MOOD features the work of 2018–19 artists in residence Allison Janae Hamilton, Tschabalala Self, and Sable Elyse Smith. For the first time in the Museum’s history, the annual Artist-in-Residence exhibition will take place beyond the Museum’s walls, at MoMA PS1. The artists of MOOD will explore site and time as maps to American identity and popular culture. As part of this presentation, each artist will create an immersive environment: a passageway to a new world that interrogates both the artist’s and the visitor’s relationship to past and present in this urgent moment in American history. In each space, visitors will inhabit the artist’s psychic topography, participating in a mood that is part of the global moment, while traveling through and beyond the fabric of digital culture.

MOOD will be on view in MoMA PS1's second-floor Projects Galleries located at 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, NY

MOOD is organized by Legacy Russell, Associate Curator, Exhibitions, and Hallie Ringle, former Assistant Curator at the Studio Museum (now Hugh Kaul Curator of Contemporary Art at the Birmingham Museum of Art) with Josephine Graf, Curatorial Assistant, MoMA PS1.
