Making Jamaica explores how a new image of Jamaica was created through photography in the late nineteenth century.
More than 70 historical photographs, lantern slides and stereocards reveal the carefully constructed representation of this transitional period in Jamaica’s history. For first time, its people are depicted as an industrious nation post-emancipation, and their surroundings as a desirable tourist destination and tropical commodity.

A Century Of Funk Rufus Thomas At 100
March 23, 2017 – August 31, 2017
OPENING RECEPTION THURSDAY, MARCH 23, 7 PM
LIVE MUSIC BY THE STAX MUSIC ACADEMY
Had it not been for Stax Records founder meeting Memphis music icon Rufus Thomas soon after he started his fledgling Satellite Records in 1957, Stax Records might never have become the soul and R&B powerhouse that it came to be. Having moved into the old movie theater at 926 E. McLemore Avenue to record country and rockabilly music, it was Rufus Thomas and his daughter Carla Thomas who opened Stewart’s eyes to R&B music with their regional Satellite hit, “Cause I Love You.” A Century Of Funk Rufus Thomas At 100 weiterlesen

Ian Cheng: Emissaries
April 9–September 25, 2017

MoMA PS1

MoMA PS1 presents Ian Cheng’s (b. 1984) first US museum solo presentation, featuring the artist’s complete Emissary trilogy (2015–17), a series of three live simulations dedicated to the history of cognitive evolution. Using an engine for developing video games, Emissary is made up of open-ended animations with no fixed outcome or narrative—a format Cheng calls „live simulation.“ These works ask us to imagine technology not as a subordinate reflection of our own minds, but as a tool to model a non-anthropomorphic vision of history and consciousness.
