Please join us for MoMA’s bimonthly program welcoming individuals who are Deaf or hard of hearing to participate in an ASL-interpreted private gallery talk focusing on one of MoMA’s exhibitions, along with a wine and snack reception.

In February, we will explore the exhibition Picasso in Fontainebleau with curator Anne Umland. The exhibition presents four monumental canvases, along with other paintings, drawings, pastels, and etchings made during the artist’s brief three-month stay in a rented villa in Fontainebleau, France. Rarely seen photographs of the studio and the Picasso family will further contextualize the artist’s day-to-day life and artistic practice. Together, we will examine new discoveries about the process and experimental spirit that mark Pablo Picasso’s work in Fontainebleau.
