New Tumblr Series from MoMA Talks!
We are so excited to roll out a few series we have been secretly posting for the last month or so - now you can see all of them in one easy place! Just click on one of our three series listings on the right side menu of our blog to see all our posts. Check them out!
Monday Muse - Since we started tumbling, we have been sharing words of wisdom and inspiration from all types of creatives -writers, artists, philosophers and more. Start your week off right with our weekly #mondaymuse series… or check out our series whenever you like here!
Roving Guides - This fall, MoMA educators began inserting guerrilla interventions in our gallery spaces - from impromptu readings and drawing sessions, to hands-on encounters with objects. These spontaneous interactions are meant to engage our visitors with each other and the artwork in new, surprising, and unexpected ways. Since we started these experiments, we have been taking pictures and notes, and we have been talking to visitors about their experience. The Roving Guides series compiles our observations to share insight into the happenings. Search #momaroving anytime or see all our posts here. The Roving series will post at least twice a month.
Two Sides - We’ll explore the relationship between two objects, ideas, or images. What makes them different or what makes them alike? From art to nature, come have a little fun with us pairing all kinds of things! Search anytime with #twosidesmoma or #sheetalp or bookmark this link. Two Sides will post twice a month.
Christian Marclay’s The Clock opens to the public tomorrow at MoMA! Today, our staff got a sneak peak of the piece and tonight, you can come to our special Pop Rally event to see the clock strike midnight with music, drinks, and more!
