Handles, Haegue Yang’s installation commissioned for MoMA’s Marron Atrium, features six sculptures that will be activated on the first Thursday of each month for our after-hours event, First Thursdays. Mounted on casters and covered in skins of bells, the sculptures generate a subtle rattling sound when maneuvered by performers, and recall the use of bells in shamanistic rites, among other sources.
