Starting today, The Fortune Society activates Homeroom with art, poetry, and resources created by the artists and mentors in their Creative Arts program. Located within walking distance of the museum, The Fortune Society supports successful reentry from and alternatives to incarceration.

In addition to exploring Fortune's artistry, visitors are invited to write post cards to stand in solidarity with community members who are currently detained at Rikers Island and watch "We Choose to Bloom," a film set on Rashid Johnson’s "Stage" and produced over a year-long collaboration between Fortune artists and PS1.

✨The activation also includes "We Are More Than a Label," a “language matters” zine created by Fortune community members and produced especially for PS1! Pick up a copy on site or download the zine at mo.ma/homeroom. 👩🏽‍💻

The space is envisioned to ignite opportunities for connection, learning, continued creativity, and collective change. Reserve your timed tickets at mo.ma/ps1tickets.

➡️ 𝙃𝙤𝙢𝙚𝙧𝙤𝙤𝙢 amplifies and celebrates the work of collectives, organizations, artists, and activists that are connected to MoMA PS1’s public programming and community allyship initiatives.

Cooking With Artists with Meriem Bennani

“Food feels parallel to language, your mother tongue. When you live far away from where you’re from, you have the same relationship to your language as to your food. These two things relate to your primary understanding of the world and your mode of expression.”—artist Meriem Bennani

Brooklyn-based artist from Morocco Meriem Bennani spoke with Mina Stone for our next #CookingWithArtists about chermoula fish balls, Bennani's own re-creation of a traditional Moroccan dish that usually uses ground beef.

Meriem creates films and installations, many of which include sculptures, furniture, and architecture that create an immersive environment. Meriem’s installations use elements of documentary as a springboard into myth, surprise, and the unpredictable. Read the full conversation and find the recipe at mo.ma/meriem

Artists on Artworks with Anthea Hamilton

In the last installment of "Artists on Artworks," Anthea Hamilton explores the significance on the female form in #NikkideSaintPhalle's work and how Saint Phalle's fearless approach in her representation of women and her invitation of audience interaction—forces in a playful way conversations on the female body that have never been discussed.

"Hon – en katedral really spoke to me, it was like the way that you keep an imagery around in the studio, in a book, or in your desktop. You're not necessarily sure that you'll do something with it but it seems kind of true to you, kind of like a text or a manifesto. It's like seeing something you recognize from the past but kind of think you might meet in the future and its not necessarily that you'll think that your work might move in similar ways but it holds some kinds of keys of truth to it about what you think the experience of making art can be."

Artists on Artworks: Matt Wolf

Filmmaker Matt Wolf explores the joyful, and sometimes dark, visions of matriarchy constructed by Niki de Saint Phalle.

"It makes me think about world-building and how for a woman, an artist of Niki's generation, that part of the way to reimagine the world is to take away and steal the fire of men, and that's amazing."

In our next installment of "Artist on Artwork," Matt Wolf discusses Niki de Saint Phalle's "The Traveling Companion," an experimental pilot for a children's television show produced in the 1970's. Wolf is a filmmaker based in NYC, whose work includes "Spaceship Earth," about another utopian project, the Biosphere 2.

This Green Is Not Green Book Launch

In case you missed it, Artbook at MoMA PS1 hosted a conversation with artists Hanaa Malallah, art historians Nada Shabout and Saleem Al-Bahloly and curator Venetia Porter, moderated by Ruba Katrib, to celebrate the release of Malallah's new book, "This Green is Not Green: Letters Between Shakir Hassan Al Sa'id and Hanaa Malallah," both artists featured in the 2019 exhibition "Theater of Operations: The Gulf Wars 1991-2011."

Comprised of twelve letters written by Al Sa'id in 1996 and eleven responses by Malallah from the decades after his death, the book finds the two artists—the avant-garde and the garde of Middle Eastern modernism—in otherworldly correspondence. Their intimate, expansive dialogue ranges from mystical theology to Arab existentialism to ancient Mesopotamia and the modern Middle East. The letters are also profoundly personal, detailing their childhoods, their art practices and the crises and struggles that made them the artists they became.

Today we contemplate the 🌎 with Chiquita Brujita. To illuminate Niki de Saint Phalle’s use of the tarot in her art, we are working with artists and tarot practitioners to delve into the deeper meanings of the Major Arcana, the 22 major archetype cards of a standard tarot deck. The World is the last card in the set, and represents success and fulfillment. Read more from Chiquita:

“When we think of the world do we experience wonder? Does it elicit joy at the infinite possibilities for creation and exploration? Or paralysis from the overwhelming suffering we can never fully solve?

As the final step in the Fool's journey through the Major Arcana, the World reminds us the answer is always a balance. In closing the Major Arcana, the World card appears to remind us of our divine wisdom, lifetime of hard-learned lessons, and boundless infinite potential. The World cries loudly to all who may have forgotten or not yet know: 'Life is an endless whirl! There is no end. The joy is in the journey.'

Niki de Saint Phalle's World Arcana "Nana" has heard these cries. With her tippity-toe extension she is a beautiful embodiment of the joy of liberation from the woes of the world and the powerful energy of ascension.

How do you embody freedom? What might it look like to know you have the whole world within you and all you need to do for joy is twirl to your next adventure?”
