Abstract Currents: An Interactive Video Event.
In conjunction with the exhibitions Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925 and Abstract Generation: Now in Print, PopRally invited artists to channel their own ideas of the abstract through one-minute videos exploring abstract forms of any kind.
These videos open a broad window into the ways in which 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.
The videos will be played on various screens and projections in MoMA’s lobby and on the Marron Atrium walls during a special party on Sunday, April 7. Dream Pop queen Tamaryn will DJ the event, providing a hypnotic soundtrack to the collectively built abstract videoscape.
