In conjunction with the gallery exhibition Alibis: Sigmar Polke 1963–2010, MoMA presents a pair of evenings that allow visitors to see Polke’s film works in a theater setting. Polke’s densely layered and open-ended films reflect the flood of observations that shaped his life and work. Each evening will feature a special introduction by a filmmaker whose personal and collaborative experiences with Polke provide unique insights into the artist’s multifaceted approaches to film.
The exhibition is organized by MoMA with Tate Modern, London. Organized by Kathy Halbreich, Associate Director, MoMA; with Mark Godfrey, Curator of International Art, Tate Modern; and Lanka Tattersall, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Painting and Sculpture, MoMA.
