The world’s leading museum of modern art is replete with online viewing rooms, curated playlists, artist talks, readings and international exhibitions – many of which are accessible online

Here’s our edit of the best picks for a virtual or in-person trip through the must-see museum.

Taking place in the Marie-Josée and Henry Kravis Studio, catch a re-run of the live Q&A with Shuzo or listen to a neo-rave playlist curated by NYC-producer Miho Hatori.
