Spring 2019 VW Sunday Sessions

MoMA PS1’s VW Sunday Sessions live performance series will continue in the spring with 13 additional programs that foster the development of new work, highlight artistic process, and amplify the collectives and communities that create performance based practice in New York City. Encompassing performance, music, dance, conversation, and film, VW Sunday Sessions features programs that respond to contemporary social and political issues through a wide variety of creative and critical lenses.

This season, the VW Sunday Sessions commissioning program has expanded to present six new works from local and international emerging artists, underscoring a commitment to the development and presentation of new performance work. This spring has featured new commissions by Doreen Garner and NIC Kay; and coming up: Klein (April 14), and Jonathan González (April 19-21), following performances by Jeremy Toussaint-Baptiste (October 21) and Sarah Kinlaw (December 2) in the fall. Additionally, the VW Dome Artist Residency continues with participants including Moriah Evans, Laurel Atwell, Jessica Cook, and Emily Wexler. Now in its third year, this residency program for movement-based artists includes open studio events where the public can encounter artists’ works in progress.
