SADE ROOM (famously reclusive), 2014

Sunday, June 22, 2014
6:00 PM to 10:00 PM

Mixed media installation

The Print Shop at MoMA PS1

SADE ROOM (famously reclusive) is an installation by Donna Huanca produced specifically for the storefront at MoMA PS1's project space the Print Shop. 

For the third iteration of SADE ROOM (famously reclusive), Huanca collaborates with artist Hayden Dunham to create an immersive sensory exchange that incorporates taste, smell, sound, touch, and sight. The installation generates a new sense, one that utilizes hyper-reality through the artists' separate art practices.

Unlike previous installments where the work was accessed voyueristically from the street, this iteration of SADE ROOM (famously reclusive) opens up the space for viewers to enter and engage with the objects in conjunction with a live feed of the performance.

Through this multi-dimensional environment the artists work to create a series of objects and sensory experiments in order to facilitate a dialog between materials and meta-reality.


Sade Room (famously reclusive) is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator MoMA PS1 and Mia Locks, Curatorial Associate MoMA PS1 as part of Sunday Sessions.

Sunday Sessions is organized by Jenny Schlenzka, Associate Curator with Mike Skinner, Producer, Alex Sloane, Live Programming Coordinator and Rosey Selig-Addiss, Production Assistant.


Sunday Sessions MoMA PS1 is made possible by a partnership with Volkswagen of America.
