Isa Genzken: Retrospective

Nov 18, 2013–Mar 9, 2014

MoMA

Two Women at Combat. 1974. Directed by Isa Genzken

This screening series accompanies the Museum’s presentation of Isa Genzken’s (German, b. 1948) first comprehensive U.S. retrospective. Genzken’s films, including a recent feature-length venture, offer a cinematic companion to the artist’s diverse and experimental sculptural oeuvre. Like her sculptures, Genzken’s films are, by turns, formally disciplined and comedic, providing a fractured but surprisingly personal perspective on her life as an artist.

Organized by Sabine Breitwieser, Chief Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art (until January 31, 2013), and Laura Hoptman, Curator, Department of Painting and Sculpture, The Museum of Modern Art; Michael Darling, the James W. Alsdorf Chief Curator, Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; and Jeffrey Grove, the Hoffman Family Senior Curator of Contemporary Art, Dallas Museum of Art; with Stephanie Weber, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art, The Museum of Modern Art.
