Giving new life to the past is a prominent theme among this week’s picks. Take a closer look and join us!

• If you haven’t seen it already, be sure to check out our new e-book, Picasso: The Making of Cubism 1912–1914, which presents the beloved artist’s work in an amazingly immersive and interactive way—including over 400 high-res images. You can purchase it as an iPad app through the App Store, or an interactive PDF through MoMAstore.org.

• On Wednesday, August 13, in conjunction with our weeklong run of the documentary A Fuller Life, catch a screening of Sam Fuller’s The Big Red One: The Reconstruction. This print, which was supervised by the critic Richard Schickel, restores some 40 minutes of studio-cut footage to the director’s fictionalized account of his World War II duty.
