This Week at MoMA: September 29–October 5

Fall is in full swing this week as we kick off a new film series, restart our seasonal education programs, and open a major new exhibition. Check it out:

• As an annual presentation from the French film studio Gaumont’s archives, join us on Monday, September 28, for a screening Jean-Pierre Melville’s first feature, Silence de la mer (Silence of the Sea), adapted from the famed French Resistance novella.

• MoMA’s Department of Film begins a new series of daytime screenings, drawn from MoMA’s collection, devoted to actors who developed their screen personalities to become vehicles of meaning in their movies. The inaugural program, Acteurism: The Emergence of Ann Sheridan, 1937–1943, kicks off on Wednesday, October 1, with William Keighley’s Torrid Zone (1940), featuring Sheridan as a tough-talking American chanteuse.

• On Thursday, October 2, head to MoMA PS1 for Retrospective, the inaugural U.S. museum survey of French artist and choreographer Xavier Le Roy.

Robert Gober: The Heart Is Not a Metaphor, the first large-scale survey in the United States of artist Robert Gober’s work, opens on Saturday, October 4, filling the second-floor Contemporary Galleries with about 130 works, from the artist’s signature sculptures of everyday objects like sinks and beds to room-sized installations that are evocative and deeply personal.

• Our fall Family Programs season begins this weekend with Tours for Fours exploring Modern Materials and A Closer Look for Kids asking, What’s the Story? Narrative in Art. Space is limited for these free gallery tours for children, so be sure to arrive early to secure a spot.
