MoMA PS1

MoMA PS1, located in Long Island City, Queens, is one of the oldest and largest nonprofit contemporary art institutions in the United States. An exhibition space rather than a collecting institution, it devotes its energy and resources to displaying the most experimental art in the world. MoMA PS1 presents a range of exhibitions, including monographic artist presentations, retrospectives, site-specific installations, historical surveys, and a full schedule of music and performance programming.

Founded in 1976 as the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center, it was the first nonprofit arts center in the United States devoted solely to contemporary art and is recognized as a defining force in the alternative space movement. In 2000 The Museum of Modern Art and P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center merged, creating the largest platform for contemporary art in the country and one of the largest in the world. Functioning as a living, active meeting place for the general public, MoMA PS1 is a catalyst for ideas, discourses, and new trends in contemporary art.

Spring Performance Festival

April 15, 2018–April 15, 2018

Posted on April 4, 2018

On April 15, MoMA PS1 will present an all-day celebration of New York City’s performance scene featuring more than 35 artists, alongside the opening of a slate of new exhibitions including Julia Phillips: Failure Detection, Projects 108: Gauri Gill, and Fernando Palma Rodríguez. Presented in collaboration with Brooklyn-based, artist-run space Secret Project Robot, the performance festival highlights work that intersects music, art, and nightlife, including solo and collaborative projects, improvisational theater, live music, and durational performances. The Spring Performance Festival is free and open to the public, marking the culmination of the VW Sunday Sessions season.

The festival highlights artists who first found an outlet for their work, as well as camaraderie and resources, within the city’s alternative spaces. These artists continue to present experimental projects and support the community that fostered their personal and creative identities. Emceed by Horrorchata and Merrie Cherry of BUSHWIG, the festival includes music performances in the VW Dome by Bottoms, Bunny Michael, Macy Rodman, Jennifer Vanilla, and DJ Dog Dick. Interspersed between these performances, FLUCT will premiere a new video work and Kathleen Dycaico will present a series of performances featuring Soojin Chang, DeVonn Francis, Sophia Park, and Kellan Delice. Throughout the building, visitors will encounter pop-up music, performance, and interventions, including performances by Somos Monstros, a collaborative project from Raúl de Nieves and Erik Zajaceskowski; a new durational play by Bushwick-based theatre group Saints of an Unnamed Country, directed by Cameron Stuart and Danielle Pomorski; a six-hour recital by Frank Hurricane; music by Invisible Circle and Dean Cercone; and DJ sets by DJ Bebe and DJ Adi. The program concludes with a rare performance by experimental band Black Dice, who are returning to New York after a five year absence.
