LETTER FROM MoMA DIRECTOR GLENN LOWRY
April–May at MoMA
Spring is here and the Museum is gearing up for a remarkable season. Upcoming exhibitions explore women artists’ contributions to postwar abstraction, the striking originality of Louise Lawler, and Robert Rauschenberg’s incredible career and influential role as a catalyst and collaborator.
Artist Ian Cheng, the subject of an exhibition at MoMA PS1, joins us for a Modern Mondays evening on April 24, and, in a twist on the artist talk, on May 4 Louise Lawler will present her work with “responses” by artists Jenny Holzer, Matt Mullican, Yvonne Rainer, and others.
From crowd-pleasing to cutting edge, upcoming film programs include the first North American retrospective of the pioneering Nigerien filmmaker Moustapha Alassane, more rare discoveries from Universal Pictures, and a Modern Matinees tribute to the dashing Cary Grant.
You can experience the serene side of MoMA with Quiet Mornings, on the first Wednesday of each month from 7:30 to 9:00 a.m. Little ones will enjoy hands-on activities in the new Art Lab, which explores art and nature. With longer days and warmer temperatures on the way, it's also a great time to visit The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. We hope to see you there.
