MoMA Presents: Films of Moyra Davey
The Museum of Modern Art will present a film series that surveys the work of filmmaker Moyra Davey at The Museum of Modern Art screening September 23rd through October 10th. Over the past 15 years, Davey has made films weaving together personal and literary histories, but her body of work is often more disarming than diaristic.
Guided by a wondrous formal attention to overlooked details and generative happenstance, Davey’s distinctive style of montage and narration is inscribed in a larger interplay between photography, filmmaking, and writing that has guided her practice going back to the 1990s.
This mid-career survey offers a special opportunity to experience 11 of Davey’s feature, mid-length, and short films together for the first time. In a collective context, the vitality of their reflections on contemporary life—as an artist, woman, and mother—resonate deeply. Featuring the New York premieres two of Davey’s latest films, the series also includes work by cinematic auteurs chosen by Davey in a nod to the citational strategies present throughout her practice.
Venue: Museum of Modern Art
11 West 53rd Street, between 5th and 6th Avenues
