The Museum of Modern Art presents Preoccupations: A Jamie Nares Retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art from May 23rd through June 2nd.

Jamie Nares has produced visual art in a variety of mediums—painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, performance, film, and video. Initially a kind of adjunct to her art making, Nares’s moving-image work grew, as Nares put it, “to accommodate multiple genres, from document to documentary, magic realist drama to travelog,” along with the epic no wave costume feature Rome 78.

Presented in collaboration with the artist, this comprehensive retrospective encompasses film and video works created over five decades—including the premieres of the new pieces Building and Love, Paul—providing, in the artist’s words, “a key of sorts to the map of her preoccupations.”
