Offsite or at the Museum, here’s what you won’t want to miss this week:
• Tonight, watch the live stream of a special program celebrating Marcel Broodthaers’s lifelong relationship with the written word. This intimate poetry reading in the exhibition galleries featuring poets Jen Bervin, Craig Dworkin, Tonya Foster, Christian Hawkey, Tan Lin, and Mónica de la Torre reading works by the artist along with a selection of their own in response. And make sure you stop by to see the exhibition before it closes on Sunday.
• Make your own print at MoMA Books on Tuesday, during our latest hands-on workshop, Degas in Process: Making a Monotype. Artists from the EFA Robert Blackburn Printmaking Workshop will introduce contemporary approaches to the monotype printmaking process. Sign-up is required.
• On Thursday, get into the galleries and experiment with Degas’s Endless Repetition, with a Gallery Session activity involving tracing, inversion, and recombination.
• A tribute to Universal Studios and its risk-taking head of production, Carl Laemmle, Jr., opens on Friday with the revival premiere of the 1930 musical King of Jazz, shown in its full-length, two-color Technicolor version. Other upcoming highlights include The Kiss Before the Mirror (1933) and Broadway (1929).
• Tune in on Sunday evening for the live stream of Is Fashion Modern? A Salon. This special program reprises the question in Bernard Rudofsky’s 1944 MoMA exhibition Are Clothes Modern? and presents four distinguished speakers on how the designs we wear shape us and the worlds we inhabit.
