MoMA presents the world premiere of a series of experimental films the artist Maria Lassnig made in New York City in the 1970s. Maria Lassnig: Films in Progress is a selection of newly discovered and restored films that examine ways of looking and seeing bound up in bodily sensation. If Lassnig’s paintings endeavored to convey what she called “body awareness”—a sense of how the world felt from within her own skin—her films amplify and extend this sensation to the viewer through the use of animation, sound, and poetic voiceovers that encourage entry into the artist’s internal world. As the artist reflected in her journals, “My intention was to paint sensuality—but this time, with the camera.”Buy tickets/get more info now
