Week of Events
Behind the Screen
The Museum's core exhibition immerses visitors in the creative and technical process of producing, promoting, and presenting films, television shows, and digital entertainment.
The Jim Henson Exhibition
This dynamic experience explores Jim Henson’s groundbreaking work for film and television and his transformative impact on culture.
Refreshing the Loop
Refreshing the Loop continues Museum of the Moving Image’s tradition of displaying GIFs in our passenger elevator. This new iteration places artists who have been widely known for their GIFs for more than two decades in conversation with selected artists who have gained notable popularity in the last few years.
Horrible Sites: Makeup and Production Design for The Exorcist
With material drawn from MoMI’s permanent collection, this exhibit explores the film’s production and makeup design, detailing how a stylish townhouse in Georgetown, Washington, D.C., and an innocent young girl were transformed into sites of horror.
Mr. Yellow Sweatshirt
Shot in the Roosevelt Ave/Jackson Heights station, this installation video captures the tide of New Yorkers streaming through an entrance to the subway system in what the filmmakers refer to as a “collective ballet.”
GLOBAL MODE >
Eva Davidova’s participatory installation playfully incorporates both ancient myth and contemporary reality, highlighting the theme of interdependent responsibility in the wake of ecological disaster.
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.
Reflected Forms: Story and Character in the Films of Todd Haynes
On the occasion of Todd Haynes’s latest feature, May December, and the Museum’s celebration of the director at the Winter Moving Image Awards, MoMI is pleased to present an exhibit with materials from the archives of filmmaker Todd Haynes, now part of the Museum’s collection.
