The Department of Media and Performance Art is pleased to present illlummminnnatttionnnsssss!!!!!!!, a performance by the artists Simone Forti and Charlemagne Palestine. As a key figure in the history of Minimalist dance, Simone Forti defined a new language of physical movement. Charlemagne Palestine is a pianist and composer whose experiments with many religious and ceremonial musical styles is rooted in his formal training as a cantor, as well as early experiences with carillon bells and electronic tone generators.

Organized by Stuart Comer, Chief Curator, and Ana Janevski, Associate Curator, with Leora Morinis, Curatorial Assistant, Department of Media and Performance Art.

The performance is made possible by MoMA’s Wallis Annenberg Fund for Innovation in Contemporary Art through the Annenberg Foundation.
