Foreclosed: Visit the Teams for Open Studios

We invite you to join us tomorrow, Saturday, June 18, at MoMA PS1 for Open Studios, where you can meet the five interdisciplinary teams working on solutions to the foreclosure crisis in the U.S., hear about their projects, and see work in progress.

Foreclosed: Rehousing the American Dream is a collaboration between The Museum of Modern Art and Columbia University’s Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture. Jointly conceived and curated by Barry Bergdoll, MoMA’s Philip Johnson Chief Curator of Architecture and Design, and Reinhold Martin, Director, the Buell Center, the workshop and exhibition will examine new architectural possibilities for American cities and suburbs in the context of the recent foreclosure crisis.

Each of the five interdisciplinary teams is focusing on a specific “megaregion,” and are producing work during a workshop phase at MoMA PS1 to be included in the exhibition at MoMA opening in January 2012. The workshops are open to the public in an effort to highlight the process of architecture.

For those of you unable to attend in person, we will attempt to provide live video of the presentations to the public on our Facebook page and on our Livestream page. Video of the presentations will also be available next week for the public to review. Read more

I had the opportunity to meet with a group of teens in MoMA’s Museum Studies program to discuss what the Department of Communications does for the Museum. Besides writing press releases and pitching stories to the media, among many other things, we think creatively to get the word out about MoMA and MoMA PS1 exhibitions. Read more

Art and Fashion Team Up for MOVE! at MoMA PS1

Artist Olaf Breuning and designer Cynthia Rowley have teamed up to create a new body of work. In Olaf’s case, it’s a series of photos, and for Cynthia, it’s a new collection. What you get to watch in this video is girls getting cans of paint dumped on them! And it happens forty-eight times.

If you’re curious to see more, join us at MoMA PS1 for MOVE! this Saturday, October 30, and Sunday, October 31, from noon to 6:00 p.m. This two-day art and fashion explosion will be taking over all three floors of MoMA PS1′s Long Island City hub. Read more

Franklin Evans: Paint and Process

In this video interview, Franklin Evans discusses his installation timecompressionmachine (2010), in which he covered the floor and walls of the gallery with unstretched canvas, screens made of painted strips of tape, and old newsprint and press releases from gallery exhibitions. Composed of numerous overlapping parts, the installation gives the sense of a work in progress. Additionally, the ephemeral nature of the installation, which exists solely for the duration of Greater New York 2010, is highlighted by Evans’s use of materials that are typically considered disposable. As the artist puts it, his environments suggest “the not-quite-finished, the in-transition, the nearly-emerging, the slowly-evolving, the near-end, and the move-towards-erasure.” Read more
