February at MoMA

LowryDear Friends:

As we head into February, be sure to catch the final days of Picasso Sculpture, an exhibition that has captivated audiences and critics alike. If you haven’t yet seen this once-in-a-lifetime survey—or our eye-opening retrospective of Joaquín Torres-García—I hope you’ll be able to visit soon. If you have, I hope you can come again!

Opening February 14 is the first-ever New York retrospective of Marcel Broodthaers’s witty, poetic, and widely influential art. For one month, beginning February 20, Maria Hassabi brings her live performance installation PLASTIC, which explores motion and stillness in an unexpected way, to the Museum’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium and stairwells within the Museum.

New York premieres are a highlight in the theaters. The annual Doc Fortnight festival, now in its 15th year, presents several new discoveries in documentary filmmaking. And four of the six selections in our focused look at Argentine film noir will be screening for the first time in the City.

Don't forget that registration is now open for a new season of classes at MoMA. Ranging from multi-week immersions to studio-based instruction to one-night workshops, there’s something to suit every schedule. It’s a great way to experience our collection and exhibitions in a deep and memorable way.
