Mixed media installation

The Print Shop at MoMA PS1

SADE ROOM (famously reclusive) is an installation by Donna Huanca produced specifically for the storefront at MoMA PS1’s project space the Print Shop.

For the third iteration of SADE ROOM (famously reclusive), Huanca collaborates with artist Hayden Dunham to create an immersive sensory exchange that incorporates taste, smell, sound, touch, and sight. The installation generates a new sense, one that utilizes hyper-reality through the artists’ separate art practices.

Unlike previous installments where the work was accessed voyueristically from the street, this iteration of SADE ROOM (famously reclusive) opens up the space for viewers to enter and engage with the objects in conjunction with a live feed of the performance.

Through this multi-dimensional environment the artists work to create a series of objects and sensory experiments in order to facilitate a dialog between materials and meta-reality.

MoMA PS1’s acclaimed VW Sunday Sessions program welcomes visitors to experience art live and in real time. Embracing performance, music, dance, conversations, and film, the program vividly demonstrates how these art forms can push us to engage with our contemporary world in creative, illuminating ways. With an emphasis on artistic practices that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, the program supports and commissions new work, inviting artists, curators, and other cultural instigators to share their latest projects.

Sade Room (famously reclusive) is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator MoMA PS1 and Mia Locks, Curatorial Associate MoMA PS1 as part of Sunday Sessions.
