Martha Rosler is an American artist, born in Brooklyn, New York, who has got international reconnaissance by her original ideas and projects. She works in photo-text, installation, video and performance, as well as writing about art and culture.
Now, PopRally is announcing Martha Rosler first solo exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art this November, and PopRally would like you donate items, from beloved knickknacks to no-longer-used odds and ends, this Thursday, September 6, from 8:30 to11:30 PM.
Go to META-MONUMENTAL PRE-GAME and help to prepare Meta-Monumental Garage Sale by Martha Rosler. Then you will be incorporated into the exhibition! Afterwards, enjoy an evening of drinks, garage-inspired games, and a performance by The Postelles with music by DJ Diggy Lloyd.
In honor of Fashion’s Night Out, you’ll also have access to a special screening of Rosler’s work Martha Rosler Reads Vogue (1983), and if you contribute to the exhibition you will receive a 20% discount* at the MoMA Store throughout the evening!
Meta-Monumental Garage Sale will be a large-scale version of the classic American garage sale where Museum visitors can browse and buy second-hand goods that have been organized and displayed by the artist. The installation will fill MoMA’s Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium with strange and everyday objects donated by the artist, MoMA staff, and the general public, creating a lively space for exchange between Rosler and her customers as they haggle over prices. A fantastic original performance which suits perfectly well with Yareah magazine current issue: Money, money, money!
Other Martha Rosler’s works: Semiotics of the Kitchen
“I was concerned with something like the notion of Ôlanguage speaking the subject,’ and with the transformation of the woman herself into a sign in a system of signs that represent a system of food production, a system of harnessed subjectivity.”
