The 2024 Studio Residency program will feature the choreographer, dancer, and artist Sarah Michelson. Offering space for experimentation, collaboration, and the incubation of new projects, this annual residency provides artists the ability to evolve their work, while offering audiences an opportunity to encounter artworks in development.
Born in Manchester, England, and based in New York, since the 1990s Michelson has created performances that examine the nature of dance as a discipline through its historical, physical, and intellectual rigor. Her recent work has incorporated painting, video projection, sound, and installation. While at MoMA, Michelson will continue her dance-making research.
“The place where the work will happen is pretty much always my starting point,” Michelson has said about her process. As such, this residency will offer the artist the opportunity to create work in situ, culminating in several public events in the Kravis Studio in the summer of 2024.
Organized by Ana Janevski, Curator, Department of Media and Performance, and Martha Joseph, The Phyllis Ann and Walter Borten Assistant Curator of Media and Performance. Produced by Kate Scherer, Senior Manager and Producer, with Olivia Rousey, Assistant Performance Coordinator, Performance and Live Programs.
