Pioneer Works is a cultural center dedicated to experimentation, education and production across disciplines. Through a broad range of educational programs, performances, residencies and exhibitions, Pioneer Works transcends disciplinary boundaries to foster a community where alternative modes of thought are activated and supported. We strive to make culture accessible to all.
Interesting fact: organisation of residencies for visual artists & technologists. To keep in mind.
The Met presents over 5,000 years of art from around the world for everyone to experience and enjoy. The Museum lives in three iconic sites in New York City—The Met Fifth Avenue, The Met Breuer, and The Met Cloisters. Millions of people also take part in The Met experience online.
The museum is huge and conceived like a maze (in my point of view). They recreate interiors (louis XVI, a church, frank lloyd, etc.). Impressive collection of Oceanian art. The bookshop is one of the greatest i've seen, by the quantity & quality of books.
The full ticket (25$) grant you access to the whole museum for 3 days. So don't rush and prepare a sketch book + camera to spend 12/15 hours in this gigantic collection of artworks. Collection covers all continents for ancient arts. There is also a modern section for paintings and scultuptures. Eating is over-priced, with basic sandwiches at >14$.
At The Museum of Modern Art and MoMA PS1, we celebrate creativity, openness, tolerance, and generosity. We aim to be inclusive places—both onsite and online—where diverse cultural, artistic, social, and political positions are welcome. We’re committed to sharing the most thought-provoking modern and contemporary art, and hope you will join us in exploring the art, ideas, and issues of our time.
The MoMA is not targetted towards study and academics. The full tickets costs 25$ and the number of pieces is far fewer than in MET.
Temporary exhibition: Thinking Machines: Art and Design in the Computer Age, 1959–1989
