In conjunction with the opening of Greater New York, Sunday Sessions presents the work of three New York vocalists and composers from the alienating and howled vocals of Pharmakon; the negrogothic doom spirituals and counter tenor of M. Lamar to a rarely performed work by the late American composer Robert Ashley presented by experimental composer and vocalist Paul Pinto. ‘The Voice’ is accompanied by a work for the MoMA PS1 restrooms titled Bathroom Songs presented by New York soprano Gelsey Bell.

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.
