NEW YORK, NY.- The Museum of Modern Art will remain open until 8:45 p.m. every Thursday in July and August, providing visitors with a relaxed atmosphere in which to view MoMA’s collection and special exhibitions, and enjoy live music and tapas in the The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. Exhibitions this summer include James Ensor (opening June 28), In & Out of Amsterdam: Travels in Conceptual Art, 1960–1976 (opening July 19), and Ron Arad: No Discipline (opening August 2).

Live music will be presented in Sculpture Garden, weather permitting, in two series, MoMA Music: BRAZIL (July) and MoMA Music: CHINA (August). Performances will be in two sets, at 5:30 and 7:00 p.m.

In July, MoMA Music: BRAZIL will feature Brazilian rhythms ranging from samba to bossa nova and forró. The series is presented in conjunction with the film exhibition Premiere Brazil 2009 (July 16–August 3), which introduces New York audiences to original and accomplished films by Brazilian filmmakers, focusing on recent work by both new and established directors. MoMA Music: BRAZIL includes performances by a variety of acclaimed and influential artists from Brazil’s vibrant music scene. The series was organized in collaboration with Brazilian music producer and filmmaker Béco Dranoff, whose documentary Beyond Ipanema/Brazilian Waves of Global Music (codirected and -produced by Guto Barra) makes its world premiere at MoMA on July 17.

In August, MoMA Music: CHINA will spotlight performers including renowned avant garde pianist Margaret Leng Tan, who will perform traditional and contemporary Chinese music. The Museum’s exhibition Projects 90: Song Dong, a large-scale installation in The Donald B. and Catherine C. Marron Atrium by contemporary Chinese artist Song Dong, runs from June 24 to September 7.

A cash bar and a seasonal tapas bar will be open in the Sculpture Garden, weather permitting. The Garden Cart will sell desserts, including gelato and sorbetto from NYC–based Il Laboratorio del Gelato. Terrace 5 will be open for light refreshments inside the Museum on the fifth floor. In the event of rain, the Sculpture Garden will close and music will be presented in one set at 7:00 p.m. in the Roy and Niuta Titus Theater 1 or 2. Bar and food service will be available in Cafe 2 on the second floor.
