SUNDAY SESSIONS

Sunday, April 22, 2012
2:00 PM to 7:00 PM

Celebrating Kraftwerk: Greg Wilson

4–7 PM

Celebrating Kraftwerk’s extensive influence on electronic music, MoMA PS1 invites distinguished DJs and producers to play tribute sets in the installation Kraftwerk – Retrospective 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8. On four consecutive weekends, musicians explore different facets of the group’s pioneering sound that influenced musical styles as diverse as Electro-Funk, Disco, New Wave, Techno, and Hip-Hop.

Greg Wilson is regarded as one of the most important figures on the UK dance scene where he was instrumental in introducing new electronic, post-disco records coming out of New York in the early 1980s. The sound, he dubbed ‘Electro-Funk’, was in return profoundly influenced by the German electro-pioneers Kraftwerk.

TICKETS ($10 in advance, $15 at the door)
Tickets can be purchased HERE until 12 PM, Sunday, April 22.

ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 presents Photographs Not Taken

2–4 PM

Join ARTBOOK @ MoMA PS1 for a panel discussion and book signing for Photographs Not Taken, a fascinating collection of photographers' essays about failed attempts to make a picture. Editor Will Steacy asked more than 60 photographers to abandon the conventional tools needed to make a photograph and instead make one using words. In each essay, the photograph has been stripped down to its barest and most primitive form: the idea behind it. Panelists include contributors Nina Berman, Gregory Halpern, Amy Stein, and editor Will Steacy, and the event is moderated by Daylight Publishing cofounders Taj Forer and Michael Itkoff.

Launch of Paper Monument's Draw it With Your Eyes Closed

3–4 PM

Join us for a participatory program of art assignments, plus readings and revelry in celebration of this "mischievous and nourishing" (Dwight Garner, The New York Times) new book. Paper Monument is pleased to announce the publication of Draw It with Your Eyes Closed: the Art of the Art Assignment, a unique and wide-ranging anthology featuring essays, drawings, and assignments from over 100 contributors including: John Baldessari, William Pope.L, Mira Schor, Rochelle Feinstein, Bob Nickas, Chris Kraus, Liam Gillick, Amy Sillman, James Benning, and Michelle Grabner.

 


ABOUT SUNDAY SESSIONS
Every Sunday between February 5 and May 13, 2012, the MoMA PS1 Performance Dome will house Sunday Sessions, featuring an amalgam of artistic programming—from light, sound, and music installations to lectures by world-renowned scholars and special performances. Various other galleries and rooms inside of the former schoolhouse will also be activated during these weekly sessions.    

Sunday Sessions is supported in part by The Junior Associates of The Museum of Modern Art.
