WE BEEN HERE: CATACLYSM is a performance environment that calls for the convergence of sound, the body and imminent destruction.

Organized by Jamican born artist and zine editor Yulan Grant, whose video work addresses gender, race and sexuality, the installation welcomes the apocalypse with open arms and invites the audience to revel in child-like fantasy.

Sound artist Marco Gomez aka False Witness provides a live score while the audience observes performers absorbed in play, unfeigned by the visual calamity surrounding them.

With Jahmal Blair-Golden, Alexis Thompson, Andre Singleton, Shaquilla Dillon, Darlene Turner, Sam Coffie, Williams Hassan and Karl Andre.

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.

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
