It’s not over til it’s over—so think of this week as a summer bonus. Here are the highlights:
• Through Thursday, catch screenings of J.P. Sniadecki’s evocative documentary The Iron Ministry, which captures workers and passengers on China’s elaborate railway network over a three-year period.
• Drop by the exhibition Making Music Modern: Design for Ear and Eye on Tuesday at 12:30 p.m. for Stratocaster Sessions, when a MoMA staff member will play a recently acquired 1957 Fender Stratocaster guitar and 1959 Bassman amp live in the gallery.
• Don’t miss the final MoMA Nights of the season, when singer Tei Shi performs in the Sculpture Garden (6:30 p.m.), with an opening DJ set by Newtown Radio’s Lomé, (5:30 p.m.). The Museum galleries also stay open until 8:00 p.m., with refreshments and drinks available at our cafés and Garden Bar.
• Weather permitting, enjoy some sunshine and sketching on Friday at 11:30 a.m. during Drawing in the Sculpture Garden: Exploring the Monumental, a Gallery Sessions program examining the effects of scale, medium, and perspective.
• Join us on Saturday at 6:00 p.m. for Toast and Tour: Andy Warhol to see the exhibition Andy Warhol: Campbell’s Soup Cans and Other Works, 1953–1967, along with other Pop art icons, after the Museum closes to the public. Before the tour enjoy prosecco and some treats for a toast to the artist.
• Summer vibes continue at MoMA PS1 on Saturday with this week’s Warm Up party, featuring sets by Matias Aguayo, Kingdom, D∆WN, DJ Windows 98, Murlo, and FALSE WITNESS. While you’re there be sure to see Samara Golden’s largest installation to date, The Flat Side of the Knife, which closes on Sunday.
• Also on Saturday, Ingrid Bergman: A Centennial Celebration—the Department of Film’s tribute to the cinema star on the 100th anniversary of her birth—kicks off with a screening of Casablanca introduced by Bergman’s daughters Pia Lindström and Isabella Rossellini.
