Sandra Mujinga’s larger-than-life hologram Flo—a new addition to MoMA’s collection, on view in North America for the first time—makes a case for being hidden in plain sight in an era of endless digital footprints. Flo addresses the threat of bodily erasure and surveillance technologies by proposing invisibility as a strategy for survival.
This digital panorama—produced by the Beijing-based firm Drawing Architecture Studio—is a design commentary on the rural urbanism of e-commerce labor in China. It offers a critical response to Frank Lloyd Wright’s utopian, anti-urban design of 1934 for Broadacre City, which is also in MoMA’s collection.
Shanghai-based artist Cui Jie creates an otherworldly depiction of Salam Tower, a waterfront skyscraper built as part of Qatar’s redevelopment efforts after the oil crisis of 1979. The edifice is interwoven with symbols from socialist monuments in China and Europe. A leading member of the post-1980s generation of Chinese artists, Jie focuses on painting, design, and the history of modernism, capitalism, and communism around the world.
