Organized in conjunction with the exhibition Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs, MoMA Studio: Beyond the Cut-Out is a creative and social space that takes the cut-out as a starting point from which to consider Matisse’s lasting influence on contemporary art and culture. Through a variety of artist-led programs and interactive projects workshops, visitors of all ages have the opportunity to explore how the innovative technique of the cut-out emerges across different mediums and relates to themes including the decorative, the evolution of an artwork, and the boundary between abstraction and figuration. The space has been conceived in collaboration with including Carlos Amorales, Sarah Crowner, Arturo Herrera, Amy Jacobs of Dieu Donné, and Elaine Reichek.
