The Night Watch at MoAAP

The Night Watch at the Museum of American Art in Prishtina (MoAAP) is a series of events designed as part of Rilindja Rilindja Rilindja Program by Stacion - Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina that occurs once a month during the 6-month period when the Museum of American Art in Prishtina opens after visiting hours. These events aim for a direct approach and special access to the works and stories of the permanent exhibition "Museum of American Art in Prishtina" collection through discussions, performances, workshops, and readings within the museum space.

The American Museum of Art is an educational institution dedicated to collecting, preserving and exhibiting memories primarily of the Museum of Modern Art in New York and the International Circular Exhibitions of American Art program. It is precisely these MoMA exhibitions, some of which were curated by Dorothy Miller, that helped create the first common post-war cultural identity in Western Europe, an identity based on internationalism, modernism and individualism.

Each event in this series is a research and learning exercise on a single work or series of works from the Museum of American Art collection in Prishtina. An essay, documentary or discussion illuminates the subject in detail and places that work within the life and career of the artist or visitors and the broader historical contexts. This series is a valuable guide to exploring and interpreting some of the most beloved works of art in the Museum of American Art collection in Prishtina.


Stacion - Center for Contemporary Art Prishtina during the implementation of Rilindja Rilindja Rilindja will adhere to the measures suggested by the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Kosovo and IKSHP against the spread and infection with the Covid-19 virus.
