The Museum of Modern Art announces Projects: Tadáskía, on view in the Museum’s street-level galleries from May 24 through October 14, 2024, as well as the acquisition of the exhibition’s centrepiece, an expansive work on paper titled ave preta mística mystical black bird (2022), into MoMA’s collection. Tadáskía is a multidisciplinary artist based in Brazil who uses drawing, sculpture, and mixed media to articulate themes of transformation and joy influenced by her experiences as a Black trans woman. The exhibition, presented in collaboration with the Studio Museum in Harlem, will be the artist’s first solo presentation in the United States, and features MoMA’s recently acquired work alongside a monumental wall drawing and sculptures made in response to the site at MoMA.

May 5 - June 20, 2024

Jennifer Elster, native New Yorker and multi-medium artist, presents her latest exhibition, QUITE A BITE, in the 19th-century structure that houses The Development Gallery in Tribeca, where everything is part of the show. Elster infuses her piercing perspectives into her text-heavy paintings and sculptures, her deep sentimentality in her historical assemblages, and her fears and warnings in photographic series. QUITE A BITE includes works that have never been seen before and others that span over three decades of raw, intense, and highly instinctual artistic creation. Discover more

December 8, 2023 - December 8, 2024

IThis porcelain head, a self-portrait, is glazed in shades of blue and covered with metallic droplets called “silver mist,” or gintekisai. The term, like the secret technique that produces the effect, was invented by ceramicist Kondō Takahiro (born 1958). Based in Kyoto, Japan, he carries on a legacy of innovation in ceramic art. For the last one hundred years, Kondō Takahiro and his father Kondō Hiroshi (1936–2012), grandfather Kondō Yūzō (1902–1985), and uncle Kondō Yutaka (1932–1983) have broken free of centuries-old traditions to pursue original, individual expression. 




December 2023 - November, 2024

For the High Line, Davis creates a larger-than-life bronze portrait of a ballerina taking her final bow after a performance. Using a combination of 3D scanning technology and traditional sculpting techniques, the bronze figure was derived from Davis’ life-size plaster cast sculpture of ballerina Jasmine Perry. The work is an homage to Davis’ parents and sister, all of whom were professional dancers. Curtain Call draws on the artist’s experience growing up on stage and behind the scenes of the dance and theater world, seeing firsthand the incredible mental and physical toll taken to create a flawless performance. The work is part of a new series, Beauty Must Suffer, which examines the life and labor of Black dancers in the historically European tradition of ballet. Davis’ sculptures trace the ballerina’s pursuit of perfect form, from their first encounter with the barre to their final bow—theatrically presenting their bodies as a vessel for performative storytelling. As Curtain Call’s ballerina kneels forward, she reveals a bouquet of roses, a traditional gift of appreciation given by admiring fans after a ballet. Staged on the Lawn at 23rd Street, Curtain Call is forever frozen in reverence to her audience, transforming the architecture of the High Line itself into a stage. Discover more
