#TBT to spending warm summer days under the 2017 Young Architects Program installation, "Lumen" by Jenny Sabin Studio (@sabinjenny). Right now, the courtyard is under construction in preparation for this year's project "Hide & Seek," by Dream The Combine (@DreamTheCombine). An architectural web of interactive mirrors, "Hide & Seek" is inspired by the crowd, the street, and the jostle of relationships found in the contemporary city. Opening June 28. #YAP2018
Special thanks to @bloombergdotorg, lead supporter of the young architects program since 2007. #BloombergPhilanthropies

Look closely at these 20-foot-tall photographs by #SethPrice and you may recognize the familiar form of a fleshy elbow, forearm, or leg in extreme detail. Printed on fabric and stretched over commercial light boxes, these digital skins approximate human warmth with a screen-like glow. "Seth Price: Danny, Mila, Hannah, Ariana, Bob, Brad" opens June 3. Learn more at mo.ma/SethPrice.
#GauriGill’s photo series Acts of Appearance, a collaboration with members of a rural community in Maharashtra, India, tells a story that doesn’t represent the life of any particular person or village, but rather the story of an encounter between artists, working and playing together. “They are artists of the papier-mache, I'm an artist of photography, using different forms to tell a story about contemporary life.” Learn more at mo.ma/GauriGill.
On #InternationalMuseumDay, check out our current exhibitions featuring artists from around the world. Admission is always free for NYC residents.
🤖 Fernando Palma Rodríguez combines his training as an artist and mechanical engineer to create robotic sculptures in response to indigenous rights issues in Mexico. This coyote sculpture—made from found objects and organic materials—ambles around the gallery before being reeled in by a mechanical device. A central figure in many indigenous cultures, the coyote is a notorious trickster and resurfaces throughout the artist's work. Learn more at mo.ma/Fernando

"I try to make sculptures in the form of performance. Not only is the body the best extension of sculptural tools, it is also the first arena where things happen." – @LiBinyuan.
Now on view, “Land" features the performance work of two pioneering Chinese artists, #ZhangHuan and #LiBinyuan, whose orchestrated encounters between the body and the landscape are both poetic and political. Image: Li Binyuan, "State of Beijing,” 2016. More at mo.ma/Land.
🥊 On #MothersDay, we’re celebrating all the kick-ass caretakers, mothers, and guardians out there.
#DelilahMontoya’s photographic portraits of women boxers capture the figure of the Malcriada, a woman who defies cultural expectations by adopting non-traditional, socially unsanctioned roles. In 2006, when women were still making some of the first forays into professional boxing, Montoya shot this striking series of portraits, on view in “Body Armor” beginning June 3.

PSA: Sunday is Mother's Day. Don't forget to call your mom.
Photographer #GauriGill collaborated with members of an Adivasi community indigenous to India for her series Acts of Appearance. In Adivasi life, inanimate objects are adored and believed to have a kind of sentience. Objects like your phone or purse are meaningful simply because they are so present in daily life. The community's papier-mâché masks bring to life the broad cast of characters from their world from a mobile phone to a goat. Learn more at mo.ma/GauriGill.
“We award the sky its color. Because we do, that means that I can then change it. I can work something around you that will change your perception of the sky.” – #JamesTurrell.
