• Dive into Matisse’s room-sized installation, The Swimming Pool during a Gallery Sessions tour on Thursday that explores this groundbreaking work and it’s influence on other artists including Picasso.
• Beginning on Friday, we present special nighttime and weekend screenings of selections from our Modern Matinees program, Modern “Matinees”: Fashionably Late, which this year celebrates the Department of Film’s 80th anniversary and focuses on early acquisitions spearheaded by founding curator Iris Barry.
• And Sunday is the last day to see the exhibition Transmissions: Art in Eastern Europe and Latin America, 1960–1980, which features nearly 300 works and explore anti-art movements, the aesthetic and political implications of mass media communication, and unorthodox and ephemeral art forms.
