“Most of the world is declared for us. Art is one of the only moments that we have such rigorous say in.” — Malcolm Peacock

In our latest UNIQLO ArtSpeaks, artist Malcolm Peacock explores Pope.L’s provocative work “The Great White Way.”

Pope.L, who passed away in December at the age of 68, was an agitator and humorist who used his own body to examine division and inequality on the streets and stages of New York City and in the more rustic environs of Maine, where he taught for 20 years.

Artist Minnie Evans didn’t put pen to paper for her first ink drawings until she was in her early forties. “Something told me to draw or die,” the artist recalled.

Evans used pigmented wax crayons to create colorful and complex linear patterns that evoke animals, plants, and spiritual symbols, reflecting the connections she perceived between the earthly and the divine.

Designer has selected works from MoMA’s collection that explore Black style, gesture, performance, sound, and beyond. See this and more on view now → mo.ma/gracewalesbonner

The Black Arts Movement in the United States brought together Black artists and intellectuals in the 1960s and 1970s. Using literature, theater, and the visual arts, the movement emphasized artmaking rooted in Black history and identity, emphasizing pride and empowerment at a time when Black people around the world were engaged in struggles for liberation and equality.

“What makes America America? The wilderness, the vastness, our sense of history.” — An-My Lê

Artist An-My Lê’s series Silent General—titled for a text about Ulysses S. Grant, the eighteenth US President, by the American poet Walt Whitman—examines contemporary politics and history in the United States, illuminating battles over race, migration, and belonging.

For 30 years, the photographs of artist An-My Lê have engaged how we understand and reflect on conflict. See , the first exhibition to present Lê’s powerful photographs alongside her forays into film, video, textiles, and sculpture, on view now at MoMA.

🐠 Let’s dive into Pisces season! 🧜‍♀️

This sign is known for being the most empathetic and compassionate of those on the astrological wheel. Though guided by a sea of emotions, these fish embrace spontaneity and love to go with the flow.

How are you swimming in the currents of imagination and intuition this season?

“It’s all about honoring the spirit of the artist.” — Jacob Samuel

In 1988 master printer Jacob Samuel began inviting painters, sculptors, photographers, and even performance artists to collaborate with him, assisting them in adapting the 500-year-old printing technique of etching to their own artistic visions.

To prepare an etching, an artist makes marks on a copper plate. The printer, harnessing acid, ink, and a powerful printing press, transfers those marks to paper, creating distinctive works of art. Samuel eventually developed portable tools that enabled him to bring the process directly to artist studios all over the world. In turn, their experimentation propelled his craft.

Discover how Samuel brought more than 60 contemporary artists’ visions to life in a new exhibition, , on view now at MoMA. Learn more → mo.ma/newground

Is this the original situationship?

René Magritte’s “The Lovers” depicts a passionate kiss between distant and mysterious lovers.

Exploring the common theme of frustrated desires in Magritte’s work, a barrier of fabric prevents the intimate embrace between two lovers, creating the feeling of isolation and frustration for an act that is meant to be loving and passionate.

Through the pursuit of connection, Magritte’s surrealist imagery compels us to question the depth and authenticity of our own relationships.

🐲 What are you hoping for in the year of the dragon?

Also known as the Spring Festival in China, Lunar New Year celebrates the arrival of spring and the beginning of a new year on the lunar calendar. This year, February 10 marks the beginning of the year of the dragon, and people across New York City and the world are celebrating with food, family, and tradition.

For this month’s Drawn to MoMA, we invited artist Singha Hon to reflect on her relationship to the holiday and what the new year might bring.

“The wood dragon, to me, makes me think of springtime and growth,” Singha Hon explains. “Wood also feels like optimism and courage—the ability to turn sunlight and water into new life.”

“Art for me now must develop from a necessity within my people. It must answer a question, or wake somebody up, or give a shove in the right direction—our liberation.” — Elizabeth Catlett

In 1946 Elizabeth Catlett created the series “The Black Woman,”that chronicled the oppression and resilience of subjects such as field laborers, domestic workers, historic abolitionists, and civil rights activists “to try to make people see them as beautiful, dignified, strong people instead of, as Ralph Ellison says, ‘invisible.’”

Throughout the years, her belief in the power of her art to encourage change and reform perceptions of her people never wavered.

See “The Black Woman” series on view now in our fifth-floor galleries.

👃 Take a deep breath. What do you smell?

Our sense of smell is something many of us take for granted, but this sensation is more powerful than you may think. Smell can also play an important role in art, with many artists using scent as a way to prompt questions.

Artist Takako Saito imagines a new way to play chess where our nose is just as important as our brain — pieces that appear the same are differentiated by their smell.

👃 Hear neuroscientist Rachel Herz discuss how smell influences everything from emotions and relationships to identity and wellbeing. Listen on → mo.ma/3Oe37U0

01/23/2024

What is our place in the universe? In its size and complexity, it exists at a scale that is fundamentally ungraspable by humans and to comprehend it, we have developed tools of perception and abstraction.

With each revolution in thought or scientific innovation comes the need to dramatically reconfigure our sense of scale and place. In today’s world, the digital storage of the touchstones of our daily lives (documents, messages, books, music, movies, etc.) evades our ability to fathom its volume through visual or embodied perception.

If scale is no longer just a function of size but rather more so now of complexity, what new tools for understanding are necessary?

Explore questions of Scale in our next R&D Salon, streaming live on our YouTube Channel on January 29 at 6pm → mo.ma/4b3JRm4

MoMA R&D Salons, hosted by Paola Antonelli, explore the role of museums as the R&D of society, convening intense conversations on topics ranging from AI to protest, death, breathing, and our relationship with dogs.

And the Oscar goes to… MoMA! 🏆

In 1979, a priceless, notoriously-difficult-to-obtain object was awarded to the Museum, one unlike any other in our collection.

MoMA was presented with an Oscar at the 51st Academy Awards in recognition of the Museum’s “contributions to the public’s perception of movies as an art form.”

Celebrate today’s nominations by watching our Chief Curator of Film Rajendra Roy give us a brief history of the awards and the Museum’s win → mo.ma/3iwHfTr

What song would you pair with this artwork?

Musician Antonio Sánchez feels what he sees in our galleries while connecting art with music. Sánchez paired Jackson Po***ck’s “One: Number 31, 1950” with Steve Reich’s “Electric Counterpoint III. Fast.”

“The notes and lines on the music feel like they are suspended in the canvas interacting and intertwining with each other just like Po***ck’s masterful work. Infinite possibilities and combinations.”

“Art is a harmony parallel to nature.” — Paul Cézanne

🎂 Happy birthday to Cézanne, who was born on this day in 1839!

Throughout his decades-long career, dedicated himself to continuously experimenting with his materials and techniques in an effort to record his sensations on paper and canvas.

’s consistent subjects ranged from natural landscapes to fruit and kitchen utensils to portraits of himself and family members to group bathers. By representing the world around him, Cézanne pushed the boundaries of seeing, paving the way for further developments in abstraction in the 20th century, from Pablo Picasso to Henri Matisse and beyond.
