Unfinished Conversations:
New Work from the Collection

Through July 30

The Museum of Modern Art

Unfinished Conversations: New Work from the Collection brings together works by more than a dozen artists, made in the past decade and recently acquired by The Museum of Modern Art. The artists that make up this intergenerational selection address current anxiety and unrest around the world and offer critical reflections on our present moment.
The exhibition considers the intertwining themes of social protest, the effect of history on the formation of identity, and how art juxtaposes fact and fiction. From Cairo to St. Petersburg, from The Hague to Recife, the artists in the exhibition observe and interpret acts of state violence and the resistance and activism they provoke. They reexamine historical moments, evoking images of the past and claiming their places within it. They take on contemporary struggles for power, intervening into debates about government surveillance and labor exploitation. Together, these artists look back to traditions both within and beyond the visual arts to imagine possibilities for an uncertain future.
The title of this exhibition is inspired by John Akomfrah’s three-channel video installationThe Unfinished Conversation (2012), which is included here and chronicles the life and work of the Jamaican-born British cultural theorist Stuart Hall (1932–2014). Hall recognized the power that museum collections have to both shape and reflect culture and communities, contending that they are sources of inspiration “which create thought-provoking visions of our past. They provide testimony to the darkest and brightest of human history.”
Unfinished Conversations includes works by John Akomfrah, Jonathas de Andrade, Anna Boghiguian, Andrea Bowers, Paul Chan, Simon Denny, Samuel Fosso, Iman Issa, Kim Beom, Erik van Lieshout, Cameron Rowland, Wolfgang Tillmans, Adrián Villar Rojas, Kara Walker, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
Organized by Klaus Biesenbach, Chief Curator at Large, The Museum of Modern Art, and Director, MoMA PS1; Lucy Gallun, Assistant Curator, Department of Photography; Thomas J. Lax, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art; Christian Rattemeyer, The Harvey S. Shipley Miller Associate Curator, Department of Drawings and Prints; and Yasmil Raymond, Associate Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, with Elizabeth Henderson, Department Coordinator, Office of the Chief Curator at Large.

PAID FOR BY ORGANIZING FOR ACTION.



2017 BRAZIL ECONOMIC CONFERENCE

Join Us on October 13, 2017Time: 5:00 AM to 2:30 PMLocation: Hall of Flags, Washington, Washington

Organizing for Action


Today, the Senate voted to proceed with debate on Obamacare opponents' disastrous repeal plan.

Make no mistake: Repealing Obamacare would harm millions of Americans -- our friends, our family, our neighbors -- who rely on Medicaid, who were born with a pre-existing condition, or who are bravely battling cancer. Moving forward with a plan to take care away from those depending on Obamacare's protections isn't just irresponsible -- it's appalling.

But this isn't over. OFA supporters and volunteers will continue fighting back against this law's repeal. And with Senate leaders rushing toward a final vote, we don't have much time.

So tomorrow, Valerie Jarrett, former Senior Advisor and Director of the Office of Public Engagement during the Obama administration, will join us on a health care briefing call to discuss what we can do next.

We'll go over how we can keep putting pressure on elected officials, and making sure they're acting in the interests of the people they were elected to represent. I hope you can join us -- here are the details for the call:

Date: Tomorrow, July 26
Time: 8pm ET
