In Character: Daniel Craig

March 03, 2020 – March 22, 2020

The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, and the MoMA Stores in New York City have closed temporarily. 

On the eve of Daniel Craig’s final installment as James Bond in No Time To Die this spring, we trace his career from European art house films to top Hollywood productions. Though he is internationally famous thanks to five megahit 007 adaptations, Craig has always had a character actor’s generosity to go with a leading man’s easy confidence, and his talent has consistently attracted top-flight directors, as you’ll see in some of the names in this series: Steven Spielberg, David Fincher, and Sam Mendes, to name just a few. Craig joins us in person on March 3 to present a screening of Casino Royale.


Organized by Sean Egan, Senior Producer, and Olivia Priedite, Senior Program Assistant, Department of Film.


Film at MoMA is made possible by CHANEL. 

Support for the exhibition is provided by the Annual Film Fund. Leadership support for the Annual Film Fund is provided by Steven Tisch, with major contributions from Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder, Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP), The Brown Foundation, Inc., of Houston, Marlene Hess and James D. Zirin, Karen and Gary Winnick, and The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art.
