The nominee for Best Picture is…”Do the Right Thing” (1989) 👏 👏 👏
…
“Although it was snubbed for Best Picture at the Academy Awards in 1990, Spike Lee’s ‘Do the Right Thing’ stands the test of time as one of the best films ever made. Shot on a one-block stretch of Bedford-Stuyvesant, Brooklyn, ‘Do the Right Thing’ offers timeless depictions of both interracial tension and unity without ever nearing tasteless caricature or mind-numbing cliché. The cinematography, dripping with the oversaturated red of summer heat, makes the viewer feel they’re sitting right there on the stoop, fanning themselves and watching the scenes unfold—just as Mother Sister does from her brownstone window.” –Leah Asha Allen, Program Coordinator, The Friends of Education

#JoanMiró opens to the public this Sunday, February 24! Experience his radiant paintings, which were in the artist’s words, “conceived like a bolt from the blue.” Miró’s monumental painting “The Birth of the World” (1925) serves as gateway to roughly 60 paintings, works on paper, prints, illustrated books, collages, objects, and ceramics exploring his vocabulary of signs, symbols, and dreamlike imagery.

…
Opening the festival is Chinonye Chukwu’s “Clemency,” featuring a masterful performance from Alfre Woodard as a prison warden grappling with her role in the justice system; Centerpiece is Alejandro Landes’s “Monos,” a contemporary reimagining of Lord of the Flies; and closing ND/NF is Pippa Bianco’s “Share,” a powerful portrait of a sexual assault victim.
The nominee for Best in Lost-and-Found Cinema is…”Dawson City: Frozen Time” (2016) 👏 👏 👏
…
“‘Dawson City’ is a bizarre family legend full of mystery, adventure, holes, fire, gossip, rises and falls, swimming pools, hockey rinks, natives, explorers, the Yukon, and gold. It features rare clips of (once lost but now found) early silent film, but it is so much more in the telling. I’ll never forget the recollection of childhood memories sparked by fragments of film interspersed throughout the whole, such as ice hockey practice or candles on a big sheet cake.” –Stacey Carter, Assistant Director of Merchandise Planning

“African American Flag” (1990) is a new addition to #TheLongRunMoMA’s David Hammons gallery showcasing his consistent experimentation with a wide range of materials. Evoking the U.S. flag and the Pan-African flag adopted by Marcus Garvey’s Universal Negro Improvement Association and African Communities League (UNIA-ACL), the work reflects the artist’s career-long exploration of American identity in all of its complexity—its history, its representations, and its possibilities.
...
“The Long Run” showcases daring invention sustained by artists long into their careers, now featuring new works and galleries for 2019. Learn more at mo.ma/thelongrun.

The Chemex, featured in James Bond’s breakfast scene in “From Russia With Love,” is the most successful of more than three hundred designs patented by German chemist turned designer Peter Schlumbohm. Schlumbohm adapted scientific principles to the development of domestic objects after immigrating to the US in 1935. His nonmechanical coffee maker was inspired by laboratory glassware. Learn about its chemically correct method of brewing in the Good Design Lab, and explore more iconic designs in #ValueofGoodDesign: mo.ma/gooddesign

“My nominee in the category of Best Scene-Stealing Housekeeper is Guadalupe Acedo, the unlikely star of Ila Bêka and Louise Lemoine’s 'Koolhaas Houselife,' who has little patience for silly highfalutin architecture.” –Paul Galloway, collection specialist in our Department of Architecture and Design

“...strong artists continue on to develop multi-decade careers long after their emergence on the scene. An initial personal style is a springboard, which the artist may then choose to deepen, vary, or subvert. Careers assume all different shapes and rhythms. But our preference for beginnings leaves these largely unexplored in our collection galleries.” –Ann Temkin (@ann.temkin), Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture
...
#TheLongRunMoMA, our celebration of daring invention sustained by artists long into their careers, has been remixed with new works and galleries devoted to #LeeFriedlander, #IsaGenzken, #GerhardRichter, and more.

The nominee for Best Editor is...John Carter, “Taking Off” (1971)! 👏 👏 👏
...
“‘Taking Off’ is one of the most intricately honed, exhilaratingly edited works in all of cinema. Not only does the editing hold the film’s plot together seamlessly—with an astonishing array of characters, an easy-to-follow story arc, and a unique intimacy—it also blends in footage from an earlier film Forman had jettisoned, featuring auditions by female musical performers (including, among others, a riveting number by Carly Simon and a beautiful ballad by a young Kathy Bates). The editing really shines in these sequences.” –Michael Meade, guest specialist on our Visitor Engagement team
