Join PopRally on April 18 for an evening of after-hours gallery talks at MoMA. Take a tour of the Museum's celebrated photography collection or the special exhibition Comic Abstraction: Image-Breaking, Image-Making.
MoMA's Photography Galleries feature images that employ a diverse range of techniques and subjects-from mid-nineteenth-century daguerreotype portraits to the monumental contemporary landscapes of Andreas Gursky.
Comic Abstraction: Image-Breaking, Image-Making examines the ways in which contemporary artists have used images culled from slapstick, comic strips and films, caricature, cartoons, and animation as springboards for abstraction-not to withdraw from reality, but to address complex questions about war and global conflicts, the loss of innocence, and racial stereotyping. Play with Franz West's Adaptives; experience the disquieting, cartoonlike noises of Juan Muñoz's Waiting for Jerry; walk around Polly Apfelbaum's floor installation Blossom, and much more.
