PRINT September 2002


On the morning of June 23, some 150 people (the ranks would swell to 300), several dogs, a horse, three modern masterworks (in replica, of course), and one Kiki Smith, borne aloft by the throng, marched across the Queensboro Bridge. Organized in cooperation with the Museum of Modern Art and the Public Art Fund, Francis Alÿs’s The Modern Procession marked MoMA’s temporary move from its Manhattan base to Long Island City, Queens.
