Presented with Artbook | D.A.P., join for a presentation with tapas and drinks in celebration of the launch of El Internacional, a publication in honor of the eponymous restaurant.

In the words of publishers Dilecta / Foodcultura: "The first restaurant to introduce tapas in the United States El Internacional was about more than the food it served, conceived by artist Antoni Miralda and chef Montse Guillén, the neighborhood staple soon became an icon of New York’s downtown scene of the 1980s. This is the story of a project that transformed dining experiences into installations and performance art, setting a precedent for the social art to come."

Contributors include Bendita Gloria, Daniel Moquay, Editorial Tenov, Edgar Allan Poe, Fundación Arte y Mecenazgo, M. Wells Dinette, Soon in Tokyo, Swallow Magazine.

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.
