As a part of May amnesia never kiss us on the mouth, Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme invited Muqata'a to create a new performance in response to the sonic material they compiled over the course of the project. Muqata'a will perform within the installation in the Kravis Studio.
Muqata’a is an electronic musician based in Ramallah, Palestine. Produced using sampled material, field recordings, and electronic devices, the results range between harsh beats, abstract tones, and glitch. He cofounded the Ramallah Underground Collective (2002–09), and is part of the sound and image performance group Tashweesh alongside artists Basel Abbas and Ruanne Abou-Rahme.
Please note that all visitors to the performance are required to remain masked.
The exhibition is presented as part of The Hyundai Card Performance Series.
Major support is provided by MoMA's Wallis Annenberg Director’s Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art.
Generous funding is provided by the Lonti Ebers Endowment for Performance and the Sarah Arison Endowment Fund for Performance.
