Images of an Infinite Film at Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
This event has already taken place. Click here for the latest events.
Images of an Infinite Film brings together works that, through structural or material intervention, emulate processes of human memory or thought, function as scores for imagined films, or take form entirely in the mind of the viewer -- suggesting a link between the precarious nature of memory, the fragility of film, and the subjective experience of assigning meaning to things in the world. The exhibition takes as its point of departure avant-garde filmmaker Hollis Frampton's notion of an "infinite film," which theorizes an overarching history of all recorded images and likens the universe to an endless film archive.
Venue Description: MoMA's rich and varied collection constitutes one of the most comprehensive and panoramic views into modern art in the world, and has grown to include over 135,000 paintings, prints, photographs, drawings, sculptures, films, and design objects. Visitors to New York City should make sure to stop in and view the collection during their vacations. Founded in 1929 as an educational institution, The Museum of Modern Art is dedicated to being the foremost museum of modern art in the world. Central to The Museum of Modern Art's mission is the encouragement of an ever-deeper understanding and enjoyment of modern and contemporary art by the diverse local, national, and international audiences that it serves. The Museum of Modern Art seeks to create a dialogue between the established and the experimental, the past and the present, in an environment that is responsive to the issues of modern and contemporary art, while being accessible to a public that ranges from scholars to young children. MoMA also has three restaurants on the premises: Café 2, is the museum's sophisticated cafeteria; Terrace 5 is a full-service café where guests can indulge in creative savory selections, delectable pastries and ice cream sundaes, inventive specialty cocktails, micro-brewed beers, and carefully selected wines; and The Modern offers the original, Alsatian-inspired cuisine of Chef Gabriel Kreuther, recently awarded three stars by The New York Times.
