To mark the culmination of the 5th annual Art + Feminism Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon, VW Sunday Sessions brings together projects and organizations whose missions focus on radical archiving—both the preservation of politically potent content and the assertion of archiving as a radical act.
Together with Art + Feminism, organizations including Black Lunch Table, Barnard Zine Library, Bluestockings, Radical Reference, NYC Trans Oral History Project, The GenderFail Archive Project, The ICP Library, and Jen Kennedy and Liz Linden of pilot press... fill the VW Dome with their archives. During the program, these groups will be paired for short discussions covering practical and theoretical elements of their work, and what is needed to preserve and document underrepresented histories.
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.
