LETTER FROM MoMA DIRECTOR GLENN LOWRY
September–October with MoMA
This month’s new exhibitions feature two boundary-breaking artists. For Kai Althoff: and then leave me to the common swifts, the fearless and determined artist presents a selection of his highly personal work, displayed in an immersive environment designed by Althoff himself. And a new work by multidisciplinary artist Nástio Mosquito manifests throughout the Museum as a performance; a video installation; and visual, sonic, and social-media interventions.
Rare and classic films fill the theaters, with Modern Matinees offering a salute to Humphrey Bogart; a major retrospective of Spanish animation, presenting historic, commercial, and contemporary work, including the first color European animated feature, Garbancito de la Mancha (1945); and a program of films by Bruce Conner and his contemporaries that complements the exhibition of his work on view in the sixth-floor galleries through October 2. We’re also excited to host the New York premiere of the new restoration of Richard Williams’s legendary The Thief and the Cobbler: A Moment in Time, including a discussion with Williams and historian John Canemaker on September 24.
Before they close on September 18, catch Dadaglobe Reconstructed, which reunites more than 100 works submitted for a planned but unrealized Dada anthology, as well as the early-career retrospective at MoMA PS1 of Vito Acconci, who The New York Times calls “as influential as he is eccentric.”
