On Saturday at 1 p.m. EST, Elliot Reed is taking over a space at PS1 for an improvised performance, joined by award-winning choreographer, author, performer, teacher, and curator Ishmael Houston-Jones. The performance reinterprets COVID-19 precautions as a formal challenge, streamed live to a monitor onsite at the Museum and online at mo.ma/duets. Live footage of the monitor, and visitors watching it, will also be broadcast to IG Live. This tangle of multiplied feeds reflects the doubling of bodies in digital space, a conceptual extension of Reed’s work in "This Longing Vessel: Studio Museum Artists in Residence 2019–20."

Join us for a conversation between "Marking Time" artists Daniel McCarthy Clifford, Larry Cook, and Sable Elyse Smith, moderated by Mary Baxter, as they discuss the impact of mass incarceration on familial bonds, the visual lexicon of prison visiting rooms, and how their work uses the material culture of the carceral state to new ends.

Streaming at mo.ma/talks tomorrow at 12 p.m. EST, and every other Thursday through April 1, Chosen Family artist talks explore how relationships are impacted by incarceration.

Dan Herschlein | COOKING WITH ARTISTS

❤️ How to make a heart-shaped meatloaf by Mina Stone, using Dan Herschlein's family recipe. Herschlein likes to sculpt his loaf into a human head. Creeped out by an anthropomorphized meal? That's sort of the point.

In this episode of Cooking with Artists, Herschlein spoke with Mina about how his work is influenced by horror films, the scary work involved with getting to know yourself, and how the dinner table can be a dangerous place—a place where problems, dysfunctions, and differences come to light.

🤝 What does performance look like at a time of mandatory distance?

"Duets" is a new series of improvised performances by Elliot Reed featuring a single guest for a unique hour-long encounter. Reinterpreting COVID-19 precautions as a formal challenge, Reed and his guests occupy an audience-less physical space at a distance from one another while navigating institutional public health guidelines. The performances are filmed in an inaccessible location within MoMA PS1, and streamed live to a monitor onsite at the Museum and online at mo.ma/duets. Live footage of the monitor, and visitors watching it, will also be broadcast to IG Live. This tangle of multiplied feeds reflects the doubling of bodies in digital space, a conceptual extension of Reed’s work in "This Longing Vessel: Studio Museum Artists in Residence 2019–20." Experience this new work on Saturday at 1 p.m. EST, and again on February 6, February 20, and March 6

This Thursday at 12 p.m. EST, spend your lunch hour livestreaming the second installment of our new "Marking Time" Artist Talks series with artist Mary Baxter in conversation with portrait artist Sara Bennett and her subjects, Leah and Karen. To watch go to mo.ma/talks.

Bennett photographs currently and formerly incarcerated women in New York, often photographing those sentenced to life imprisonment. Rather than focusing on the everyday cruelties of prison, her photographs document the strategies and practices incarcerated women adopt to sustain life under such harsh conditions. Before she began making these photographs, Bennett worked for eighteen years as a public defender, often advocating for women survivors of abuse. Hear from her, Leah, and Karen on Thursday, and see her work in person, now on view in "Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration" at PS1.

The New York Times recommends a visit to "Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration," to honor the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. "Through April 4, the MoMA PS1 exhibition invites visitors to contemplate the rippling effects of the imprisonment of Americans, particularly Black men, on families." Featuring the work of more than 40 artists who were previously incarcerated, or deeply impacted by prison, this exhibition “complicates the definition of crime itself, expanding it beyond the courtroom into American society.”

To make sure you have a safe visit, limited admission is available by advanced online registration only and sold out for Monday, January 18. You can also experience the exhibition with our new multimedia guide on the Bloomberg Connects app anytime. Read wall text, hear from artists, and discover artworks right from your phone.

Subject Matters: Mary Baxter

"This is not a new story...this is a continued narrative of collective struggle that Black people have endured for the last 400 years."

Mary Enoch Elizabeth Baxter (Isis Tha Saviour) is a Philly-based artist, activist, and musician featured in our current exhibition "Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration." In this episode of Subject Matters, we talk with Baxter about "The Fall of America," a new video she created in response to the Black Lives Matter protests, the disproportionate impact of COVID-19 on people of color, and attempts at voter disenfranchisement during the 2020 presidential election. "Post-election, this is where the real work starts, this is where we hold our elected officials accountable. What we saw on January 6th was a stark contrast to how Black people and our allies were treated during this past summer's protests against systemic racism, police brutality, and the state sanctioned murders of Breonna Taylor and George Floyd."

Hear more from the artist during a new series of artist talks moderated by Baxter, streaming every other Thursday at 12 p.m. EST. This week, Baxter speaks with artist Sara Bennett and her portrait subjects, formerly incarcerated women. For more info and to watch go to mo.ma/talks.

"The Fall of America" was recently featured in the exhibition "Rendering Justice" at the African American Museum in Philadelphia. Watch Mary's video in full on their website at mo.ma/aamp

Subject Matters artist interviews explore contemporary social, economic, and political issues through the lens of artwork—the featured artists are committed to bringing greater awareness to urgent matters.

