We're decking the halls of the museum for the Artist Holiday Party on Friday! It's the last Night at the Museum of the year, and to close out 2017 we're thrilled to have Kindness (@Kindnessmusic) DJing in the VW Dome—which will be transformed into a massive snow globe. Tickets are going fast! Available now at mo.ma/natm or via the link in our bio.

For today's #MeetingMonday, we're highlighting a stunning photo by visitor @samanthambloom, who created a small series of portraits depicting fellow museum-goers taking in James Turrell's "Meeting." You can find the full series of images on her account.

Share your own photos of the piece with the hashtag #TurrellMeeting, and we may share it on our feed! #MoMAPS1

We recently installed a presentation of two works by the sculptor Michael E. Smith in our second floor galleries. Both untitled, these kinetic sculptures create haunting effects through their use of intangible materials combined with empty vessels that once housed, or have the potential to house, a living entity—such as this sweatshirt attached to a fog machine or a laser pointer intersecting with a vintage taxidermy macaw. #MoMAPS1

Don't miss the chance to see our installation of two works from Alexandra Bell's (@yesitsalex) "Counternarratives" series, on view in the courtyard through December 11. Featured in the New York Times today (link in bio), Bell describes how her work shows “how a turn of phrase or a misplaced photo has real consequences for people at the margins who are still suffering under the weight of unfair and biased representation.” The works were originally installed as a part of our #VWSundaySessions program "Radical Edits" on Nov. 12. You can watch her entire presentation now at http://mo.ma/counternarratives. #MoMAPS1

When you step into our lobby, the first work you encounter is Carolee Schneemann's large-scale collage work "Torn Eye Body Collage" (1963–2017), completed just in time for the artist's retrospective. Throughout her six-decade career, Schneemann has employed collage as a central aesthetic strategy—cutting, pasting, and recombining imagery across a wide range of mediums. "Torn Eye Body Collage" consists of fragments of photographic prints from the iconic series "Eye Body: 36 Transformative Actions for Camera" (1963), over which she has applied washes of acrylic paint. #MoMAPS1 #KineticPainting 📷: @pablo.enriquez

Cathy Wilkes’s work offers an exercise in empathy for its viewers by exposing the artist's deeply felt subjective experiences. The New York Times (@nytimes) described this jarring vulnerability as "an emotional roundhouse in an art world that can sometimes seem as if it forgot how to feel." Read the entire review at http://nyti.ms/2ksDhRj, and make sure to see the exhibition on view through March 11. #MoMAPS1 #CathyWilkes

Sunset has been getting earlier and earlier, so make sure you don't miss a minute of the sunset lighting program for James Turrell's "Meeting" by making your way over to the installation by around 4:30 p.m. You'll be able to enjoy the full transformative experience and snap some great #MeetingMonday contenders—just like @sur_fresh! #TurrellMeeting #MoMAPS1

"At the Museum" recently stopped by to capture the lead-up to our new season of exhibitions, including "Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting," "Cathy Wilkes," Naeem Mohaiemen: There Is No Last Man," and "Alvaro Barrington." Watch as Carolee Schneemann discusses her first U.S. retrospective, and go behind the scenes to see how curators and artists work together in the final stages of installation.

Naeem Mohaiemen's fictitious film, "Tripoli Cancelled" (2017), follows the daily rituals of a man stranded in an abandoned airport, and highlights his daily routine of walking, smoking, writing letters to his wife, staging scenes with mannequins in flight attendant uniforms, and reading from the dark British children’s book Watership Down (1972). The protagonist's lonely experience loosely mirrors that of Mohaiemen's father, who was stranded at the Ellinikon Airport in Athens, Greece after losing his passport—the same now-abandoned airport where the piece was filmed.

See the film as a part of the exhibition "There Is No Last Man" on view through March 11. #MoMAPS1
