The Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Education and Research Building, Mezzanine

Held in conjunction with the exhibition Soundings: A Contemporary Score, MoMA Studio: Sound in Space is an interactive space open to all ages that explores sound as a material and as a spatial, sensory, immersive experience. Visitors are not just viewers but also listeners, who activate their experience through awareness of the interplay between environment and sound. The Studio offers drop-in activities and workshops, talks with collaborating artists, and a range of interactive artists' projects that explore how the innovations of technology and the re-envisioning of our own physical ability to make sound change the way we communicate and find creative expression. Participating artists include Christine Sun Kim, Joe McKay, Angel Nevarez and Valerie Tevere, Carmen Papalia, and Scott Snibbe.

Designing Modern Women, 1890s-1990s
October 5, 2013-October 1, 2014
Architecture and Design Galleries, third floor

Modern design of the 20th century was profoundly shaped and enhanced by the creativity of women-as muses of modernity and shapers of new ways of living, and as designers, patrons, performers, and educators. This installation, drawn entirely from MoMA's collection, celebrates the diversity and vitality of individual artists' engagement in the modern world, from LoÏe Fuller's pulsating turn-of-the-century performances to Paula Scher's deconstructivist graphics of the 1990s. Highlights include the first display of a newly conserved kitchen by Charlotte Perriand and Le Corbusier (1952) from the Unité d'Habitation housing project; furniture and designs by Lilly Reich, Eileen Gray, Eva Zeisel, Ray Eames, Lella Vignelli, and Denise Scott Brown; textiles by Anni Albers and Eszter Haraszty; ceramics by Lucy Rie; a display of 1960s psychedelic concert posters by graphic designer Bonnie Maclean; and a never-before-seen selection of posters and graphic material from the punk era, featuring women designers, photographers, or performers.

The Paul J. Sachs Prints and Illustrated Books Galleries, second floor

This exhibition introduces the Museum's recently acquired score for4'33" and examines it, and Cage's influence, as a critical pivot around which a diverse array of artists working throughout the 20th century can be united. Taking its title from a letter written by Cage in 1954, There Will Never Be Silence features prints, drawings, photographs, paintings, sculptures, and films by such artists as Marcel Duchamp, Kurt Schwitters, Robert Rauschenberg, Robert Morris, Lawrence Weiner, Yoko Ono, Andy Warhol, and other artists associated with Fluxus, Minimalism, and Conceptual art who pushed preconceived boundaries of space, time, and physicality to new ends.

Listening In: The Social Space of Sound
Wednesday, October 16, 6:00 p.m.
The Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 2

This discussion addresses the materiality of sound: the ways in which sound can shape our physical, collective, and social experiences; our framework for understanding our environments; and how the medium of sound is particularly positioned to challenge familiar ways of thinking. Participants include Philip Brophy, writer, composer, and film director; Christoph Cox, Professor of Philosophy, Hampshire College, and a faculty member at Bard College; Branden Joseph, Frank Gallipoli Professor of Modern and Contemporary Art, Columbia University; and Johanna Fateman, musician, writer, record producer, and member of the band Le Tigre. Moderated by Barbara London, Associate Curator, Department of Media and Performance Art, and organizer of the exhibition Soundings: A Contemporary Score.

Musée de la danse: Three Collective Gestures
October 18-November 3
The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium, second floor, and locations throughout the Museum

Musée de la danse is a three-week dance program in the Museum's Marron Atrium, conceived by French choreographer Boris Charmatz (b. 1973) in collaboration with his groundbreaking Musée de la danse. In 2009, Charmatz became director of the Centre chorégraphique national de Rennes et de Bretagne in northwestern France, which he promptly renamed Musée de la danse. Charmatz's idea was to articulate a notion of dance divested of notions of choreography and "the center." Over the course of three consecutive weekends, American and European dancers and performers will engage in three different projects, each reflecting on how dance can be thought through the museum and vice versa.
