This Week at MoMA: January 18–24

Today we honor Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and his inspirational legacy. This week’s highlights include a last call to see exhibitions of designs that changed the way we see and hear the world, a members-only bash, and more.

• A film program dedicated to the legendary choreographer and director Jack Cole kicks off on Wednesday with a screening of On the Riviera (1951) introduced by Nicole Fosse of the Vernon-Fosse Foundation.
