Modern Mondays: "Where is the cutting edge of the motion picture? Discover it first at MoMA.

Engage with contemporary filmmakers and moving image artists, and rediscover landmark works that changed the way we experience film and media."

An Evening with Gulnara Kasmalieva and Muratbek Djumaliev

Monday, May 18, 2009, 7:00 p.m.

Based in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, and trained in both film and visual art, Gulnara Kasmalieva and Muratbek Djumaliev produce video installations that encapsulate everyday life in Central Asia, and their work has been exhibited at The Art Institute of Chicago (2007), the Venice and Singapore biennials, and Winkleman Gallery, New York. Shot along the ancient Silk Road connecting China and Kyrgyzstan with Western markets, the artists' videos portray the resourcefulness that defines this mountainous, poverty-stricken region. In conjunction with Asia Art Week, this program includes their Algorithm of Survival and Hope (2005), along with other recent work.
The theater entrance is at 11 West 53rd Street.
