Critical 5 art events this week in NYC: taking MoMA on, Jan. 30 - Feb. 1
This week, art in NYC goes micro as we focus on one of our favorite places in the city: MoMA.
Here are 5 must-see art events all conveniently located in the same place! Spend a morning, afternoon, day etc. exploring the museum or until the curators start to give you a weird look. You know you wanna.
Start your all inclusive MoMA experience with Wolfgang Laib’s Pollen from Hazelnut, the artist's largest pollen installation to date. Yup, that's right, pollen. You won't want to miss this chance to see the museum's Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium infused in a vibrant yellow blanket.
Next up, check out some performance art with the Performing Histories: Live Artworks Examining the Past presented by the Department of Media and Performance Art. These performances are made up of "live" responses to three exhibitions, Performing Histories (1) and (2), Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925,and Tokyo 1955–1970: A New Avant-Garde. Sure to be an intriguing experience.
Tucked away on the third floor and ending soon, New Photography 2012, surveys five artists whose work collectively display the diversity of photography today. Who wouldn't want to spend hours soaking up photography and all it's come to mean in 2013?
Perfectly located on the third floor too, head over to the Architecture and Design Galleries 9+1 Ways of Being Political. This exhibit touches upon the connection between architecture and the current political condition. They're not just tall buildings, you know.
Round out your MoMA marathon with the Artist's Choice: Trisha Donnelly. Trisha Donnelly is the tenth artist to be a part of the Artist's Choice series, an exhibition drawn entirely from MoMA's collection. See why we saved it for last? All MoMA, all the time.
