VW Sunday Sessions presents a site-specific performance by Norwegian musician, producer, author, and visual artist Jenny Hval. Hval is known for innovative, interdisciplinary work rooted in lyric and sound.
Hval's performance is a meditation on the sensuality of our everyday movements: the long scrolling movements of our fingers across phones, dreaming over the emoji alphabet, and other private choreography between body and object. She attempts to translate these movements into sound, music, and visuals, wondering how, "the things we touch are touching us back."
VW Dome $15 (MoMA Members $13)
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.
