MoMA presents “Joan Jonas: Good Night Good Morning” through July 6.

American artist Joan Jonas (b. 1936) was one of the first artists to work in performance and video in New York’s vibrant downtown art scene of the 1960s and 1970s. Influenced by literature, Japanese Noh and Kabuki theater, and art history, Jonas’s work has experimented with how given elements such as distance, mirrors, cameras, and wind can transform perception.

Jonas’s work over the past five decades has been celebrated for connecting and redefining the boundaries between performance, video, drawing, sculpture, and installation. This exhibition is the largest retrospective of Jonas’s work to date in the United States and spans her entire career, from early works that explored the intersection of performance and technology to recent installations dealing with ecology and landscape.

In conjunction with the exhibition, ‘Out Takes,’ a performance using Jonas’s unused video footage, was on view through May 20.
