This week brings an eclectic mix of programs that cater to both early birds and night owls alike. Whatever your speed, don’t forget to include mom in your plans—send her an e-card from MoMA’s collection, buy her a unique gift from the MoMA stores, treat her to a special Mother’s Day event (see below), or simply plan a date to spend together at the Museum, any day of the year.
• Tonight, May 5, Modern Mondays presents An Evening with Patty Chang and David Kelley. The artists will discuss their collaborative video work Flotsam Jetsam (2007), currently on view.
• Unleash your inner undead and take in a midday screening of Night of the Living Dead on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday (May 7–9) as part of our weekly An Auteurist History of Film series.
• Join artist Paul Ramirez Jonas on Thursday, May 8, for MoMACopyShop, a free workshop in MoMA Books, where visitors can meet the artist and create their own bound “catalogue” that maps their visit to the Museum. Sign-up is required; see our website for details.
• Look closely at Jasper Johns’s latest works (on view for the first time ever) in the Gallery Session tour Experimentation and Chance in Jasper Johns’s Regrets on Friday, May 9.
• On Saturday, May 10, the first comprehensive exhibition of Lygia Clark’s groundbreaking work opens at MoMA, and a related program of Brazilian experimental film from the 1960s and 1970s begins in the theaters.
• Also on Saturday, you can head to MoMA PS1 in Queens for Night at the Museum, from 8:00 p.m. to midnight, for performances and musical guests in the VW Dome and extended viewing hours of current exhibitions.
• On Sunday, May 11, celebrate Mother’s Day at MoMA with our annual breakfast reception and tour before the Museum opens to the public. Tickets sell out quickly, so get yours today!
