January 9: Saturday Sessions with Jibade-Khalil Huffman

Saturday, January 9, 2010
4:00 PM to 6:00 PM

**Due to unforseen circumstances, Desi Santiago's scheduled performance has been postponed to a later date.

Jibade-Khalil Huffman presents Monster Island Czar, an epic poem that takes the form of a slide show. A poet and a photographer, Huffman's interdisciplinary approach invites notions of chance and indeterminacy by allowing the projectors and computers to run at different speeds and create different combinations of words, images, and sounds. With the Dadaists and William S. Burroughs cut-ups in mind, Huffman's performance interweaves visual art and literary tradition.

The January Saturday Sessions are presented in conjunction with open studios and discussions with participants in Rising Currents: Projects for New York's Waterfront, held from 2-6pm. Organized by The Museum of Modern Art in cooperation with P.S.1, Rising Currents will include a residency for teams of architects and designers at P.S.1 this fall and an exhibition at MoMA next spring. The residency at P.S.1 is part of Free Space, a new project with artists and nonprofit arts institutions in which P.S.1 provides collaborative use of its gallery space for events, rehearsals, and other live presentations.
