The MoMA Presents: Modern Mondays: An Evening With Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme
June 13, 2022 @ 7:00 PM - 8:00 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 Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme at The Museum of Modern Art on June 13th at 7:00 p.m. featuring a selection of recent single-channel audiovisual work. This special evening is presented on the occasion of the artist’s commission for the Kravis Studio, May amnesia never kiss us on the mouth, which was co-commissioned by MoMA and the Dia Art Foundation.
Based between New York and Ramallah, they consider voices, images, and political movements on the fringe—from writer and political revolutionary Victor Serge to Palestinian outlaw Abu-Jildeh—using their research to unearth underrepresented histories. With a signature editing style, attention to sound, and keen poetic sense, they combine found and self-authored footage to articulate a digitally mediated experience of crisis in the wake of colonialism.
Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme are known for research-driven work in video, performance, installation, and writing.
Tickets must be reserved in advance.
