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."
Tickets: VW Dome $15 (MoMA Members $13)
