Jumana Manna’s first major museum exhibition in the US charts the artist’s multidisciplinary practice, which explores the paradoxical effects of preservation practices in agriculture, science, and the law. Marking the New York premiere of Manna’s newest film, Foragers (2022), the exhibition brings together nearly 20 works including two recent films and a series of new and existing sculptures.
Lower Eastside Girls Club in Homeroom is the culmination of over two years of collaboration between jackie sumell, the Lower Eastside Girls Club, and MoMA PS1. This presentation is part of Growing Abolition, a multipart project investigating connections between ecology and prison abolition.
Through cinema and installation, Onyeka Igwe’s (b. 1986, London) multidisciplinary practice examines little-known historic events by collecting and combining documentary sources including government records, official reports, material artifacts, and personal memory, as well as gesture, voice, dance, and song.

This program is organized in conjunction with the solo exhibition A Repertoire of Protest (No Dance, No Palaver). London-based artist and filmmaker Onyeka Igwe joins us at MoMA for a Modern Mondays evening featuring a selection of single-channel and expanded film works. Her research-based practice occupies a diasporic perspective that offers a critique of British imperialism and its aftermath, neoliberal capitalism.
