The Museum of Modern Art Presents Uniqlo NYC Nights and Ja’tovia Gary’s The Giverny Suite
The Museum of Modern Art will be hosting its next Uniqlo NYC Night with the opening of the focused exhibition Ja’tovia Gary’s The Giverny Suite at The Museum of Modern Art on September 1st.
With a new gallery opening on the first Friday of every month—when the Museum stays open to all until 8:00 p.m. and offers free admission to New Yorkers for UNIQLO NYC Nights—these exhibitions will invite audiences to continue to explore MoMA’s dynamic collection and connect with art and ideas from more geographies and perspectives than ever before. Enjoy music by DJs from The Lot Radio, along with beer, cocktails, and more at our pop-up bar. Explore in the galleries, get creative with drop-in drawing sessions, and see a film in the theaters. Our stores and café will be open, too, so you can grab a bite in Cafe 2, get drinks at The Modern, or shop for unique design objects from MoMA Design Store.
This exhibition will invite visitors to experience a multimedia work, newly acquired and on view for the first time, that uniquely cements a Black feminist perspective within the history of modern art and cinema. Including footage filmed on location in Harlem and in Claude Monet’s historic gardens at Giverny, THE GIVERNY SUITE (2019) is a cinematic poem that meditates on the safety and bodily autonomy of Black women. The three-channel, large-scale installation uses an arsenal of cinematic techniques—including direct animation, archival material and “woman-on-the-street interviews”—to explore sexuality, power, and the creativity of Black femme performance figures.
