Events for this program are not yet scheduled.

This year's MoMA Nights music series draws from local and international sources with an eye to the global cross-pollination of styles and genres. A singer from Brazil takes cues from American pop, while a Congolese guitarist forms a breakthrough collaboration in Paris. A tribute to an avant-garde avatar borrows a Japanese form of poetry and involves 100 composers, and a musical legend from Sierra Leone mixes it up with bandmates in Brooklyn. Each of the innovators in this nine-concert series started with a powerful artistic vision and has traveled the globe to realize it.
The series is the fifth organized in collaboration with Olivier Conan, programmer and co-owner of Barbès performance space (barbesbrooklyn.com).
In the event of rain, the Sculpture Garden will close, and music will take place in Theater 1, with the exception of August 9, when the rain location will be The Agnes Gund Garden Lobby (standing room only).
Please note: Sculpture Garden and indoor seating are limited and on a first-come, first-served basis.
