DESCRIPTION

In conjunction with the exhibitions Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925 and Abstract Generation: Now in Print, the PopRally committee has been collecting hundreds of submissions of one-minute abstract videos created by the public. These video minutes open a broad window into the ways that abstraction endlessly inspires artists, designers, and anyone observing the peripheries of their own daily life. The captured imagery, ranging from the bizarre to the contemplative, is made from small observations in nature, flowing psychedelic mutations, and digitally imagined spaces.

Join us for a special party and see all of the submitted videos displayed on various screens and projections in MoMA's lobby and on the Marron Atrium walls. Dream-pop queen Tamaryn will DJ the event, providing a hypnotic soundtrack to the collectively built abstract videoscape.

Tickets ($18 in advance, $20 at the door) are available online.

You must be 21 or older to attend this event.
