Get schooled as MoMA PS1's returns to its origins as a public school with a one-night-only event organized by artist Ryan McNamara. Across MoMA PS1's entirely empty galleries, artists will assume the stereotypical roles of moony art teachers, intimidating PE coaches, goths, jocks, and cheerleaders — but their activities will be anything but typical.

Roam the hallways to enjoy participatory performance works, an open bar, and nostalgic childhood snacks, culminating with an epic dance party in the gymnasium.

About the MoMA PS1 Annual Exhibition Fund
Combining a fast-moving, provocative approach to exhibitions with the direct involvement of artists, MoMA PS1 presents an extensive program of exhibitions and events in its nearly 125,000-square-foot facility. Unlike other museums, where exhibitions are scheduled years in advance, MoMA PS1 maintains a flexible calendar. While this affords MoMA PS1 the freedom to present "of-the-moment" work, planning time is significantly shorter-often no more than three to six months. The MoMA PS1 Annual Exhibition Fund was created to help ensure the success of this vibrant program of exhibitions within the shortened timeline.

A portion of the cost of your purchase is tax deductible as a charitable contribution. Guests may deduct the cost of each ticket less $50.

If you are unable to attend the event, your contribution will be 100% tax deductible.
