Follow a caregiver, a mortician, and a prostitute through a disorienting amalgam of illness, companionship, abuse, family, death, and sex Thursday at 7 p.m. during a rare screening of #RezaAbdoh's 1992 film, Blind Owl, at @themuseumofmodernart. Blind Owl fits within a tradition of independent cinema rooted in 1980s performance culture, and exemplifies the shift from analog film to video. Auspicious and unique in Abdoh’s body of work, the film poignantly points to an accomplished filmography that might have been. Tickets at mo.ma/watchit
If you're not coming to Warm Up every Saturday, wyd? ICYMI: take a look back at last week's sold-out #WarmUp2018 with @atrak, @buddy, @sahbabii, @instagramber, and lots of beach balls Tickets for this Saturday at mo.ma/july21
Among #RezaAbdoh’s contributions to 20th-century avant-garde theater was his innovative use of technology. The frenetic pacing and pop-culture content of music videos and cable TV informed Abdoh’s use of video, alongside choreography, song, and rapid-fire performance to create immersive, polyphonic environments. This afternoon at @themuseumofmodernart, learn more with a documentary film and a selection of his short film projects screening at 1:30 and 4 p.m. Details at mo.ma/abdoh

Bracing for this heat wave... Cool off with SahBabii's (@sahbabii) new summer single, "Watery." The Atlanta rapper went viral last year after releasing "Pull Up Wit Ah Stick," and his breezy bars have proven to be infectious ever since. Unique, introspective, and fun-loving, the 21-year-old is a must-see this Saturday at #WarmUp2018. Get your tickets at mo.ma/july14 #summergoth
Wavy Now on view, large-scale paintings by New York-based artist #WalterPrice traverse the border between abstraction and figuration. Price’s past military service directly informs his daily practice of painting. Often rendered at an intimate and domestic scale, these new dreamlike compositions presented retain his interest in both figuration and in the expressionistic possibilities of color.

Explore the radical visions of Iranian-American theater artist Reza Abdoh in a new film series at @themuseumofmodernart presented in conjunction with our current #RezaAbdoh exhibition. A self-described member of the “TV generation,” Abdoh voraciously incorporated references to music videos, variety shows, film, dance, classical texts, BDSM, and more into his work, with equal parts poetry and rigor. Discover the moving images that played an essential role in the artist’s large-scale, interdisciplinary productions beginning in the mid-1980s. Tickets for screenings from July 14 through 23 at mo.ma/abdoh.