In the first episode of Chosen Family, Mary Baxter spoke with her fellow artists in "Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration," Jesse Krimes, Jared Owens, and Gilberto Rivera about what it means to form relationships in prison, and how it helps bridge the transition to freedom post-release. This group of artists formed a fellowship while incarcerated at Fairton, making art together and offering art classes to others.

Next Thursday at 12 p.m. EST, join the conversation live at mo.ma/talks and click through to YouTube to submit questions in the chat for the Q&A. Mary will be in conversation with artist Sara Bennett and her portrait subjects, formerly incarcerated women.

How does incarceration impact existing relationships, and how can art construct new forms of connection—a “chosen family”—in turn? A new series of artist talks moderated by Mary Enoch Elizabeth Baxter brings her fellow artists in "Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration" together to consider how bonds are forged through and around creative practice in the face of state-imposed separation.

Streaming every other Thursday beginning January 7 at 12 p.m. EST, these lunchtime live conversations will be available to view at mo.ma/talks.

First up this Thursday, Baxter is in conversation with Jesse Krimes, Jared Owens, and Gilberto Rivera, who formed an art collective while incarcerated in New Jersey's Federal Correctional Institution, Fairton. With their peers, they studied art history while mentoring other artists and leading classes in ceramics, painting, and drawing. Each artist incorporates the materials of prison into their work, inverting the material ownership of incarceration and challenging the stigma associated with serving time. The works pictured here include bits of uniforms, floor wax, soil from a prison yard, and bed sheets.

"The United States imprisons more people than any other country on earth. This compelling exhibition at MoMA PS1, guest-curated by the art historian Nicole R. Fleetwood, shared works by some three dozen visionaries, some of whom are or have been incarcerated themselves." – Andrea K. Scott for The New Yorker

You're in luck. The best art of 2020, according to The New Yorker, is still on view at PS1. See it yourself by pre-booking a visit at mo.ma/ps1tickets and catch "Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration" and "This Longing Vessel: Studio Museum Artists in Residence 2019–20" with limited capacity in the galleries.

Entering 2021 ✨ This drawing by "Marking Time" artist Cedar Mortenson was made with pencil and colored pencil on a paper lunch sack. The artist shared this benediction along with their work, and we share it with you now as we say farewell to 2020: "People write books about grief. How to deal with it, the steps to recovery, but who really knows one's own heart. It's got to heal on its own. I'm headed back up towards the light brighter than ever before. I want to be as proactive as possible about the issues I believe in, and contribute with my ideas, artwork, writing, speaking, love, and expression."

PS1 is open 12–4 p.m. today and closed on January 1. Book ahead to see our current exhibitions this weekend by reserving your tickets online at mo.ma/ps1tickets

Working in his cell at night, artist Dean Gillispie created dozens of miniatures, often relying on friends he made in prison to bring him materials for his art like sewing pins, small lights, beads, wire, and other items not permitted in the prison.

Gillispie is on the board of Ohio Innocence Project, which secured his release from imprisonment due to wrongful conviction. “It doesn’t matter, innocence or guilt, they’re still coming out. They’re still humans. They’re still people,” he states, asking, “Why are we treating people so wrongly in America?”

Still haven't seen "Marking Time: Art in the Age of Mass Incarceration?" Now's your chance to visit safely with the galleries at limited capacity. PS1 is open 12–4 p.m. today and closed tomorrow, December 25. Reservations are available online for visits throughout the weekend: mo.ma/ps1tickets

Whether you're celebrating alone or with your pod this year, find comfort in family recipes from Mina Stones' Cooking with Artists series. Our favorite chef-in-residence has mined her community of artists for sweet and savory recipes to recreate at home, along with morsels of wisdom and heartwarming anecdotes about what food means to them. Follow along as Mina makes nine artists' recipes, from Hugh Hayden's cornbread pudding to Jannis Varelas's more ambitious (and very Greek) roast lamb, and much more. You'll find it all at mo.ma/cookingwithartists #MoMAMagazine

💌 Make your own postcards to send to loved ones during this isolating holiday season and support USPS!

A public mail system is a critical part of our democracy and one that is increasingly under threat. In response, Lily Consuelo Saporta Tagiuri asked 14 artists to design a postcard to raise awareness and money through the purchase of stamps for the USPS. You can download these designs and create your own at mo.ma/usps

When drawing a front consider these questions: What do you feel passionate about other people knowing? What do you feel is urgent? Who do you need to communicate with? How can we spread joy to the people delivering these cards? How can we communicate love to those receiving these cards?

Excerpted from a zine made by Lily Consuelo Saporta Tagiuri. Find it and other zines onsite and online in Homeroom, our hub for participatory engagement, community partnerships, and the exploration of ideas encountered at PS1 and throughout our history as a site for contemporary art and learning at mo.ma/homeroom
