Talking Nauman will include presentations from Julia Bryan-Wilson, Paul Chan, Abigail DeVille, Che Gossett, Kathy Halbreich, Mary Heilmann, Ana Janevski, Rin Johnson, Ajay Kurian, Sarah Lehrer-Graiwer, Thomas Lax, Carolyn Lazard, John Miller, and Aura Rosenberg, with more dates and participants to be announced.
Free with museum admission.
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.
