Exhibition
Apr 11, 2015 - Jun 14, 2015

Mexico City–based artist Mario García Torres creates cinematic narratives that explore obscure histories and personalities associated with conceptual art of the 1960s and 1970s. He presents his projects in a variety of media, including video, installation, photography, and sculpture, and he often uses antiquated technology, such as 16-mm film and slide projections, to parallel the era he is revisiting. For each work, García Torres researches evidence and myths related to relatively unknown events from the larger, more well-known moments of that specific period in art history.

Tour
Apr 17, 2015

The aim of the Slow Art movement is to break with the often frenetic pace of modern life to simply enjoy works of art in a deliberate and unhurried fashion. Slow Art at the Modern invests in this pause with a 30-minute spotlight tour focusing on one work of art. Led by a Modern docent the third Friday of each month, Slow Art at the Modern begins at 5:30 pm.

Third Fridays, 5:30 pm

Performances

Like the rarity of throwing a pair of sixes in a game of dice, this concert provides a rare opportunity to hear two major string sextets: “Souvenir de Florence” by Tchaikovsky and “String Sextet Concert in B-flat Major” by Brahms. The artists comprising the sextet include violinists Alexander Kerr and Felix Olschofka, violists Michael Klotz and Misha Galaganov, and cellists Edward Arron and Dmitry Kouzov.
