Reflected Forms: Story and Character in the Films of Todd Haynes
On the occasion of Todd Haynes’s May December, MoMI is pleased to present an exhibit with materials from the archives of filmmaker Todd Haynes, now part of the Museum’s collection, offering a glimpse into his process of transforming historical and cultural referents into formally ambitious, richly emotional films.
October 27, 2023–March 3, 2024
David Levine’s Dissolution is a jewel-box sculpture that conjures the past and future of the moving image. A 20-minute film played on a loop, it draws on the central conceit of iconic 1980s movies and TV shows such as Tron and Max Headroom: human characters who find themselves dematerialized and confined within the interior worlds of electronic devices.
First Look, MoMI’s annual festival for adventurous new cinema, introduces New York audiences to more than two dozen works hailing from nearly as many countries, encompassing feature and short films; fiction and nonfiction; New York premieres and works in progress; experiments with—and exemplary expressions of—form. Learn more about this exciting event.
