For today's long-term installation highlight, our Assistant Manager of Visitor Engagement, Laura, shares her thoughts on Abigail Lazkoz's "Cameraman." You can find this large scale drawing on view in the second-floor stairwell. "I've spoken to a bunch of visitors who remember when this piece was first installed for the quinquennial group exhibition "Greater New York" in 2005, and they love revisiting all of the intricacies of the work. Despite being just a black and white drawing, the expansive size really pulls you in and forces you to look more closely." While our exhibition galleries are closed for installation, you can still experience "Untitled" along with our other long-term installations via guided tours during normal museum hours through October 21. Or look for it as you explore our slate of new exhibitions at the Fall Open House this Sunday, October 22! #MoMAPS1

Raw chicken, fish, sausage, wet paint, transparent plastic, rope brushes, and paper scraps are the essential elements of one of Carolee Schneemann's best-known and influential works, "Meat Joy" (1964). The performance piece is an indulgent celebration of the body, conceived from the artist's "dream sensation images" that she gathered in journals beginning in 1960. Performers move in precisely oriented directions and rhythmically engage with these materials, smearing them on their bodies and creating an increasingly larger and disorienting organic mess.

Mark your calendars for our fall open house this Sunday (October 22), and be the first to see "Carolee Schneemann: Kinetic Painting," alongside our other new exhibitions. The day is free and open to the public, featuring an artist talk and musical performance. More information via the link in our bio.

For the 10th anniversary of the Young Architects Program in 2009, MOS's winning project "afterparty" sought to create a passive cool-down atmosphere, which allowed air to circulate through the structure while shading visitors from sunlight. Its combination of forms included tall, chimney-like shapes and cones that evoke the vernacular of village structures world-wide, as well as the open ruined vaults of the Roman Forum.

In celebration of #Archtober, we will be sharing a weekly #TBT featuring some of the winning projects from the Young Architects Program, a joint initiative of The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1 that offers emerging architectural talent the opportunity to design and present innovative projects each summer in MoMA PS1's courtyard. #MoMAPS1

For today's long-term installation highlight, Jonathan, our Visitor Engagement Associate, unpacks how visitors react to Alexis Rockman's "Untitled." You can find this small-scale painting hidden away at the foot of our first floor stairway. "Alexis Rockman's piece is a small and exciting entry point into a fantastical realm, depicting the imaginary in conjunction with studies of the natural world. Visitors are always surprised by the work, since it blends in so seamlessly with the building's walls.
While our exhibition galleries are closed for installation, you can still experience "Untitled" along with our other long-term installations via guided tours during normal museum hours through October 21. #MoMAPS1

In just two weeks, we'll be opening the first comprehensive U.S. retrospective of artist Carolee Schneemann, spanning the artist’s prolific six-decade career. The exhibition begins with rarely seen examples of the Schneemann's early paintings of the 1950s and their evolution into assemblages made in the 1960s, which integrated objects, mechanical elements, and modes of deconstruction—like "Four Fur Cutting Boards" from 1963, pictured above. The exhibition engages Schneemann’s oeuvre within the context of painting by tracing the developments that led to her groundbreaking innovations in performance, film, and installation in the 1970s, as well as her multimedia installations from the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s.
Mark your calendars for our fall open house on October 22, and join us on the exhibition's opening day for a discussion with Carolee Schneemann and the exhibition's curators. #MoMAPS1 #KineticPainting

For today's long-term installation highlight, Jordan, our Senior Visitor Engagement Associate, reflects on Pipilotti Rist's "Selbstlos im Lavabad (Selfless in the Bath of Lava)." This small-scale video work featuring the artist herself has been embedded in the floorboards of our main lobby since the museum re-opened in 1997 after an extensive renovation. "I've heard the sounds of Pipilotti Rist's "Selbstlos im Lavabad (Selfless in the Bath of Lava)" nearly every day for the past 6 years. I practically hear it in my sleep! It's such a fixture of the museum and it's always fascinating to see unfamiliar visitors be surprised and entertained when they discover the work in the floor for the first time. It's always such a pleasant, genuine reaction that never gets old. It's also uplifting to see families come back to MoMA PS1 and introduce their kids to "the lady yelling in the floor." Keep an eye out for more of our staff's favorite stories about these beloved works in the coming weeks. While our exhibition galleries are closed for installation, you can still experience "Selbstlos im Lavabad (Selfless in the Bath of Lava)" along with our other long-term installations via guided tours during normal museum hours through October 21, including this coming Monday, October 9. #MoMAPS1

For the 2012 Young Architect Program, HWKN (HollwichKushner) installed "Wendy" in the MoMA PS1 courtyard as an experiment that tested how far the boundaries of architecture could expand to create ecological effects. Constructed with nylon fabric and treated with a groundbreaking titania nanoparticle spray, the installation neutralized airborne pollutants and cleaned the air - the equivalent of taking 260 cars off the road.

James Turrell's "Meeting" is a work that impresses from every angle, and we love seeing visitors get creative with how they photograph the installation, like @carmentelehoi's perspective-bending shot that caught our eye for today's #MeetingMonday!
Despite our galleries being closed for the installation of fall exhibitions, you can still experience "Meeting" along with our other long-term installations via guided tours during normal museum hours through October 21. So, take in the light of Turrell's work, snap a picture, and tag your photos with the hashtag #TurrellMeeting—we may share them on our channel! #MoMAPS1

Join artist Stanya Kahn at The Museum of Modern Art (@themuseumofmodernart) tonight for a screening of her film "Stand in the Stream" as a part of Modern Mondays. Recently on view at MoMA PS1, the film is a fast-paced work about life, death, and the inextricability of the personal from the political. So, if you weren't able to experience the work in our galleries, don't miss another chance to immerse yourself in this urgent cinematic ode to contemporary life.

The screening will be followed by a conversation between Kahn (@highfivesinhell) and Klaus Biesenbach (@klausbiesenbach), Chief Curator at Large, The Museum of Modern Art, and Director, MoMA PS1.
