The center has opened at a critical juncture in the afterlife of modernism Hi would you explain this phrase? ''The center has opened at a critical juncture in the afterlife of modernism'' The recently established Center for the Technical Study of Modern Art at Harvard has been set up to grapple with the distinctive challenges posed by the art of the last century. Under the directorship of Carol Mancusi-Ungaro, the center will provide a road map to future conservators and a resource for scholars seeking to understand how works of modern art were made. (She has also been appointed director of conservation at the Whitney Museum of Art, which will be a partner in the Harvard project.). The center has opened at a critical juncture in the afterlife of modernism. ''Establishing the center became urgent because these artists are disappearing,'' said James Cuno, director of the Harvard University Art Museums. https://www.nytimes.com/2001/05/27/arts/art-architecture-modern-art-shows-its-age-summoning-modern-science.html Thank you

I think they want to say that the centre has been opened in a critical moment when the modernism is having another go/another life...maybe :)
