Modern Mondays

The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art’s annual Modern Mondays series, which celebrates moving-image experimentation and innovation, returns on September 11, 2023, and will continue through May 2024. The series welcomes an international and intergenerational roster of artists, working at the forefront of the medium, to share their work with an intimate audience at MoMA.

This long-running screening series builds upon the legacy of MoMA’s Cineprobe (1968- 2002) and Video Viewpoints (1978-2002) programs, and each evening presents a unique opportunity for audiences to engage in dialogue with the artists, along with curators and other guests. Often premiering new films or building on concurrent MoMA exhibitions through in-depth dialogue, Modern Mondays is a platform for both emerging artists and trailblazing figures shaping moving-image culture today.

Upcoming Modern Mondays:

March 4: An Evening with Gelare Khoshgozaran

March 11: An Evening with Haig Aivazian

March 18: An Evening with Josiah McElheny and Jeff Preiss

April 22: An Evening with Ayoung Kim

April 29: An Evening with Joan Jonas

All programs take place in MoMA’s Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters at 7:00 p.m. on selected Monday evenings. Additional programs to be announced. Tickets go on sale beginning at 10:30 a.m. one week prior to the screening date, or two weeks prior for MoMA members, at moma.org/film.

Organized by the Department of Film and the Department of Media and Performance, and overseen by Sophie Cavoulacos, Associate Curator, Department of Film.
