Intermedia artist India Salvor Menuez brings together a multidisciplinary group of designers, visual artists, writers, and performers, including Maria José, Sara Grace Powell, Rowan Oliver, Ser Serpas, Women’s History Museum, and Ariel Zetina, to present original work utilizing performance, poetry, and music, to address mutual expression, community, and personal identity. The invited participants create a nonlinear narrative that touches on queerness, trans-feminine social dissonance, the othering of women, out identity, the symbolic connotations of garments, and collective consciousness.

India Salvor Menuez is part of New York’s new generation of artists who are building an extended community both within the city itself and through the Internet and social media networks, with individuals frequently collaborating and working together on common projects.

MoMA PS1’s acclaimed VW Sunday Sessions performance series welcomes visitors to experience and participate in live art. Since its founding in 1976, MoMA PS1 has offered audiences one of the most extensive programs of live performance in the world. VW Sunday Sessions highlights artists responding to contemporary social and political issues through a wide variety of creative and critical lenses. Encompassing performance, music, dance, conversation, and film, the series develops and presents projects by established and emerging artists, scholars, activists, and other cultural instigators. With a focus on artists that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, VW Sunday Sessions embraces the communities in New York City that create and sustain artistic practice.

Since 2012, VW Sunday Sessions has presented a commissioning program resulting in new work by Trajal Harrell, Mårten Spångberg, Anne Imhof, Tobias Madison and Matthew Lutz Kinoy, Hannah Black, and Colin Self. Additionally, the VW Dome Artist Residency offers a platform for creative development and experimentation for artists at all stages of the creative process.
