Organized with Caitlin Baucom—founder of Brooklyn-based performance series TREVORSHAUS—Spittle of the Moon embraces communities founded on the basis of collaboration. Situating recent partnerships and established collectives alongside solo artists, the program brings together movement and sound-based practices in an immersive and sensorial concert.

The afternoon features original work from the collective MSHR, electronic R&B duo Dey, and a new project from choreographer and musician Sigrid Lauren and Emil Bognar Nasdor. These performances are presented alongside solo pieces from Baucom; writer and media theorist DeForrest Brown Jr. in collaboration with The Actual School; composer and perfumier Ziemba; and an only child, the solo project from choreographer and musician Quenton Stuckey. The program highlights a selection of artists whose practices have been formed by and nurtured in New York’s alternative and artist-run spaces. Together, they seek to create a sustainable future for their work and its audiences that is not reliant upon mainstream culture.

Tickets: $15 (MoMA Members $13)

MoMA PS1’s acclaimed VW Sunday Sessions performance series welcomes visitors to experience and participate in live art. Since its founding in 1976, MoMA PS1 has offered audiences one of the most extensive programs of live performance in the world. VW Sunday Sessions highlights artists responding to contemporary social and political issues through a wide variety of creative and critical lenses. Encompassing performance, music, dance, conversation, and film, the series develops and presents projects by established and emerging artists, scholars, activists, and other cultural instigators. With a focus on artists that blur and break traditional genre boundaries, VW Sunday Sessions embraces the communities in New York City that create and sustain artistic practice.

Since 2012, VW Sunday Sessions has presented a commissioning program resulting in new work by Trajal Harrell, Mårten Spångberg, Anne Imhof, Tobias Madison and Matthew Lutz Kinoy, Hannah Black, and Colin Self. Additionally, the VW Dome Artist Residency offers a platform for creative development and experimentation for artists at all stages of the creative process.
