In honor of the U.S. launch of the new biographical photo book, Genesis Breyer P. Orridge, Sunday Sessions is pleased to present an afternoon celebration including performances by Genesis herself and a myriad of close friends and artists.

The event showcases classic films by Genesis Breyer P. Orridge and new films by Leigha Mason. Musician Tamaryn Djs throughout the afternoon. The event culminates with two exciting live performances by Starred and Genesis’ most current and legendary group Psychic TV / PTV3, accompanied by visuals from Jeanne Angel and Sam Zimmerman.

Born Neil Andrew Megson in 1950, reborn as artist Genesis P-Orridge in 1971, and once again as pandrogyne with h/er other half Lady Jaye since 1993 – Genesis Breyer P-Orridge has always been an advocate of the merging of art and life. Working with First Third Books, artist Leigha Mason, and music journalist Mark Paytress, Genesis has assembled a controversial lifetime of memories in a spectacular book of images.

Sunday Sessions is a weekly presentation of performance, moving images, dance, music, and discursive programs. Its mission is to embrace live arts as an integral aspect of contemporary practice and ask how art forms, which unfold in the here and now, produce specific ways of thinking and useful means to engage with the broader world. Every Sunday different artists, curators, thinkers and a range of other cultural agents are invited to share their latest projects and ideas with the MoMA PS1 audience.

This performance is part of VW Sunday Sessions 2013-14.
