With warmer weather and sunny skies finally here, it’s about time to start enjoying the Sculpture Garden. (There’s plenty to do inside the Museum, too.) Here are our picks for the week:
• Tonight, Modern Mondays presents An Evening for Tony Conrad featuring the late filmmaker and composer’s recent composition Empire for Strings (2015), performed live by the String Orchestra of Brooklyn, followed by screenings of The Flicker (1966) and Straight and Narrow (1970). This event, originally scheduled to include Conrad, celebrates the polymath artist’s legacy in light of his recent passing.
• Join poet Elizabeth Zuba for the final Marcel Broodthaers–inspired Erasures Workshop on Tuesday. This drop-in workshop is free with admission on a first-come, first-served basis, with sessions starting at 12:00, 1:00, and 2:00 p.m.
• Little art lovers can enjoy Story Time in our interactive Art Lab space on Friday at 11:00 a.m. Recommended for ages two and up.
• On Saturday, a Gallery Session looks at Monumental Works of the 1960s, exploring art in our newly reinstalled collection galleries focusing on this radical decade.
• At MoMA PS1, see the 2016 Sunday Sessions commission Rotting Wood, the Dripping Word, Tobias Madison and Matthew Lutz-Kinoy’s homage to avant-garde playwright and filmmaker Shūji Terayama. The performance, which is accompanied by a small archival exhibition, takes place on Saturday and Sunday at 4:00 p.m.
