Just in time for the final day of #CathyWilkes, we’re exploring the exhibition through the eyes of artist Hannah Levy (@hannahslevy), who was featured in the exhibition #PastSkin last year. Follow our Instagram Story to hear Levy’s take on the exhibition, and learn how Wilkes’s work is connected to her own.

Along with the closing day of our winter exhibitions, tomorrow marks the premiere of Colin Self's (@colinself) sci-fi opera, “Siblings (Elation VI),” the 2018 #VWSundaySessions Commission.

Encompassing performance, music, sculpture, and video, the participatory performance centers around a non-biological family bound together by curiosity and queer kinship who navigate living collectively on a damaged planet. Presented in collaboration with performers Lyra Pramuk (@lyra____ ), Tara-Jo Tashna (@tjtarajo), Sam Banks (@sam_banks), and lexi welch, “Siblings” is structured like a game, offering the audience multiple narratives and experiences.

Performances on Sunday, March 11 at 2:00 and 5:00 p.m. More information and tickets at

On #InternationalWomensDay, we celebrate groundbreaking artist Carolee Schneemann, who has spent her trailblazing 60-year career smashing taboos along with patriarchal visions of womanhood. "Covered in paint, grease, chalk, ropes, plastic, I establish my body as visual territory. The body may remain erotic, sexual, desired, desiring, but it is as well votive: marked, written over in a text of stroke and gesture discovered by my creative female will." See more than 300 of her works in the monumental retrospective #KineticPainting, on view through Sunday, March 11. Join us tomorrow night for a closing party, when the galleries will be open until midnight. More at


Experience the ecstatic energy of “Meat Joy” (1964) – supersized!

#CaroleeSchneemann’s riotous spectacle of sausages, slaughtered chickens, and dead fish will be projected at a massive scale in the VW Dome for one night only. One of Schneemann’s most celebrated performances, this iconic and incendiary work bravely celebrated the erotic and revelatory in a pre-feminist era, realizing the artist’s desire to ‘get nudes off the canvas.’ Join us for Night at the Museum to celebrate the closing of Schneemann's groundbreaking retrospective with exhibition galleries open until midnight, music from FXWRK (@fxwrk) and DJ Lady Lane (@djladylane), cocktails by Butter & Scotch (@drunkbakers) and M. Wells (@mwellshq), and bites by La Newyorkina (@lanewyorkina), Pies ’n’ Thighs (@piesnthighs), and La Paísita.

“The fact that someone can get expelled for painting herself nude just gives context to the period and why later work where Carolee used her body as material was so transgressive and provocative.” For the final days of “Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting” and “Cathy Wilkes,” we’ll be sharing new perspectives on these major exhibitions of groundbreaking artists as part of #5womenartists, a campaign by @womeninthearts to highlight the work of women artists.
Check out our Instagram Story to explore the exhibitions with Lyndsy Welgos (@lyndsy_welgos) and Whitney Mallett (@whitneymallett) of Topical Cream (@topicalcream_magazine), a digital platform for critical feminist interventions.

Wells (@mwellshq), bites by La Newyorkina (@lanewyorkina) and Pies ’n’ Thighs (@piesnthighs), and more.
