Showcasing a series of original short films set to a searing electronic soundtrack, composed and played live by the artist, the US premiere of Dinos Chapman’s audio-visual show is a multi-sensory experience not to be missed.

Better known as one half of the Chapman Brothers, the British artist released his debut album, Luftbobler, on The Vinyl Factory in 2013 – drawing acclaim across the board and leading The Wire to memorably credit him as “the David Lynch of the dancefloor.”

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.
