• In conjunction with the current installation of Pierre Huyghe’s Untilled (Liegender Frauenakt) in MoMA’s Sculpture Garden, the Department of Film presents screenings of his The Host and The Cloud on Tuesday and Thursday. Set on the former site of an ethnographic museum on the outskirts of Paris and shot on the Day of the Dead, Valentine’s Day, and May Day over the course of a year, the film explores themes of capitalism, technology, and mysticism.

• On Wednesday, Agora asks the question What Is Art You Can’t See? This conversation series—free with Museum admission—takes place in the Sculpture Garden every Wednesday afternoon in July.

• Act fast to get a ticket for An Evening with Yoko Ono and Alexandra Munroe on Wednesday evening, when Ono presents her feature-length film “Rape” (1969) (a collaboration with John Lennon), along with a selection of short films from the period. Afterwards, Ono will be joined by Guggenheim Museum curator Alexandra Munroe for a conversation.
