This long-running screening series—building upon the legacy of the Cineprobe (1968–2002) and Video Viewpoints (1978–2002) programs—is a home for moving-image experimentation and innovation at MoMA. Modern Mondays invites artists working in film and video to present their work in an intimate setting, with each evening presenting a unique opportunity for audiences to engage in dialogue with the artists, along with curators and other guests. A platform for both emerging artists and trailblazing figures who have changed the way we think about the moving image, this series premieres new projects, revisits landmark film and video practices, and explores interdisciplinary engagement with performance, sound, technology, and Web-based art.

Organized by the Department of Film and the Department of Media and Performance, and overseen by Sophie Cavoulacos, Associate Curator, Department of Film.

Film at MoMA is made possible by CHANEL.

Additional support is provided by the Annual Film Fund. Leadership support for the Annual Film Fund is provided by Debra and Leon D.
