The Museum of Modern Art Presents Alexandre Estrela: Flat Bells
The Museum of Modern Art will be opening the new exhibition Alexandre Estrela: Flat Bells at The Museum of Modern Art from November 4, 2023, through January 7, 2024.
With his first New York exhibition, Flat Bells, Portuguese artist Alexandre Estrela brings shimmering video animations and an immersive soundscape to the Kravis Studio. Informed by his background in painting, Estrela’s moving-image projects often explore the interplay between materials and perception, updating Conceptual art’s exploration of the relationship between idea and object for the digital age.
Drawing on elements of geometric abstraction, graphic design, and experimental music, Flat Bells orchestrates sonic tempo and visual rhythm across multiple screens to examine how visual culture is experienced and marked by technological obsolescence. This study of spectatorship embraces the performative context of the Studio to stage another type of duet: that between man and machine. From neural networks to computer mainframes, synesthesia to earworms, Estrela calls attention to the systems that govern the life of the mind.
