Planning a visit to MoMA is irresistible this season. The first-ever retrospective of the widely admired artist Robert Gober is now on view, featuring over 130 deeply compelling works exploring themes such as sex, death, and domesticity. Be sure to reserve your timed tickets for Henri Matisse: The Cut-Outs today—they’re selling fast. Explore notions of authorship through the artist Sturtevant’s “repeats” of work by Warhol, Johns, and Haring; discover what six teams of architects, urban planners, and designers envision for the future of rapidly growing megacities; and experience our newest media acquisitions, featuring 1980s TV footage, touchscreen technology, and more.
Later in the month, MoMA will show some of this year’s best films in a line-up called The Contenders. With films like Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel and Lars von Trier’s Nymphomaniac on the line-up, see them on the big screen while you still have the chance.
In addition to the exhibitions being shown in November at MoMA, the museum will also be hosting two celebratory evenings. On Saturday, November 8, the museum will extend their hours until 10 p.m.—the Matisse exhibition will also be open late— and in The Agnes Gund Garden Lobby, there’ll be music and cocktails to kick off the holiday season. And on November 15 at 5:30 p.m., MoMA will celebrate its 85th birthday, which includes an intimate tour of the galleries after the museum closes to the public.
