ALLGOLD is an artist run establishment that is currently in residence at the MoMA PS1 Print Shop. We organize activities that necessitate a dedicated space such as film screenings, talks, performances, social gatherings and much more. In an effort to concentrate ideas about creative control, intimacy, and alternative methodologies, this series of events will raise questions about sustenance and sustainability for what is elemental to artistic communities. Fittingly, ALLGOLD will introduce itself as a question of value in this context, with every intention of challenging declared standards and leaving the floor open for alternative possibilities. The day features live sound and music performances, talks, and visuals by those deeply invested in alternatives to mainstream methodologies.

A live performance and discussion by Detroit based musical collective Underground Resistance is accompanied by performances from Gen Ken Montgomery (Generations Unlimited), with Benton C Bainbridge, Andrea Beeman and Sean Julian and Charles Cohen. These performances are interspersed by discussion about underground platforms with Sohrab Mohebbi (Redcat In LA), Danna Vajda, and the volunteers of Spectacle Theater (Brooklyn).The event continues in the Print Shop with performances by Arcane Device, Unguent and Tommy Birchett.

Sincerely, ALLGOLD residents

This event is organized by ALLGOLD members Kevin Beasley, Inva Cota, Stephen Decker, and Golnaz Esmaili.

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.
