The Office For Creative Research (OCR), in collaboration with Elevator Repair Service (ERS), presents A Sort of Joy (Thousands of Exhausted Things), a live performance that uses information from MoMA’s collection database as the source material for its script, exploring the Museum’s past and present exhibitions. Join us for this free performance in the galleries. This site-specific performance will take place intermittently throughout the scheduled event time.
