May–June 2013 at MoMA
Beginning May 1, the Museum is open to the public seven days a week, offering members and visitors alike the chance to do and see even more at MoMA. Along with this exciting announcement, new exhibitions fill the galleries, including recent acquisitions in contemporary photography, video installations by Akram Zaatari in the 100th edition of The Elaine Dannheisser Projects Series, and Ellsworth Kelly's Chatham Series, presented for the first time since its 1972 debut. Opening June 15, Le Corbusier: An Atlas of Modern Landscapes is New York's first comprehensive survey of the architectural master, which in concert with Henri Labrouste: Structure Brought to Light (closing June 24) offers an unprecedented exploration of the modern age of architecture at MoMA.
In the theaters, avant-garde filmmaker Ken Jacobs selects influential films from MoMA's collection along with his own works, including the world premiere of his four-part Waiting for the Broadway Bus cycle. The Department of Film also pays tribute to Celeste Bartos—a MoMA trustee for four decades who was an ardent supporter of the Museum's film collection.
