The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2

Building upon the Museum’s eight-decade tradition of fostering cinematic innovation and experimentation, Modern Mondays invites artists working in the expanded field of film, video, performance, and sound to present their work in an intimate setting. A platform for both emerging artists and pioneering figures who have changed the way we think about the moving image, this series premieres new projects and rediscovers landmark works. Considering avant-garde narratives from the 21st century, the program also celebrates legacies of influential historical figures in a contemporary context. Each evening presents a unique opportunity for audiences to engage in dialogue with artists, along with curators and other guests.

An Evening with Molly Lowe
Monday, May 8, 7:00 p.m., T2
Molly Lowe, a New York–based filmmaker, sculptor, painter, and performance artist, presents the theatrical premieres of her recent films Redwood (2016, commissioned by Pioneer Works) and Formed (2013). In Redwood, a sensuous intermingling of sci-fi conjecture and family portraiture, masks and ritualistic movements—like those in Japanese Noh theater and the films of Maya Deren—are a stylized rictus of pleasure, fear, and pain. What endures, Lowe asks, when our bodies age and our minds become a tangle of memory and desire? What do we pass on to our daughters and granddaughters through our genes and through the stories we tell? Formed is a Surrealist grotesquerie involving squishy eggs, Spandex, and a wayward computer mouse; protuberant sticky tongues and cavernous orifices; cries of joy and sadness; and bodies groping, yearning, and pratfalling in the limelight.

An Evening with Filipa César
Monday, June 26, 7:00 p.m., T2
The Portuguese-born, Berlin-based artist and filmmaker Filipa César presents an evening of short films in advance of a weeklong MoMA run of her first feature, Spell Reel. César’s work exists at the intersection of fiction and documentary, exploring history, place, and identity through intertwined personal and national narratives. Characterized by rigorous structural and lyrical elements, her multiform meditations often focus on Portuguese colonialism and the liberation of Guinea-Bissau in the 1960s and 1970s. The screening will be followed by a conversation with Nuno Lisboa, 2017 Flaherty Seminar Programmer, and Sophie Cavoulacos, Assistant Curator, Department of Film. This event is presented in conjunction with the 2017 Robert Flaherty Film Seminar.

Organized by the Department of Film and the Department of Media and Performance Art.
