Christina Ha reports on what's happening in museums, galleries, and performance spaces around town, including MoMA's abstract expressionist exhibit, Handel's "Messiah" jazzed up, and Edward Hopper at The Whitney.

A look at MoMA’s new exhibition, “The Original Copy: Photography of Sculpture, 1839 to Today.”

Is there any artist more pleasing than Matisse (1869-1954) — his intoxicating palette, his depiction of life’s basic delights and joys, his simple approach to the human form? Probably not, but he also pursued abstraction with rigor, as evident in MoMA‘s exhibition, Matisse: Radical Invention, 1913-1917, on view through October 11. During this period, he [...]

It’s natural to associate MoMA with cutting-edge. But a visit to Marina Abramović: The Artist Is Present retrospective on view through May 31 is a reminder of just how staid the institution is, nominally ignoring performance art. Here are actual live people doing re-performances of the artist’s original works, which have nearly always involved herself [...]

William Kentridge’s drawing style is so bold and lively that it hardly needs animation to bring it to life. And yet his animated films crackle with energy, just like anything he creates, despite the fact that it is nearly entirely done with rare, hence extremely effective, daubs of color. A survey of his work is [...]

In this SundayArts Choice get a look into a world filled with creatures, monsters, and mad doctors. Ron Magliozzi, assistant curator in the Department of Film at MoMA, gives a tour of the Tim Burton exhibit, a retrospective featuring his early work as well as a large number of his unrealized projects.

Bauhaus 1919-1933: Workshops for Modernity at MoMA doesn’t knock you over with huge masterworks (despite the presence of some big name painters), or with pop culture bribes, like the Tim Burton exhibition elsewhere in the building (recently reviewed for the SundayArts blog here). What this kind of sprawling survey does convey is how that design [...]

We should thank our lucky stars that Tim Burton (b. 1958) doesn’t seem to be a compulsive cleaner, otherwise we might not be able to see the wide range of his drawings and doodles—from recent to back when he was just a kid, predating the several years he spent at Disney—that are part of MOMA’s [...]

From toddlers to teens, to people with Alzheimer’s and physical disabilities, the Museum of Modern Art has programs that provide a rich museum experience for everybody.

This week’s SundayArts Choice looks at a decade of experimental projects from the Young Architects Program. This competition, organized by the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center and The Museum of Modern Art, asks young architects to design outdoor structures that provide an ingenious interplay of shade, water and robust seating — essential elements for the thousands [...]
