Lauder Research Center for Modern Art has launched the Digital Archives Initiative (DAI), a new project developed through partnerships with institutions and artists’ estates worldwide, and in collaboration with the Museum’s Digital Department. Through the initiative, rare documents and materials related to modern art that are largely unknown or inaccessible are made available online.
