Garfield and rainbows at MoMA, oh my!
Thu Jul 19 2007
Cory Arcangel revels in obsolete technology. Is it nostalgia? Just short of 30, he hardly seems old enough to yearn for the good ol' days. The artist, who first made waves at Deitch Projects in 2005 with Super Mario Movie (a video played live off of an altered Nintendo Entertainment system), is now showing at MoMA. In celebration of his quick rise to exaltation, the king of the '90s will be joined by his court (well, friends), the impish Paper Rad kids, to host PopRally, MoMA's late-night art/music/performance extravaganza on July 24 from 8 to 11pm.
MoMA calls it an opportunity to "reflect on the ways in which the 'new-media era' of the recent past has changed the way we comprehend art, music and culture." A more apt description might be simply "a raucous good time."
Tickets are available at MoMA and online at TicketWeb.
