In conjunction with the exhibitions Inventing Abstraction, 1910–1925 and Abstract Generation: Now in Print, PopRally invites you to channel your own ideas of the abstract through video!

Create a one-minute video exploring abstract forms of any kind, then follow the directions below to upload it to our dedicated Vimeo group. Use a camera, use your phone, or use an app. The videos will be played on various screens and projections in MoMA's lobby and on the Marron Atrium walls during a special party on Sunday, April 7. Dream Pop queen Tamaryn will DJ the event, providing a hypnotic soundtrack to the collectively built abstract videoscape.

To submit your video and have it shown at the event:

-Sign in to your Vimeo account or create a new account at vimeo.com. You must comply with the Vimeo Terms of Service.

-Go to the event group page at vimeo.com/groups/PopRallyAbstract and join!

-Go to "Upload a Video." For help with uploading, please visit the Vimeo Helpcenter.

-Add your video to the "PopRallyAbstract" group.
The deadline for submissions is Monday, April 1.

Please note that this group is moderated and videos that do not relate to the project or that the Museum otherwise deems inappropriate will not be played at the event and may be removed from the group page. By posting your video in this Vimeo group, you are giving The Museum of Modern Art permission to display the video in the Museum, and to edit it as necessary. Videos longer than one minute in length will not be accepted. At the event, videos will be screened without sound.

Tickets for Abstract Currents go on sale Monday, March 18.

PopRally is supported in part by The Friends of Education of The Museum of Modern Art.
