To celebrate the final Sunday Sessions of the season, British artist Micachu performs a set entitled Local Holiday, Local Sun, Locals, Local Rain, Local Number, Local Drink, Local Customs. Pulled from her vast collection of audio odds and sods, this one off performance of new material is matched with wildly colorful projections from her sketchbook.
Micachu aka Mica Levi, the 26-year-old leader of Micachu and the Shapes, is the unassuming figure creating tunes which manage to perfectly define these sometimes scary, often overwhelming, but always exciting times. A classically trained composer and musician, Mica garnered wide critical acclaim for her soundtrack to Under the Skin, including a BAFTA nomination for best Original Music in Film. She is currently the youngest individual to be named artist in residence at London’s Southbank Center.
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.
