Talks and Performances

A lively series of lectures are held throughout the year in the Museum’s lecture hall and exhibition galleries. Talks by artists, curators, and other experts from a variety of scholarly fields shed light on contemporary art and its related context in conjunction with MMoCA’s exhibitions. Poetry, dance, and other performances occur periodically, in concert with exhibitions and installations. Check the Events listing for details.

Gallery talks at MMoCA are generously funded by Bell Laboratories.

Film and Video

MMoCA organizes two film series each year that offer audiences unique opportunities to experience this important aspect of visual culture.

Rooftop Cinema presents experimental and independent film and video each Friday evening in in the Museum’s Rooftop Sculpture Garden. MMoCA Cinema showcases the Madison premieres of critically-acclaimed and award-winning narrative features and documentaries from around the world. This eight-week series is held in the Museum’s Lecture Hall throughout the fall.

MMoCA’s film series are generously funded by maiahaus and Venture Investors, LLC, and an anonymous donor.
