the MoMA,
much of the intensity of Judd’s work stems from seeing the simple, clean ways in which he
worked in person to better appreciate their use of colored light. Everything looked spectacular.
The "Reading Judd" segment is of specific importance, where Temkin, chief curator of art and
architecture for Henry Kravis, joins curatorial assistant for painting and design Tamar and Pablo,

coordinator of adult and academic programs, to review Judd's published works depicting him as
an "actor, individual and creator."
The Neri Oxman virtual tour is just as detailed, but the impression of scale crafted by the
big chunks that combine the sharp edge of digital manufacturing and material science is lost to
digital members. However, what one lacks in perspective, one benefit from four individual parts
in the audio guides of Neri herself taking guests through the design phase. While we may not be
able to see in person the monumental Silk Pavilion II, Neri is happy to talk about it wherever you
may be.
The immersive video display of Home Videos is also interesting, where the museum will
continue to offer gems from its collections along with talks and information. I was glad to
discover that while the Virtual Views calendar will end at the end of May, the museum plans to
launch a new suite of immersive concerts and festivals to be held in June. Virtual tour to MoMA
was a very fascinating endeavor.
