8 months ago Can you outsmart the machine? Machine learning technology integrated into our exhibition history allows us to easily identify two of the three iconic artists who created the works pictured in our “Open Ends” exhibition (September 28, 2000–March 4, 2001). But three dimensional works like sculptures elude the technology’s grasp. Can you name the unidentified work?

8 months ago Identifying each work of art in an old exhibition photo doesn’t sound so hard, does it? Now multiply that one photo by 30,000—that’s how many installation images make up MoMA’s exhibition history. See how we’re connecting the dots of #MoMAhistory with machine learning and computer vision technology in collaboration with Google Arts & Culture Lab ( @googleartsculture): mo.ma/machinelearning (link in bio) #GoogleArts
8 months ago Announcing this year's Young Architects Program winner, Jennifer Newsom and Tom Carruthers of Dream The Combine! The winning design is a responsive, kinetic environment featuring large-scale mirrors that move with the wind or human touch, creating dislocating views and unexpected spatial relationships within the @MoMAPS1 courtyard and onto the streets outside. Opening at MoMA PS1 in June, the installation will serve as a temporary urban landscape for the 21st season of Warm Up. Learn more about the winning design at moma.org/yap. #YAP2018#DreamTheCombine

8 months ago “At a moment when our culture is clashing on a daily basis, art has the power to cut through the barbed wire we have wrapped around our fences.” – @oprah

8 months ago Not all good movies were designed to win #Oscars. Explore independent films of the Golden Age of Hollywood—though never meant to break the box office, these “B” movies were an indispensable part of the era. MoMA film curator Dave Kehr dives into the films of the Republic Pictures Library, recently restored by Martin Scorsese and Paramount in a new episode of "HOW TO SEE" on youtube.com/moma (direct link in bio)

8 months ago Our exhibition of #TaniaBruguera’s “Untitled (Havana, 2000)” mimics the work's original setting, the Cabaña Fortress—a repurposed military bunker used as a prison for political prisoners during the Cuban Revolution. Then and now, Bruguera conjures the ghosts of the fortress, and invites us to have a physical experience of the darkest days of her country’s political history. On view through March 11. #TaniaBruguera
Please note: The installation will be closed on Mondays for maintenance. Visit mo.ma/bruguera for more information.
