“Outrageously magical things happen when you mess around with a symbol.” -David Hammons
...
Charles White taught drawing in Los Angeles from the mid-1960s until the end of his life, and mentored a generation of students. Among them is #DavidHammons, who studied with White early in his career, and curated our “Charles White—Leonardo da Vinci.” #MoMAArtistsChoice exhibition. Looking back over Hammons’s career, one MoMA curator notes, “Hammons has created a vocabulary of symbols from everyday life and messed around with them...Many of the results have indeed been outrageous, and most all of them have had a distinct kind of magic.” mo.ma/2xyP06z

What does the symbolic pairing of #CharlesWhite with #LeonardodaVinci represent to you?

“Retailers need to promote what’s new. When you have an established business, it’s difficult to compete with new brands. It can be taxing on a design team to constantly reinvent and innovate fast enough to break through the market saturation. In addition, it’s important to keep your brand DNA focused. Chasing another brand’s aesthetic is a way to get lost in a saturated market.”—Felita Harris (@msfashionbiz), Senior VP Global Sales, Alexander Wang (@alexanderwangny) on standing out in a saturated market.

Charles White’s “Black Pope (Sandwich Board Man)” is the only other work sharing the gallery with the first Leonardo da Vinci drawing on view at MoMA. The works hang on opposite walls with over 450 years separating their creation. But, what do they share? Both artists were clearly devoted to drawing, and have had a lasting influence on generations of artists, but artist David Hammons, the curator of this exhibition, hints at something more. For Hammons, White’s and Leonardo da Vinci’s destinies may be intertwined in the stars, as both artists were born in the first half of April. What connections do you see between the two artists?

Louise Bourgeois may be best known for her monumental spider sculptures, but when she first started making art she was primarily a printmaker and a painter. Sewon Kang, curatorial assistant for the exhibition “#LouiseBourgeois: An Unfolding Portrait,” stops by the galleries to share the inspiration and process behind “Thompson Street,” a work sparked by a chance sighting outside a brothel on Thompson Street in New York and the artist’s own feelings of loneliness in a new city.

Last week, an 8 ⅜ × 6 ¼ inch drawing quietly went up in our fifth floor galleries and made history—for the first time, a work by Leonardo da Vinci is on view at the Museum of Modern Art. Of course, there are questions: Why here? Why now? Is Leonardo da Vinci modern?
