Also on the program—the revival of last season’s hit Batuke, a hard-driving piece exploding with the rhythms created by smooth samba steps, capoeira lethal kicks, and the stick dance Maculelé.

Carlito Carvalhosa: Sum of Days
Venue: Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
11 West 53rd Street,
New York, NY 10019
Brazilian artist Carlito Carvalhosa (b. 1961) conceived Sum of Days as an environmental and participatory sound installation—a monumental, voluminous construction made of soft, white, translucent material that hangs from ceiling to floor and takes the shape of an elliptical labyrinth. This structure hides, or interrupts, the defined limits of its surrounding architectural space, suspending visitors’ spatial references and allowing an experience of total immersion. A system of microphones hangs from various heights and records the day’s ambient noise, which is played back the following day through several speakers. Each day a new recording is superimposed over the previous one, gradually dimming the oldest sounds into a layer of whispers. Adding yet another element of sound will be periodic musical performances from within the installation, chosen and performed by American composer Philip Glass and some members of his musical ensemble. The accumulation of these recordings will constitute an immaterial layering of time—an auditory memory of the accidental noise inherent in everyday experience. This marks the artist’s first exhibition in the United States.
Diego Rivera: Murals for The Museum of Modern Art
Venue: Museum of Modern Art (MoMA)
11 West 53rd Street,
New York, NY 10019
Diego Rivera was the subject of MoMA’s second monographic exhibition (the first was Henri Matisse), which set new attendance records in its five-week run from December 22, 1931, to January 27, 1932. MoMA brought Rivera to New York six weeks before the exhibition’s opening and gave him studio space within the Museum, a strategy intended to solve the problem of how to present the work of this famous muralist when murals were by definition made and fixed on site. Working around the clock with two assistants, Rivera produced five “portable murals”—large blocks of frescoed plaster, slaked lime, and wood that feature bold images drawn from Mexican subject matter and address themes of revolution and class inequity. After the opening, to great publicity, Rivera added three more murals, now taking on New York subjects through monumental images of the urban working class and the social stratification of the city during the Great Depression. All eight were on display for the rest of the show’s run. The first of these panels, Agrarian Leader Zapata, is an icon in the Museum’s collection.
This exhibition will bring together key works made for Rivera’s 1931 exhibition, presenting them at MoMA for the first time in nearly 80 years. Along with mural panels, the show will include full-scale drawings, smaller working drawings, archival materials related to the commission and production of these works, and designs for Rivera’s famous Rockefeller Center mural, which he also produced while he was working at the Museum. Focused specifically on works created during the artist’s stay in New York, this exhibition will draw a succinct portrait of Rivera as a highly cosmopolitan figure who moved between Russia, Mexico, and the United States, and will offer a fresh look at the intersection of art making and radical politics in the 1930s. MoMA will be the exhibition’s sole venue.
