PopRally is a series of events at MoMA and MoMA PS1 that serve as a gateway for young and diverse audiences to engage with the Museum. Led by a cross-departmental committee of Museum staff, PopRally produces dynamic programs including artist collaborations, performances, film screenings, and digital content that encourage new and experimental ways of engaging with modern and contemporary art.
Join PopRally for an intimate evening of after-hours gallery talks and exhibition viewing of Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913–1917, with a cocktail reception and music by DJ Adam E. Milksop.
In the time between Henri Matisse's (1869–1954) return from Morocco in 1913 and his departure for Nice in 1917, the artist produced some of the most demanding, experimental, and enigmatic works of his career. Works from this period have typically been treated as unrelated to one another, as an aberration within the artist's development, or as a response to Cubism or World War I. Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913–1917 moves beyond the surface of these paintings to examine their physical production and the essential context of Matisse's studio practice.
Guided tours of the exhibition will begin promptly at 7:00, 7:30, 8:00, 8:30, and 9:00 p.m. Please select your preferred tour below to purchase your ticket. Space on each tour is limited. Alternatively, you can purchase a viewing-only ticket, which allows you to see the exhibition without a gallery talk.
