Rome’s Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna was created in 1883 to house the contemporary works of art of the newly unified Italian state.
Mary Litton has lived in the DC area for over 12 years, and after an exciting career in public and international relations, she exchanged her gowns and glitz for jeans and playground shoes to stay home and raise her two young children. The National Gallery of Art can be an intimidating venture for most amateurs, much less for a couple of moms with a group of potty training tots, but my friends and I were determined to spend a morning surrounded by artwork that consisted of more than crayons and glitter glue. We made it through the entire scavenger hunt before the first game of who touched whom broke out.  We immediately bee-lined for the outside sculpture garden for a picnic. Have any of you taken your kids to the National Gallery of Art?  Do you have any suggestions to add to our trip? But when the news finally broke Wednesday, the vacuousness of the idea was there for all to see.The fantasy is that the federal museum will be lending its expertise in exhibitions, research and programming to MOCA. When it comes to the art of the recent past, MOCA is a bona fide star and the Washington institution a bit player.


MOCA would be lending its prestige to the National Gallery, not the other way around.The collaborative idea, which includes zero financial support, apparently means to stick a Good Housekeeping seal of approval on the struggling contemporary museum. If MOCA's leaders are so confused about the relative merits of the two institutions and what is needed to move forward, no wonder its troubles have dragged on for the last five years.The partnership idea was initiated by MOCA board member Eli Broad, the billionaire collector who is opening his own art museum downtown in 2014, across the street from MOCA. His National Gallery counterpart, board chairman John Wilmerding told The Times, "The hope is that our name, our programming, our expertise gives [MOCA] a sense of backbone and stability."Backbone? With all due respect to Wilmerding, it is probably a poor idea to begin a partnership by publicly dissing the other party as effectively spineless. Especially since it's absurd to imagine that the National Gallery has any useful expertise in contemporary art to offer.The National Gallery is a wonderful museum a€” if Old Master European, 19th century American or classic Modern painting and sculpture of the early 20th century are what you want. But the last substantial show of contemporary art I felt compelled to travel there to see was a Willem de Kooning painting survey a€” in 1994. Art of the last half-century is a minor diversion at the NGA.Partly that's because the Smithsonian's Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden stands right across the National Mall, and international contemporary art is the Hirshhorn's chief concern.


The NGA does next to nothing with recent art, except for photographs and the occasional retrospective of an established, blue-chip American painter or sculptor from the 1950s or 1960s.Take a look at the museum's online tour of its Modern and contemporary collection, which features one 1971 sculpture but nothing else from after 1962. The National Gallery has a department of Modern art, which begins in the 19th century, but nothing remotely close to a staff specializing in the diversity of global art in our time. Perhaps it's appropriate for the federal institution to hold back in that area, but it doesn't mean the museum has any capacity for leadership in a field about which it has virtually no demonstrable expertise.MOCA, meanwhile, has built an international reputation on a savvy post-1945 exhibition program that uncovers forgotten histories or revises established ones with fresh scholarship and surprising insights. It's also the reason two of Europe's leading contemporary museums a€” the Stedelijk in Amsterdam and the Ludwig in Cologne a€” are now directed by former MOCA curators, who left as the institutional problems mounted.The arrangement with the National Gallery, which might be formally announced next week, is actually rather sad a€” a throwback to the early 1980s, when MOCA was just a novel idea still being birthed.
