MoMA PS1 presents the premiere of a new lecture-performance by Mark Leckey, commissioned to coincide with the final day of the exhibition Mark Leckey: Containers and Their Drivers.

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.

Mark Leckey: Containers and Their Drivers is made possible by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and by MoMA’s Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.

Major support is provided by The International Council of The Museum of Modern Art, The Contemporary Arts Council of The Museum of Modern Art, The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art and the Maurice Marciano Family Foundation.

Additional funding is provided by the MoMA PS1 Annual Exhibition Fund.

This newly commissioned lecture-performance by Mark Leckey is made possible by The Contemporary Arts Council of The Museum of Modern Art.

VW Sunday Sessions is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator, with Alex Sloane, Curatorial Assistant, Taja Cheek, Curatorial Assistant, and Rosey Selig-Addiss, Associate Producer, and Lucy Lie, Production Coordinator.
