This Week at MoMA: April 27–May 3

As we say goodbye to April (and hopefully welcome some warmer weather), we’re excited to announce the start of a new initiative for New Yorkers ages 65 and up called Prime Time, which, in addition to future events will offer half-price senior admission and discounted membership throughout the month of May. Stay tuned for more on this program. Meanwhile, check out these highlights for the week:

• Tonight, in conjunction with the exhibition Latin America in Construction: Architecture 1955–1980, catch a special screening and discussion with the filmmakers of Unfinished Spaces, a documentary about the history and rediscovery of Cuba’s National Art Schools project, designed by the young artists Ricardo Porro, Vittorio Garatti, and Roberto Gottardi in the wake of Castro’s Revolution. The screening is free, but reservations are required.

• Also tonight, artist Bouchra Khalili joins us for a Modern Mondays program featuring a screening of her Foreign Office (2015) and the final chapters of her Speeches trilogy (2013), followed by a discussion with curator Thomas J. Lax.

• Head to MoMA PS1 to see the new exhibitions Math Bass: Off the Clock and Jos de Gruyter & Harald Thys: Fine Arts, and celebrate the last Sunday Sessions of the season with Micachu: Local Holiday, Local Sun, Locals, Local Rain, Local Number, Local Drink, Local Customs, a performance by British artist Micachu of new material pulled from her vast collection of audio odds and sods, matched with wildly colorful projections from her sketchbook.

• And be sure not to miss the exhibition 100 Years in Post-Production: Resurrecting a Lost Landmark of Black Film History—an exhibition of the first black-cast feature film footage that was recently discovered in MoMA’s film collection—which closes on Sunday.
