“If you see the cynical aspect in my work, great. If you see my work as funny stories, I’m fine with that too.”

Thanks for everyone who came to see #7on7nyc (or followed along online!)
Here's a clip from @cwynars and @cierrasherwin's collaboration—a #makeup tutorial video. The pair presented it alongside examples from the past and present of beauty advertising, as a way to probe beauty standards throughout modern history—from Kodak’s early color balancing to today’s YouTube beauty influencers.

It's #InternationalMuseumDay! Hope you had a chance to celebrate at your favorite cultural institution ❤️ RG @demydos

In this painting, #2018Triennial artist Chemu Ng’ok depicts African braiding, an intimate, intergenerational routine in which mothers, aunts, and older siblings take on the role of hairdresser. The scene Ng’ok paints is typical of a Kenyan household or a salon. Under the nimble fingers of one’s elders, cultural norms and disciplinary measures are transmitted.
Just over a week left to see the 2018 Triennial (and Ng'ok's paintings) one last time!

In "This Lemon Tastes of Apple," (2011) #HiwaK and guitarist Daroon Othman improvise a musical performance in a street demonstration against government corruption demonstration in Kurdish Sulaymaniya in 2011.
Because their performance was not planned, Hiwa K did not film it, but was able to gather footage from a cameraman who, several years later, was captured by ISIS militants.
See this video and more of Hiwa K's work in "Blind as the Mother Tongue," on view through July 19.

For this work, artist #SongTa tricked a contingent of Chinese marine soldiers into riding a particularly terrifying roller coaster. In the resulting photographs and video, the soldiers fight to remain stone-faced, but a few inevitably begin to smile. In this way, Ta reveals the humanity behind those in positions of power.
This work is on view in our #2018Triennial—be sure to see it one last time before it closes on May 27.

“People treat Blackness like a sculpture garden. They borrow the landscape. An example is when pop musicians borrow Black culture and music. I’m interested in the in-between of Blackness. Dark spots no one wants to venture into.” — Artist Matthew Angelo Harrison
Harrison's work is on view in our #2018Triennial, #SongsForSabotage. Be sure to stop by before it closes on May 27!

Sad to see our Anna Craycroft exhibition go, but we're already excited for our next 5th floor exhibition: "The Black School x Kameelah Janan Rasheed." The Black School is an experimental art school that uses black history to educate black and POC students and allies on how to become radical agents of social and political change. Kameelah Janan Rasheed is a visual artist, writer, and teacher. In parallel projects, they will explore the pasts and futures of critical black pedagogies. The exhibition opens on May 23.

Today is #PawełAlthamer's birthday!
"Draftsmen’s Congress" was a visitor favorite from our 2014 Althamer exhibition. Over the course of the exhibition, the blank white space of our Fourth Floor gallery was transformed through the gradual accumulation of drawings and paintings by Museum visitors and a wide array of invited community organizations.
