Which artists will stand the test of time—and who decides? A new exhibition “Collecting Stories: A Mid-Century Experiment” examines a short-lived moment in the MFA’s history when the Museum launched a trial initiative to acquire contemporary American art. Join exhibition curator Zoë Samels to explore issues of legacy and taste, probing how artists were perceived in their own time and beyond, as well as the role that museums play in the development of artists’ reputations.
