DO I NEED A TICKET?
Yes. A free timed-ticket entry is required for opening weekend (February 22-23). It’s going to be an exciting and busy weekend! Timed-entry tickets help us regulate traffic throughout the day to ensure everyone has a great experience.
If you just want to come see the Momentary: please register here for a timed-entry ticket (entry is offered every 30 minutes). Timed-ticket entry is required for opening weekend and allows access to see the Momentary and State of the Art 2020 (scroll below to learn more).
If you have a TIME BEING performance ticket: no need for a timed-entry ticket! We encourage you to arrive at least one hour before the start time of your performance to explore the Momentary. Doors open to performances 15 minutes before the start time.
WHAT CAN I DO AT THE MOMENTARY?
The better question is, what CAN’T you do? Opening weekend is going to be chock FULL of activities. In addition to exploring the cheese factory turned contemporary art space that is the Momentary, visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy State of the Art 2020, our inaugural visual art exhibition, and can enhance their experience by purchasing a ticket to a TIME BEING event (keep reading for more info). DJ Misbehavior will be playing music between shows, and visitors can also be on the lookout for special pop-up performances!
State of the Art 2020 is a free exhibition that spotlights 61 artists creating work around the country today, asking the question: what does art in the United States look like in the year 2020? Opening Saturday, February 22 at both the Momentary and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art.
TIME BEING is the Momentary’s inaugural festival of performance happening during opening weekend. It features artists from around the world and offers dance, music, and theater experiences.
