Close out the short-but-sweet month of February with one of these special programs:
• PLASTIC, a live installation by artist and choreographer Maria Hassabi, is now on view in the Marron Atrium and on the Museum’s staircases—don’t miss the views from the fifth-floor galleries. Hassabi also joins us on Wednesday evening for a conversation with Philip Bither, director and chief curator of the Walker Art Museum.
• Doc Fortnight 2016 continues all week long with the New York premieres of a remarkable cross-section of nonfiction films, including K8 Hardy’s contemporary queer punk portrait Outfitumentary; a personal look at artist Ida Applebroog by her filmmaker daughter, Beth B; and Tadhg O’Sullivan’s The Great Wall, an investigation of barriers to immigration across EU. Each of these is accompanied by a discussion with the filmmakers, so check the full schedule for details.
• On Thursday, our program for deaf adults, Interpreting MoMA, hosts a special American Sign Language gallery talk at MoMA PS1 by Christine Sun Kim, an artist whose work is featured the exhibition Greater New York. The tour follows a wine and cheese reception. Advance registration is required and space is limited, so contact [email protected] or call (212) 408-6347 or (212) 247-1230 (TTY) for more information.
• The assemblage-art exhibition Take an Object, which includes works by Betye Saar and by Katsuhiro Yamaguchi that are new to MoMA’s collection, as well as iconic works by Jasper Johns, Robert Rauscheberg, and Lee Bontecou, closes on Sunday.
• At MoMA PS1 catch a special Sunday Sessions, when BOMB magazine presents Again, With Feeling in celebration of its 35th anniversary. For the event, 10 pairs of artists—among them Nicole Eisenman, Hope Gangloff, Richard Foreman, Miguel Gutierrez, Ralph Lemon, and Linda Yablonsky—will revisit former conversations, with a musical performance by Alan Licht.
