“What if you were to assume that you’re being constantly recorded, which in our contemporary moment of widespread surveillance is more or less true? You could say that there’s just a giant film production happening at all times. What happens to you and your being or identity within that reality?” Martine Syms discusses the politics of migration, surveillance, and presentation in “Projects 106: Martine Syms,” her first solo museum exhibition: Syms’ immersive installation—incorporating photography, film, and technology—opens at MoMA on May 27.

Did you visit the comprehensive exhibition "Hubert Robert" last year at the Gallery? Hubert Robert's work is now on view in our special exhibition, "America Collects Eighteenth-Century French Painting." This painting, "The Octavian Gate and Fish Market," comes from The Frances Lehman Loeb Art Center at Vassar College. Interestingly, it is almost identical in composition and scale to Robert's "Architectural Capriccio with the Portico of Octavia," located at the Musée du Louvre. The artist exhibited this work at the Salon of 1791. It entered Vassar's collection in 1880, less than 100 years after it was painted. The work is one of the earliest 18th-century paintings to enter this country.

Gun of the Day

GUN OF THE DAY - Remington M40A1 Sniper Rifle Caliber: 7.62mm Production date: 1969 Originally, these bolt-action rifles began as heavy barreled Remington Model 700s, but after a trip through the US Marine Corps armorers at Quantico, they came out first as Vietnam service M40 guns, and then with a return trip in the late 1970s, some emerged as rebuilds in M40A1 configuration. Currently this one is mounted in a camouflage McMillan synthetic stock that replaced the original wood stock. #GunOfTheDay #NRAmuseums #guns #rifle #history
