Juliana Huxtable performances on November 13th and 14th at 7pm.
For the 30th anniversary of MoMA’s New Photography series the museum is presenting Ocean of Images. The exhibit probes the effects of an image-based post-Internet reality and offers perspectives from 19 photographers and collectives from 14 countries. Ocean of Images will also include commissions made specifically for the exhibition and a special performance by artist and nightlife impresario Juliana Huxtable. Titled There Are Certain Facts that Cannot Be Disputed, her performance will consider the Web’s evolution and its role as an endless resource for complex narratives.

Jackson Pollock: A Collection Survey tracks Pollock’s artistic evolution from the 1930s and early 1940s, when he made loosely figurative images based on mythical or primeval themes, to the late 1940s and early 1950s, when he pioneered the radical abstractions for which he is best known by pouring and dripping paint onto canvas or paper. The exhibition features approximately 50 works—paintings, drawings, and prints—from the Museum’s collection. Among the paintings on view is “One: Number 31, 1950” (1950), arguably Pollock’s greatest masterpiece, and one of his largest canvases.
Through February 7th, 2016
Picasso Sculpture is a sweeping survey of Pablo Picasso’s innovative and influential work in three dimensions and focuses on his use of materials and processes. The exhibition, which features more than 100 sculptures, complemented by selected works on paper and photographs, aims to advance the understanding of what sculpture was for Picasso, and of how he revolutionized its history through a lifelong commitment to constant reinvention.
