Modern Mondays: An Evening with Beth B and Special Guests
Monday, March 3, 7:00 p.m.
Live performances by avant-garde artists Julie Atlas Muz, Mat Fraser, and Dirty Martini set the stage for MoMA's presentation of Pioneering "No Wave" director Beth B's latest documentary, Exposed (2013), which celebrates the provocative blend of gender politics and sexual showmanship that characterizes New York City's alternative burlesque movement. Determined to shatter the comfortable voyeurism of traditional nude display, Bunny Love, Rose Wood, World Famous *BOB*, Tigger!, James Habacker, and Bambi the Mermaid join Atlas Muz, Fraser, and Martini on screen in an uncensored mash-up of colorful, satiric performance footage and behind-the-scenes interviews. Beth B's enduring interest in the ways individuals face social constraint finds new expression in the spectacle of performers committed to the liberation of body and mind, struggling for "human rights for women, the disabled, transgender, queer, the disaffected, [and] the outcast." The screening is followed by a Q&A with the director, coproducer Sandra Schulberg, composer Jim Coleman, and the full cast.

Vienna Unveiled: A City in Cinema
February 27-April 20
In honor of the 50th anniversary of the Austrian Film Museum, Vienna, The Museum of Modern Art presents a major collaborative exhibition exploring Vienna as a city both real and mythic throughout the history of cinema. With additional contributions from the Filmarchiv Austria, the exhibition focuses on Austrian and German Jewish émigrés-including Max Ophuls, Erich von Stroheim, and Billy Wilder-as they look back on the city they left behind, as well as an international array of contemporary filmmakers and artists, such as Jem Cohen, VALIE EXPORT, Michael Haneke, Kurt Kren, Stanley Kubrick, Richard Linklater, Nicholas Roeg, and Ulrich Seidl, whose visions of Vienna reveal the powerful hold the city continues to exert over our collective unconscious.
