The Office For Creative Research (OCR), in collaboration with Elevator Repair Service (ERS), presents A Sort of Joy (Thousands of Exhausted Things), a live performance that uses information from MoMA’s collection database as the source material for its script, exploring the Museum’s past and present exhibitions. Join us for this free performance in the galleries. This site-specific performance will take place intermittently throughout the scheduled event time.

Artists Experiment is an annual initiative in the Department of Education that brings together contemporary artists in dialogue with MoMA educators to conceptualize ideas for innovative and experimental public interactions.

The current Artists Experiment project, Emily Spivack's An archive of everything worn to MoMA from November 1, 2017, to January 28, 2018, will be on view in the Museum through January 28, 2018. The Department of Education is also collaborating with artist Michael Rakowitz on a forthcoming project.
