This session explores the ways in which artists use visual simplicity to convey complex ideas. Behind the unassuming appearance of some contemporary art objects now on view in the Contemporary Galleries, we will uncover tensions between the individual and the collective, mythology and history, and new attitudes toward religion and the fear of looming death.

Join us for lively conversations and engaging activities, facilitated by Museum educators, that offer insightful and unusual ways to engage with MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions.

Gallery Sessions are free for members and Museum admission ticket holders. No registration is required. Groups meet in the Marron Atrium, Floor 2.

FM headsets for sound amplification are available for all talks.
