- We're very sad to hear of Richard Benson's passing this past week. Benson was a photographer, printer, educator, and served as dean of the Yale School of Art from 1996 to 2006. In October 2008, MoMA published Benson's "The Printed Picture," which traces the changing technology of making and distributing pictures from the Renaissance to the present. He cocurated the exhibition of the same name that year at MoMA. ... See more of Benson's works in our collection at mo.ma/richardbenson ... [Richard Benson. "Texas Panhandle." 2006.

- In this studio workshop, Prime Timers explored a form of monotype printmaking known as collographs. Lead by MoMA teaching artist, Sally Paul, the groups created collage compositions using textured found materials, then applied ink to the surface to make a series of prints. Participants remarked on how engaging with the printmaking process further developed their understanding of works currently on view in the galleries, including Robert Rauschenberg and Ruth Asawa. See works by Prime Timers Patricia, Nancy, and Marilyn above. … Follow along today as #MoMAPrimeTime takes over MoMA’s Instagram to celebrate the last day of Prime Time Summer Camp for 200 New Yorkers, ages 65+. #instagramtakeover

- I’ve always been fascinated by [Rauschenberg], even though I didn’t quite understand him, so that was that reason that I wanted to take this course. [The educators] helped us to understand what was happening, giving us the backstories. I now have the focus in terms of what I’m going to do. I’m going come back and look at it all over again and try to understand it fully.” - Jeanne, Prime Timer … Over two days Prime Timers got an in depth look at the exhibition #RauschenbergAmongFriends. Thursday’s visit included a discussion with Curatorial Assistants Emily Liebert and Jennifer Harris, who helped dispel some of the myths of this protean artist. … Follow along today as #MoMAPrimeTime takes over MoMA’s Instagram to celebrate the last day of Prime Time Summer Camp for 200 New Yorkers, ages 65+. #instagramtakeover … Featured Artworks: Robert Rauschenberg.

- When Apollo 12 landed on the moon in 1969, it may have been carrying an edition of this artwork. ... Forrest Myers, a member of Experiments in Art and Technology (E.A.T.), invited Rauschenberg, (one of the founding members of E.A.T.) and five other artists to make drawings, which were etched by scientists at Bell Laboratories onto tiny wafer-thin iridium-plated ceramic chips. When NASA didn’t respond to Myers’s request, Bell Labs scientist Fred Waldhauer asked an engineer to help get the work to the moon. According to Waldhauer, one copy of the chip was covertly attached to the leg of the lunar lander. ... In addition to Rauschenberg’s straight line, there is a Mickey Mouse–like figure by Claes Oldenburg, stylized initials by Andy Warhol ("He was being the terrible bad boy," said Forrest Myers in an interview), a black square by David Novros, a computer-generated drawing by Myers, and a circuit-like diagram by John Chamberlain.

- The 1985 exhibition "Kurt Schwitters" was an extraordinarily comprehensive presentation of the career of this key modernist figure. A clear labor of love, it ranks among the most important shows organized by John Elderfield, who was MoMA’s Chief Curator of Painting and Sculpture and had written his dissertation on the artist. The exhibition explored the diverse breadth of Schwitters’s achievement, whose totality, wrote Elderfield in his benchmark-setting catalogue, is “extremely difficult to grasp.” It was replete with the evocative collages Schwitters made from found materials and for which he is best known. These were the product of a one-man movement he called Merz, a direct reaction to the chaos and destruction of World War I: “Everything had broken down and new things had to be made out of fragments,” Schwitters wrote, “and this is Merz.” Many works that were on view in this exhibition can no longer travel because of their fragility, making this the Schwitters show for all time. ...

- This Sunday, our month-long exhibition of contemporary Philippine cinema closes with Dostoyevsky’s “Crime and Punishment” reimagined as “Norte, the End of History.” At 250 minutes, “Norte” is one of the shorter films by the reigning champion of slow cinema, Lav Diaz, but its vision is no less ambitious. It is an equally epic and engrossing tale about the moral degradation of Fabian, a young, radical ideologue who proclaims, “If we really want to clean up society, the solution is simple: kill all the bad elements.” ... Four more films from the exhibition are screening this week. Visit mo.ma/2rCO2PC for showtimes and tickets
