MoMA Presents: “Modern Mondays: An Evening with Moyra Davey”

October 10, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM

$14 – $25

As part of its ongoing Modern Mondays series exploring moving-image experimentation and innovation, The Museum of Modern Art will present An evening with Moyra Davey at The Museum of Modern Art on October 10th at 7:00 p.m. The screening of Davey’s fiery tenth film, i confess, which closes MoMA’s retrospective in its New York premiere, is followed by a conversation between Davey and political philosopher Dalie Giroux, moderated by artist Iman Issa, who has been in dialogue with, and appeared in, Davey’s work in recent years.

The film follows a passionate consideration of James Baldwin—sparked by the artist’s perennial impulse to transform the serendipities of voracious reading into sustained critical thinking—is a starting point from which Davey weaves personal and historical narratives. From there, the film explores language, religion, and class in mid-century Quebec through the artist’s upbringing and the enigmatic Pierre Vallières, a revolutionary figure whose Marxist-inflected notion of a common cause between Quebec separatists and Black liberation reads as vexing in retrospect.

Tickets must be reserved in advance.
