As we head into the Thanksgiving holiday this week, the blog will be on hiatus until Monday, November 30. But before we sign off here’s a round-up of what to see and do when you’re not eating turkey, watching football, or bargain shopping.
• Our latest exhibition, which opened yesterday, features works from the collection by Jackson Pollock—including his most famous painting, One: Number 31, 1950, along with other canvases, drawings, and rare prints. It’s a must-see look at the artist’s inventiveness and creative process.
• Don’t miss a Modern Mondays evening with avant-garde filmmaker Ernie Gehr, when—in conjunction with his proto-cinema installation CARNIVAL OF SHADOWS (currently on view in the galleries)—he will present the New York premiere of recent video work.
• On Tuesday, as part of The Contenders 2015, filmmakers Guy Maddin and Evan Johnson introduce a screening of The Forbidden Room, their delirious and fantastical tribute to classic cinema.
• Join a special Holiday Highlights evening tour on Wednesday after the Museum closes to the public, and take in beloved artworks, including Van Gogh’s The Starry Night, Monet’s Water Lilies, and Dalí’s The Persistence of Memory.
• The Museum is closed on Thursday in observance of Thanksgiving. On behalf of all the staff at MoMA, we offer our sincere thanks to our members, visitors, and other supporters for making the art and ideas that we present possible. Thank you!
