Panda Bear aka Noah Lennox, front man and founding member of Indie Rock royalty Animal Collective, premieres his forthcoming new LP, Panda Bear Meets the Grim Reaper (Domino) in a one-off concert event presented and broadcast live by Boiler Room.

Featuring new material alongside heralded classics from Person Pitch, 2007, and Tomboy, 2011, Panda Bear is accompanied by a unique reproduction of visual art collaborator Danny Perez‘s tour video display.

An international cultural platform, Boiler Room has transitioned from underground streaming service to global online music portal. This event marks their debut broadcast from within MoMA PS1’s iconic geodesic dome as part of Sunday Sessions.

The full broadcast is available to stream online for those unable to attend.

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.

Sunday Sessions is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator with Alex Sloane, Curatorial Assistant and Rosey Selig-Addiss, Associate Producer.

Sunday Sessions 2014-15 is dedicated to Mike Skinner, 1974-2014
