Modern Matinees: On The Move

May 01, 2019 – May 09, 2019

The Museum of Modern Art

In October we’re opening an expanded MoMA, inspired in new ways by our founding mission to be an experimental museum of modern and contemporary art. In order to prepare for that exciting occasion, we are placing Modern Matinees on temporary hiatus. In the meantime, the quintet of films in this condensed May series, all drawn from MoMA’s collection, embrace the spirit of conversion, transformation, and new possibilities.

Organized by Anne Morra, Associate Curator, Department of Film.


Support for the exhibition is provided by the Annual Film Fund. Leadership support for the Annual Film Fund is provided by the Kate W. Cassidy Foundation and Steven Tisch, with major contributions from Jo Carole and Ronald S. Lauder, Association of Independent Commercial Producers (AICP), Yuval Brisker Charitable Foundation, 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.
