In the online edition of MoMA’s ArtSpeaks program, a member of our staff shares personal impressions of an artwork in the galleries. Here, projectionist Fred Hatt takes us through the exhibition Private Lives Public Spaces (which closes on May 23), focusing in particular on the home movies of artist and critic Edit deAk and their redolence of New York City’s Downtown art scene of the late-1970s and early ’80s.
Explore our collection work by work as we release a new video each Friday. Watch the videos and then come visit the works in person at MoMA!
