VW Sunday Sessions 2019-2020

November 03, 2019 – March 29, 2020


MoMA PS1’s VW Sunday Sessions performance series will return on November 3 with a series of twelve live programs of performance, activism, and experimentation that foster the development of new work. Four major commissions by Lorelei Ramirez, Emily Allan and Leah Hennessey, Nikita Gale, and Niall Jones span comedy, theater, dance, and sound. Additionally, musician Beverly Glenn-Copeland’s US premiere and a series of programs with members of New York City’s kink/leather and sex worker communities highlight performance that intersects closely with social justice.

The VW Dome Artist Residency continues as a locus for the development of new work with choreographer Leslie Cuyjet and visual artist Freya Powell. Now in its third year, this residency program for performance-based artists includes open showings where the public can experience artists’ works in progress.

Alongside these performances, a series of public programs will be presented in conjunction with the exhibition Theater of Operations: The Gulf Wars 1991-2011, which features over 250 works by more than 80 artists to examine the legacy of American-led military engagement in Iraq.

Encompassing performance, music, dance, conversation, and film, the full 2019-2020 season lineup is included in the press release below.

VW Sunday Sessions is organized by Taja Cheek, Assistant Curator, and Alex Sloane, Assistant Curator, and is produced by Alexandra Rosenberg, Producer, with Chris Masullo, Production Coordinator.


VW Sunday Sessions and the VW Dome at MoMA PS1 are made possible by a partnership with Volkswagen of America, who have supported the program since its inception.

Dance programming as part of VW Sunday Sessions at MoMA PS1 is supported in part by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
