As we approach the solstice this week—the official start of summer—things are truly “buzzing” at MoMA. Don’t miss out!
• Celebrating the launch of their monograph Barkow Leibinger: Spielraum (Hatje Cantz, 2015), Frank Barkow of Barkow Leibinger is joined by Barry Bergdoll (MoMA, Columbia University), Hal Foster (Princeton University), and Karen Stein (writer, architectural advisor) for Architecture as Instrument, a discussion on the making of books and buildings. RSVP required.
• On Tuesday, French artist Pierre Huyghe’s sculpture incorporating a live bee colony is unveiled in MoMA’s Sculpture Garden. The honeybees are a gentle Italian breed—read our FAQ for more info.
• The annual Flaherty at MoMA film series—a collaboration with the Robert Flaherty Film Seminar—begins on Saturday, and this year presents the work of filmmakers hailing from Lebanan, Algeria, and Egypt whose work explores the theme “The Scent of Places.”
• Join us at sunrise on Sunday for a special PopRally event—YOKO ONO MORNING PEACE 2015—that celebrates Ono’s current exhibition and the 50th anniversary of her New York performance of Morning Piece (1964) to George Maciunas.
