See Images of an Infinite Film in New York
From 07 September 2013 To 02 March 2014Address
Museum of Modern Art, 11 West 53rd Street, New York, NY 10019
Most people would agree that they hold their memories of past experiences dearly, but how much do we take for granted the power to remember and process details from our history?
Guests at New York hotels will be able to examine this issue thanks to a new exhibition at the city's Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) entitled Images of an Infinite Film.
On display between now and March 2nd 2014, it likens the universe to a gigantic and endless video archive to suggest a link between the precarious nature of memory and the fragility of film.
Among the fascinating pieces on show is a portrait of Henry Molaison, who underwent experimental brain surgery to treat epilepsy in 1953 and was left with a radical form of amnesia. Thanks to clever film looping, visitors will be able to experience what it is like to be him and constantly rewrite information.
It is a show that will be well worth checking out and residents the Premier Hotel New York can reach MoMA on foot, as it is only 12 minutes' walk away via 6th Avenue.
An exhibition about whales is now showing at the American Museum of Natural History.
A fascinating exhibition focusing on the work of Dorothea Rockburne will soon be showing at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
A new exhibition focusing on the work of surrealist artist Rene Magritte will soon be showing at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
