Sunday Sessions presents VALIUM VALENTINE; a collaboration between acclaimed songwriter/producer and Miike Snow lead singer Andrew Wyatt and artist Sarah Ortmeyer in celebration of Valentine’s Day’s insipid power.
Throughout the six-hour musical performance Andrew Wyatt is joined by a cast of musicians for an improvised durational piece. Every hour a different female musician joins the group to lend a voice to a set of songs Andrew Wyatt created especially for the occasion.
In her artistic practice Sarah Ortmeyer often explores moments of ritualized happiness. In exaggeration of Valentine’s Day’s normative spirit, she transforms the VW Dome into a planetarium of egg-shaped stars within a grey-colored set that is as romantic as it is sad.
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.
