The program will begin with a second screening of Werner Herzog's documentary, Lessons of Darkness (1992). Following the film, New York-based artists in Theater of Operations will respond to and expand upon the exhibition's themes with performances, readings, and presentations.
VW Sessions highlights artists responding to contemporary social and political issues through a wide variety of creative and critical lenses. Encompassing performance, music, dance, conversation, and film, the series develops and presents projects by established and emerging artists, scholars, activists, and other cultural instigators.
VW Sessions is organized by Taja Cheek, Assistant Curator, and Alex Sloane, Assistant Curator, MoMA PS1 and is produced by Alexandra Rosenberg, Producer, with Chris Masullo, Production Coordinator, MoMA PS1.
VW 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 Sessions at MoMA PS1 is supported in part by the Mertz Gilmore Foundation.
