MoMa - April 2018
These artists will join the storied list of directors—Pedro Almodóvar, Chantal Akerman, Kirsten Johnson, Spike Lee, Kelly Reichardt, Guillermo del Toro, and Denis Villeneuve, among many others—who have shown in past years.
On March 31, Adrian Piper: A Synthesis of Intuitions 1965–2016 will open on the sixth floor and in the Marron Atrium. Often drawing from her personal and professional experiences, Piper’s influential work has directly addressed gender, race, xenophobia, and, more recently, social engagement and self-transcendence. The result of a four-year collaboration between the artist, The Museum of Modern Art, and The Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, this is the most comprehensive retrospective of Piper’s work to date. Adrian Piper: A Synthesis of Intuitions, 1965–2016 | March 31–July 22, 2018
Since the 1960s, this uncompromising artist and philosopher has explored the potential of Conceptual art to challenge our assumptions about the social structures that shape the world around us. Bringing together over 290 works, the exhibition offers a rare opportunity to experience her provocative and wide-ranging artwork. New Directors/New Films 2018 | Through April 8
Throughout its rich, nearly half-century history, this festival celebrates "imaginative, daring and restless" filmmakers who represent the present and anticipate the future of cinema, pioneering artists whose work pushes the envelope in unexpected ways. This year’s festival will introduce 25 features and 10 short films to New York audiences. Tarsila do Amaral: Inventing Modern Art in Brazil | Through June 3
This exhibition is the first in the United States exclusively devoted to Brazilian artist Tarsila do Amaral, a foundational figure in the history of modernism in Latin America. Over 130 artworks are on view, including emblematic modernist paintings and large-scale, socially driven works.
Being: New Photography 2018 | Through August 19
Every two years, MoMA’s celebrated exhibition series presents compelling ideas in recent photography and photo-based art. This year’s edition asks how photography can capture what it means to be human and brings together an international group of 17 artists, all presenting their work at the Museum for the first time.
