’If this was a dream, then he wanted to know when it would end. Maybe it would end if he went to see Lydia. But it was the one thing he was not allowed to do.' Arky Swann is a film composer in New York separated from his wife, who has made him promise to keep a terrible secret.

One day he finds his way to The Atrium at MOMA and sees Marina Abramovic in her performance The Artist is Present. The performance continues for seventy-five days and, as it unfolds, so does Arky as he considers marriage, art and the nature of commitment and love over a long-term union.

The Museum of Modern Love is the story of one of the world's greatest art events and a man in search of connection.
