Angels | MoMA R&D Salon 28 | MoMA LIVE

Reflecting on the dark and confusing times we are living in, it is appropriate to host a salon on Angels, to discuss the people that protect us and guide us, that mediate between individual and established power, that zero in on each soul with surprising intimacy and focus, and do their best. They are lawyers, teachers, ER attendants, firefighters, designers, artists, mentors, mothers and grandmothers, passersby...
Join us for a conversation about Angels in this MoMA R&D Salon hosted by Paola Antonelli, Senior Curator of Architecture & Design and Director of Research & Development at MoMA. We will explore what angels can teach us about the human condition and the ways in which they allow us to believe in the potential for change, in new possibilities and narratives.
