New York - Exhibition

Maria Lassnig: New York Films 1970–1980

MoMA PS1

01 Feb 201818 Jun 2018

The exhibition features a series of experimental films by the artist and made in New York City in the 1970s. It focuses on a selection of newly discovered and restored films that examine ways of looking and seeing bound up in bodily sensation.

The selection highlights both finished films and film fragments, and documentary footage of the artist’s studio and her surroundings in New York. These newly surfaced films enrich and complicate our understandings of Lassnig’s approach to figuration and self-portraiture, as well as other key themes that she investigated throughout her career, including the social roles assigned to women, the tension between public engagement and private seclusion, and questions of technological advancement, especially of imaging technologies and shifts in the way images circulate.
