Visitors have an extended opportunity to view special exhibitions such as Artist’s Choice: Vik Muniz, Rebus (through February 23), a visual puzzle the whole family can enjoy, and Marlene Dumas: Measuring Your Own Grave (through February 16)—don’t miss the final week of Dumas’s darkly poetic paintings and drawings. Also on view is the Museum’s renowned collection of modern and contemporary art.
Entry to Modern Mondays, the Museum’s weekly series of screenings with contemporary filmmakers that showcases innovation in film, is included in the cost of admission. On February 9, Modern Mondays presents An Evening with Miroslaw Balka, in which the artist discusses his video and installation projects (7:00 p.m., Theater 2).
An Evening with Miroslaw Balka
Warsaw-based artist Miroslaw Balka [b. Otwock, Poland, 1958] presents and discusses his video and installation projects Sundays Kill More; Postcards; Mapping the Studio, Too (all 2008); Bottom (1999/2003); and Bambi (from Winterreise) (2003). These works deal with both personal and collective memories, especially as they relate to the artist’s Catholic upbringing and the cumulative experience of Poland’s fractured history. Through this investigation of domestic memories and public catastrophe, Balka explores how subjective traumas are translated into collective histories, and vice versa. His materials are everyday objects, but the resulting works resonate with ritual, hidden memories, and the legacy of the Nazi occupation of Poland. This program is presented in association with the Polish Cultural Institute in New York.
Program 90 min.
