At 2:30 p.m., Carolee Schneemann joins the exhibition’s curators Sabine Breitwieser and Branden W. Joseph, together with Stuart Comer, Chief Curator of Media and Performance Art at The Museum of Modern Art, in a conversation surrounding her work, featuring an introduction by Peter Eleey, Chief Curator, MoMA PS1.
At 4 p.m., composer and vocalist Amirtha Kidambi assembles an inter-generational quartet in a set of improvised music accompanied by Miya Masaoka on the koto, Erica Dicker on the violin, and Andria Nicodemou on the vibraphone.
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. MoMA PS1 offers one of the most extensive museum programs dedicated to live art in the world, representing a core component of the institution's mission since its founding.
