Enjoy a warm-weather MoMA Monday Nights on June 8. PopRally presents an evening of site-specific performances by the unpredictable Brooklyn music collective Stars Like Fleas.
On June 8, MoMA stays open until 8:45 p.m. Drop in after hours for exhibitions, films, music, and a cash bar—plus the first 600 ticket buyers after 5:30 p.m. get a free return pass for their next visit. Music begins at 6:00 p.m. in The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden, with sets throughout the evening both outdoors and inside the Museum. (In the event of rain, all performances take place indoors.)
Bike to the event to receive free bicycle valet parking and half-price admission. Bicycle valet parking (in the lot west of MoMA; enter on 53 Street) courtesy of Transportation Alternatives, New York City's advocate for biking, walking, and public transit.
Exhibitions on view include the provocative installations of Dutch artist Aernout Mik and the final week of Tangled Alphabets: León Ferrari and Mira Schendel. In the theaters at 8:00 p.m., see a screening from the film exhibition The New India, with actor Abhay Deol introducing the upbeat caper Oye Lucky! Lucky Oye!
Begun as a recording project in the late 1990s, Brooklyn-based art/pop ensemble Stars Like Fleas has blossomed into a live group that reconfigures their lineup, sound, and music for almost every room they play.
PopRally is a program of events at The Museum of Modern Art and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center that features collaborations with artists and musical acts, performances, film screenings, receptions, and special viewings of exhibitions at moderate prices.
