The Agnes Gund Garden Lobby, first floor
The Performance Program is part of MoMA’s increased focus on the historical as well as the contemporary practice of performance-based art. The ongoing series brings documentation and reenactments of historic performances, thematic group exhibitions, solo presentations, and original performance works to various locations throughout the Museum.
The Caravan Project (1999, 2011, 2012) is a “museum by delivery” installation and durational performance work created and performed by Eiko & Koma. Eiko and/or Koma will perform in a specially modified mobile trailer during Museum hours, allowing viewers to come and go as they please. The trailer is open on all four sides, enabling viewers to experience the work from whichever perspective they choose.
In conjunction with the exhibitions Performing Histories: Live Artworks Examining the Past and Tokyo 1955–1970: A New Avant-Garde
