MoMA PS1

The @nytimes calls our major survey on #NancySpero mandatory viewing: "Her works are radical, topical and inspiring, and time is running out on what our critic calls a stunning show at MoMA PS1...In more than 100 paintings, prints and collages made over six decades, Ms. Spero artfully tackled the issues of her day, yet the pieces feel shockingly relevant to our own moment."

🥩#FoodPorn has nearly 200 million photos of food, ranging from the meticulously manicured to the notoriously unappetizing. From fitness influencers to Martha Stewart, social media is used to capture what we consume, only to be reconsumed as #content. Artist Gina Beavers uses this content to create visions of our digitally mediated lives. #GinaBeavers: The Life I Deserve is a must-see IRL: mo.ma/gina

Writer, art critic, activist, and curator Lucy Lippard described #NancySpero as “secretary to the apocalypse,” and her works as “long scrolls like an attenuated image of the artist in a paper mirror." From 1966 onward, Spero worked primarily on paper―pinning her fragile compositions directly to the wall―and women’s history gradually but emphatically became the central subject of her art. Closing June 23, don't miss this rare opportunity to see over 100 works by an icon in "Paper Mirror" mo.ma/spero

"I try to build out an idea with bits and pieces of scrap. If I’m working on an entire show, I’ll make sketches for each piece. It helps me think about how the works will relate to one another within the exhibition space.”

Tschabalala Self's (@tschabalalaself) textile works are inspired by people on the streets of Harlem. For her, @studiomuseum's Artist-in-Residence program is a homecoming. Her return to Harlem inspired a new exploration of form: she experiments with shadows, and invites us into the consciousness of her extravagant subjects. Learn more about Tschabalala in @nytimes, ahead of the Artist-in-Residence exhibition opening this Sunday at MoMA PS1: mo.ma/self

“Humble forms of epic proportions constitute #SimoneFattal’s oeuvre. In her sculptures of human forms, modest clay figures are rendered with just enough detail to be discernible as individual, but also abstract enough to be anyone, from any time...In its entirety, Fattal’s work constructs a world that has emerged from history, from memory, and from an attempt to bring forth who and what has passed into the present.”– Ruba Katrib, Curator.
...
Meet nearly 200 figures, homes, bridges, animals, trees, and other objects forged in ceramic, stoneware, terracotta, bronze, and porcelain. Now on view: mo.ma/fattal
