Modern Mondays

The Museum of Modern Art

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.

Fall 2021 program:

The long-running moving-image series Modern Mondays continues in a format curated for MoMA’s Virtual Cinema streaming platform, tapping into dynamic approaches to the moving image, presenting new work from emerging and pioneering artists, and exploring questions of digital connectedness and circulation. Rather than seeking to replace the intimacy of the theater, the program takes on the potential for synergy across MoMA’s physical and digital platforms, hybrid formats, and the ability to connect with viewers beyond the Museum’s walls.
