From Vincent van Gogh’s The Starry Night to Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel, MOMA’s painting and sculpture galleries are incredible to look at. But tonight, you can engage with these works in new, unexpected ways, too, thanks to the creativity of the emerging artists at Recess art space. For this edition of MOMA’s PopRally parties, artists including A.K. Burns, Kara Hearn, and Laura Vitale will be staging various performances in the galleries inspired by the works. Imagine the women in Picasso’s Les Demoiselles d’Avignon coming to life, receiving a dream interpretation in the Surrealism gallery, or collecting each work as a trading card on a “Lookbook” tour. Plus, take in a “musical performance” by the group Title TK (Cory Arcangel, Howie Chen, and Alan Licht), who apparently don’t play music at all but instead chat about bands and the industry while their instruments sit nearby.
