An Evening with Martha Rosler

Monday, November 26, 2012, 7:00 p.m.
Theater 2 (The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2), T2

For her first solo exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art, multimedia and performance artist Martha Rosler presents her work Meta-Monumental Garage Sale, a large-scale version of the classic American garage sale, in which second-hand goods and castoffs are organized, displayed, and sold by the artist in MoMA’s Marron Atrium. For this evening, the artist joins curator Sabine Breitwieser in a discussion about the context and development of this work, which premiered as Monumental Garage Sale in the art gallery of the University of California, San Diego, in 1973. The Monumental Garage Sale will be discussed along with additional, recently acquired works by the artist, such as the photo-and-audio installation She Sees in Herself a New Woman Every Day (1976), on view in MoMA’s Media Gallery as part of the exhibition Performing Histories (1).
